A Serendipitous Story: A New Perspective of Art Deco

Art Deco Lights-004

Good morning from a cold Hastings day.  I am so late this morning as I just couldn’t get out of my warm, cosy bed.  It has been very cold this week and today I didn’t need to get up for anything so why should I?

Anyway this week Cee from Cee’s Photography has asked us for our photos showing different perspectives.

A couple of weeks ago I was really lucky with the weather.  When I got up on this Friday it was raining hard.  I had a plan for our social snappers group.  I wanted to walk around Hastings and take different photos of the Art Deco features.  I wanted to demonstrate the different  perspectives that we can take of the buildings, and in particular our street lights.  Needless to say I wasn’t happy.  I did have a backup plan of photo editing etc indoors, but we want to get out and take photos.

As I was eating my breakfast I noticed that the rain had stopped and the sun was trying to shine.

By the time I got into the Women’s Centre at around 9.15 AM the sky had completely cleared.

And as you can see, the sky was totally cloudless for the whole time we were wandering around town.

But in the afternoon the weather closed in again and started raining hard again.

Such a serendipitous day, which is also part of Marilyn’s challenge at SERENDIPITY.

  1. Love your street lamps. Tres chic. We don’t even have street lamps. We just have darkness. Most interesting and great perspectives. There’s always a story with any picture, isn’t there? That’s one of many things which makes taking pictures so much fun. Thanks for participating!!
