Digital Photography


In Southampton, all the local seasidey places are quite urban and bleak in a 1980s USSR sort of way. Brutalist. Terminal. This is ok though, I like this. I like the juxtaposition.

You won’t find many (or any) tourists there – it seems a backdrop of power stations and a view of oil tankers isn’t to everybody’s liking. It feels a bit like the end of the word; a post-apocolypse with beach huts.

    Love the colors, but agree with you: the overall atmosphere is quite creepy. Gay emptiness? Empty gaiety? The contrast just doesn’t feel right.

    Nice photos! Beautifully colored places, but so lonely. Brings to mind the phrase “what if they give a party and nobody comes”…
