Pictures Of The Past : Fishing And Chips


I suspect that I took this photograph in Bridlington: it has a feel of Bridlington to it, a taste of Bridlington. The fish and chip shops almost lean towards the fishing boats in the harbour in some kind of mutually admiring architectural swoon. The single anonymous subject looking directly at the camera provides a sliver of human interest amongst a phalanx of figures busy doing something else. But looking back at it from the perspective of 30 years, it is the lines that most attract me: the litter sign-post, the fishing rod and that strange angled shape - a thigh perhaps - at the bottom right of the shot.

  1. The fishing rod has a cork handle, as opposed to a fork handle....

  2. I like the fact that the few women you see walking in the back ground seem to be wearing outfits from the 40's.

  5. It looks a busy , happy place but too crowded for me. A neat shot though telling a good story.
