It came from outer space


‘It came from outer space’

I took our broken dishwasher to the tip, then headed off to pick up tickets to see Eddie Izzard from the De LA Warr Pavilion box office.

Whilst there, I took a quick look around their current exhibition ‘In the realm of Others’. Definitely take some time to have a look.

Obviously they enforce a no photography policy within the exhibition but I was taken with the view outside, looking through the blinds. No harm in taking a picture within the exhibition hall but not of the exhibits I thought.

What you see here is the concrete bandstand with one of the iconic domes behind.

Looks a bit like a futuristic spacecraft.

Just another cliche

Just another cliche...

One of the domes at the De La Warr Pavillion, Bexhill.

For those who are unfamiliar, this is one the most recognised buildings along England’s south east coast and as such it has become one of the most photographed as well. I’ve heard many a groan at camera clubs as yet another shot of this place is projected onto the screen.  Familiarity breeds contempt as the saying goes but love it or hate it, it is still a very photogenic landmark. However, due to its’ popularity with photographers it is becoming more and more difficult to find new angles to shoot it from. The shot I’ve put up today is a very popular composition and for good reason, the design of the structures just lend themselves naturally to the rule of thirds and all that good stuff.

If you happen to be walking past on a day with great light and shadow, I bet you’d find it hard to resist taking a shot or two.

This shot may be a cliche, but I don’t care.

Processed in Lightroom 5.3 only for a change.
