This is the third image from a series entitled Everything Must Go, a study of Whitley Bay and the state that it is in. This was produced as a college project, and while it's something of a botch-job I think it's a theme that I can develop further using different locales, or even all of them culmitavely.
This image was taken on the lower Promenade of Whitley Bay, where everything appears to be abandoned aside from a Surfing station that remains open despite the abject lack of any surfers in the immediate area. It's hard to tell whether this place is permanently closed or not, but it certainly doesn't look like it runs brisk trade.
