|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.
