disapeiring

The title is from an Instagram hashtag

dedicated to the slow demise of Brighton’s West Pier. I always spend a few minutes contemplating this once-splendid structure whenever I get the opportunity of staying in Brighton. I visit in the early morning or evening when the light lends atmosphere to the place. This year I saw the  controversial; sky tower for the first time,  promoted as a 21st century version of the pier but I found it underwhelming, resembling an overgrown mobile phone mast more than anything else.
