I took this one beneath Lowestoft's Claremont Pier, which is one of my favourite buildings. I love piers in general. This one's home to a slot arcade, and these days, a bar, nightclub, roller disco and cafe. When I was a kid, I was obsessed with the place - I'd draw maps of the layout of its arcade machines and all-sorts. Anyway, I'd never been underneath it, mainly because the tide is rarely low enough to allow such madness. I loved the view out to sea, and the way in which the water appeared to be a different colour between the piers' supports. Clearly a secret time-tunnel.
And this is quite obviously a bridge-beast gaining sentience. It's the bridge between South Lowestoft, where my family have lived as long as I can remember, and the train station/town. As a kid, I had nightmares about being halfway over this bridge when it split in two and rose up to allow ships through. Still get a little frission, every time I walk over it.
Two photographs that I love, taken on the same day. What are the chances, eh?
