Weekly Photo Challenge: Edge

I’ve been experimenting with different styles of composition of the same subject – in this case the rusted ruins of Brighton’s West Pier, which first opened in 1866, was closed to the public in 1975, and was sadly burned down due to arson in 2003.

The skeletal remains are always a popular subject for photographers and tourists alike, but due to its location (in the sea!) it seems that there are only so many angles to take a shot from.

However, here are three of my images of the pier for this week’s Daily Post Photo Challenge: Edge showing three different kinds of edge that can be found in a photograph…

The edge of the subject on the edge of the shot… brighton-west-pier-1

The edge of the foreground at the bottom of the shot… brighton-west-pier-3

The edge of the frame filled edge to edge… brighton-west-pier-2

I hope you like them… πŸ™‚

    Great pics. It was so sad when the pier burnt down. I have lots of fond family memories of days out – pretending to be scared of falling between the slats: ice cream; penny slots; roundabouts; and candy floss!

      I still find the gaps between the wooden slats on any pier a bit disconcerting πŸ™‚
