The damp, dark, dripping forest of iron legs and braces that is the underside of a Victorian pier such as Central Pier, Blackpool, has its attractions. Bold shapes, silhouettes, reflections and interesting light offer photographic opportunities of the minimalist kind.

"The more exponential the marketing of images is growing, the more fantastically grows the indifference towards the real world. Finally, the real world becomes a useless function, a collection of phantom shapes and ghost events. We are not far from the silhouettes on the walls of the cave of Plato."
Jean Baudrillard (1929-2006), French cultural theorist and philosopher
