1419 : Naturally Monochrome

160107-8 : Eastbourne, Sussex - c. 1984 (Alan Burnett)
I remember once, when I was quite young, asking my brother, "do you dream in colour or black and white?". He answered with annoying logic that surely one dreams in colour because that is the natural state - monochrome is merely an invention of early photography. But sometimes monochrome seems like the natural state - especially if one is talking about the English seaside. This photograph, taken in Eastbourne thirty years ago, illustrates the point well.

It is such a grand photo in the state that I see it. What a view and your capture keeps us looking around at all that is in the shot.
