I was a bit ambivalent about the shiny new addition to our Brighton skyline but I’m quite fond of it now. Here it is seemingly emerging from one of the remaining cast iron posts of the West Pier, maybe a metaphor for something there… not quite sure what though !
This is slightly off the beaten track from my usual photographic subject matter as it involves no people (or animals) and I’m not a great fan of what I would term loosely as landscape/ architectural photographs. I know it hopelessly naive but for me my trouble with them is that you could go back the next day and given the same weather conditions you could produce the same or very similar image. Anyway enough of that, here is an image of Brighton’s latest pride and joy the ‘love it or hate it’ i360, having said that I’m uncharacteristically ambivalent about it, to me it’s a glammed up fairground ride for the middle age and middle class. I’m sure it will be have a bright shiny financially successful first few years but I suspect after a decade or so it will look as tatty as everything and everybody in this wonderful town.
