Send In The Clowns
The British Seaside has been a source of inspiration for many photographers and so I spend a lot of time trying to avoid making a Martin Parr or a Tony Ray-Jones influenced picture, which is hard as they are part of my creative DNA.
I really liked the sight of this vintage clown ride with the horizon behind it but I think we'd all agree clowns appear fairly sinister. Apparently some phobia studies suggest an estimated 20 to 30% of the entire population find clowns scary and some of that group finds them frightening enough to trigger panic attacks. The fear of clowns is called coulrophobia which isn't even recognised by my spell checker.
