Piering Into Infinity

The Felixstowe pier was built for the Coast Development Company Ltd., which was formed in 1898 by a merger between Belle Steamers Ltd. and other local concerns. Promoted in 1903, the pier opened in August 1905 to a length of half a mile. It incorporated a 3 foot 6 inch gauge electric tramway.

The tramway service was suspended at the outbreak of World War II and never resumed. The pier was sectioned for defence reasons and its seaward end was demolished after the war.

Then in June 2012, plans to demolish the existing pier and replace it with a new modern design were announced. The pier's owners, Pier Amusements Ltd, said they intended to focus on the part of the landmark attached to the prom and build a futuristic new attraction. In September 2012, the plans, which included a multimillion-pound entertainment and conference venue with restaurants and retail units, were recommended for approval by officers at Suffolk Coastal District Council, and the following month the Council gave the go ahead for the project.

I'm not big on sharing videos but this one surely deserves, I was blown away by the talents of this young women, from tough beginnings arriving in London and being homeless, showing all of us that the human spirit can take you anywhere you desire... fly Susana Silver.

"Susana arrived into London under tough circumstances. She had nothing but a bridge for a roof. Miraculously, the gift of a two string guitar, along with her extraordinary talent, saved her life. She began to perform on the South bank, which quickly built her a fan base and provided her with the funds to invest in better and better equipment (as well as a six string guitar). She has now found her home in this city, and is rapidly becoming a recognised name in the music scene. So what do we fundamentally get from her performance?

We get the first-hand experience of a survivor that fought against the odds. We get a woman who sings from a place of authenticity and love, rather than ego. We get an abundance of breath-taking talent, with an equal measure of modesty. Most of all, beneath the love that she purposefully spreads through music, we feel inspired to follow our own dreams with the same gratitude and compassion."

Democracy at its best ..........
A church that worships an invisible flying spaghetti monster can now apply to be registered as an official religion in Poland, after a 2013 court ruling was overturned on Tuesday.

Love being creative and photography has given me the freedom to explore that like no other medium. My background is from normalish upbringing, I always will and have to be creative in some way, be it writing music in my home studio or design in some form. I'm self confessed tech head and gadget freak, I started young I guess due to my father being an electrical engineer and have never been far away from anything I can tinker with, beta tester for #MagicLantern for my Canon gear at the moment and tinkering with Android.

I love capturing how I see the world through my eyes, and I hope you do also ......

I created the +B&W Photographers Community where some outstanding work can be seen, we're a community of all abilities centered around sharing and discussing your black and white work, while at the same time helping others learn the craft of black and white photography.
