Starting a little series, mostly street photography, all b&w.
Strange place. I love our seaside resorts out of season, there's nothing more bleak and desolate than an empty ice cream parlour on a rainy day. But I found Great Yarmouth on a sunny day, heaving with visitors, pretty grim too. I think partly it's because we've never done beach holidays, this was unknown territory for me. Very photogenic if not very inviting...
We're going away for a couple of days but hoping to have internet access. So with luck No. 2 in the series will follow tomorrow.
Thanks for looking,
Moira

Two things so far apart and so much a part of our lives these days, and won't it seems go away.

The Occupy mask against the banking greed and the tracksuit worn by the non athletic almost as a badge of their lack of fitness, is it a protest as well?

Couldn't agree more about the feeling of desolation at a summer seaside town out of season. A bit like seeing the inside of a disco in daylight...it's never the same as when all the lights are flashing and blinding one in one way or another.

Magnificent juxtaposition in this one.

Two User Awards today! Thanks so much to Barbara and Malc.

Quote: Was this one of those "pick your frame and wait images"

It was, Anne. I'd have stayed around for more but Bill was getting bored. As Jeff says, thousands of people flock there every year...particularly the old & infirm!! I was hoping for a mobility scooter, because that's the real story of the town.

Quote: Memo to self: Research how Yarmouth ever became Great!

Very much my sentiments...
This is the first of four shots that I'm really pleased with, all taken within an hour or so.
Thanks folks, we have a few minutes free before other engagements, I'll try to see what's been going on here.

Result of research ~ Yarmouth first called Magna (Great) in 1272 in the reign of Edward I, to distinguish it from Little Yarmouth, or Southtown.
