Seaside seats

Peeling paint colours on this shabby chic set of wooden seats fits the down-at-heel ambience of Cliftonville in Kent. These are not well-placed for taking in the sea views but offer a welcome rest along the esplanade for promenaders from Margate to Ramsgate.

This could almost be one for Blue Monday but it certainly fits the 'Pull Up a Seat' prompt

  2. Oh, lovely! I do love peeling paint, and sometimes pick up fab pieces of old fishing boats here. The real shabby-chic deal, as you can’t recreate the look.

  3. What is it about peeling paint (and benches) that is so appealing to photographers? Nice composition here Laura.
