Colourgrab in Southend

by gordonmichaelsutton

Here’s a trio of shots where I tried to grab some colour from a grey, overcast day in Southend. The bright and bold design on the helter skelter seems to hold out the promise of fun. The dull light serves to highlight the colours that little bit more I think.

The weather certainly doesn’t help but seaside towns in early March aren’t ever really at their best. The owner of this fish and chips cafe, for example, hasn’t got round to fixing up his signage yet, giving the place a neglected look.

And without the sunshine and the screams of the riders on it’s hurtling vehicles, the roller coaster looks a little forlorn and futile too.
