Great Yarmouth by Dusk

Posted by on Sep 12, 2016 in Photography, Travel, UK Landmarks and Visitor Sights

In Great Yarmouth Photographing some hotels – so I took a quick stroll on a balmy September evening. Winter is on the horizon and i have to make the most of nights like these.

There’s truly a stellar line up at the pier…..

Visually the esplanade and sea front roads are a little untidy – with bollards, rubbish bins and general clutter everywhere.

The lights are dazzling but the prizes really aren’t up to much….. it seems plushies are all the rage and that’s about all you can get here….. i mean good luck with winning that iPad baby….

You WILL put money in the slot……. in the vain hope of winning something worthless.

The diner looks like a piece of Americana but i question what architectural relevance that has to Great Yarmouth…..bar the fact that the rest of Marine Parade seems to want to model itself on the sunset strip so fits in with the general Faux vegas theme.
