There's something very small town USA looking about this, but I see it is Canvey Island. The wild west of Essex.Grin

Colourful even the hair. I see there is little palm trees there, must be a mild climate. Well seen Chris...........Sandy

By heck, it's few years since I went to Canvey Island! As Malc says, it does have a look here of a small US town Wink Two fine captures, Chris Smile

Interesting thought. I'm seeing this as rather sad, some people's fantasies are very limited...

Small town Georgia, Louisiana, Arkansas maybe, but small towns would not support (financially) where I live--- a great shot!

Oh yuo naughty girl, Chris, it's a classic! I think this must be what Wilko had in mind when he wrote 'Roxette'!

Gosh...I don't know...where WOULD I find an adult gaming centre in this place? They tend to keep 'em so hush hush, don't they? Wink

Love the graffiti in V2, by the way.

Very well captured scenes, Chris Smile
