Love the composition created by putting that bizarre figure prominently in the foreground. Works well in mono as you are not overwhelmed by the colour of that figure.

Albert, let's just say that in colour he is totally vile. He's fairly horrible in b&w, but in a different sort of way...
Life was grim in 1272, and in some places they still respect tradition.

Sophistication comes to the beachfront, never did find ketchup interesting sadly, I'm a broon sauce person from way back.

I think that character would put me off eating burgers for life, Moira, he's hideous Grin Carol

Which reminds me that we have a proper guest house breakfast waiting for us...

Well Dougie, at least in black and white you can imagine this is broon sauce WinkWink
The cooked breakfast sounds good Moira SmileSmile

This critter reminds me of a hot dog, which is traditionally eaten with mustard---

I hear there are some very fine mustards made in the UK

Angela and I have just booked two weeks In GY as a direct result of your advertising images. Have you thought about contacting the Tourist Board?

A great capture, Moira, really made me chuckle! A very fine bit of mono work here again, too Wink

I'm sure this was a very colourful image Moira, but it works so very well in Mono. Good comp'.

Oh, my life, it's gruesome! Thank you for the warning though, Moira, I'm fairly familiar with Norfolk out of season and in, but I haven't been to Yarmouth and perhaps I won't put it on the 'to do' list.

Well I'm not so sure about English mustard. But this is indeed a giant hot dog, anointing himself with bright red ketchup. It matches his tongue and eyebrows - such tasteful coordination...
Thanks everyone.

I wouldn't buy a hot dog, and this fella wouldn't encourage me to, either.

Self-medicating... I shall think of that whenwver I apply a sauce in future...

Excellent. I love the sign on the building saying Hamburger when it's a Hot Dog and the people munching away in the background whilst a Hot Dog readies itself with sauce to be eaten.
Great piece of street photography Moira.

P.S. I'll have mustard, ta.Grin

Thanks for the comment and the welcome Moira. It's really good to be on the site at last, now I've retired! I love the two completely unrelated parts to your image!! Street photography has so much to offer, especially if you have the eye to see it, which you definitely have!

Just would not be a holiday joint,
without a hamburger joint too Moira !!
Love the bit of drainpipe at the top here.
The shadow on it adds a nice little bit of detail !!

Brought a smile to my face. Glad its b/w, no colour to distract from the humour in this pic.

I'm finally beginning to ketchup with your recent uploads Moira and no I've not been on the sauce I've just been too preoccupied with work and family matters to contribute much lately
