Jaywick

By summ3r
No new puppies at the moment so here is something completely different from me!
This is a shot from a photoshoot I was asked to do last year in Jaywick near Clacton-on-sea. The area, which was once a thriving holiday village has become such a run down deprived area it is hard to believe people live there sometimes. As always the council has been promising to do something about it for years but nothing seems to get done, such a shame as there is a wonderful community spirit amongst most of the residents.
Hope you like it.

This has a 60's feel to it, works for me.

Definitely 1950s-60s in feel, it's the hard cold character of the conversion. The weeds and worn surface of the road tell the story.

I like the 60`s feel to this image Carol-Anne and the way the eye is taken along that narrow road. Mono works well in this one.
