Place Holder Entry – Photographs of Hastings Pier, Before

Just a quick apologetic note because I have been ignoring my readers and I know you’ve missed me.  I’ve missed you.  I’m feeling hugely uninsightful so this entry has very little writing and is mostly photographs.
I’ve chosen a selection of recent pictures I took of Hastings Pier.  I spent a wonderful afternoon on the Hastings’ seafront and enjoyed photographing the pier from every angle.   Very sadly it was destroyed by arsonists only a few days later. 
The gorgeous Victorian buildings have been lost forever.  We can remember them in their glory and hope the town council has the wherewithal to reinvent the seafront with something equally compelling and majestic.
There is one spectacle grander than the sea, that is
the sky; there’s one spectacle grander than
the sky, that is the interior of the soul”
Victor Hugo

Hope you enjoy the photos.  I’ll be back to being insightful soon
