They are pretty hopeful with all those benches outside.

People travel 35 miles from London, just to get a Rossi's Ice Cream. Hope no-one made the journey today.

The dog doesn't think much of it.

I spoke to the old guy just after taking this picture. The ticket machine ate £4 of his money.

If you live in the South East of England, there's a good chance that you've visited Southend for a day trip to the seaside. If you pick the right day it can be really nice. Wet Sundays in January are not the right days.

If you live further away, you might only have seen Southend if you are a Morrissey fan, for he chose it as the location for the video to his song Everyday Is Like Sunday about the terminal boredom of an out-of-season resort.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Trudging slowly over wet sand
Back to the bench where your clothes were stolen
This is the coastal town
That they forgot to close down
Armageddon - come armageddon!
Come, armageddon! come!

Everyday is like sunday
Everyday is silent and grey

Hide on the promenade
Etch a postcard :
How I dearly wish I was not here
In the seaside town
...that they forgot to bomb
Come, come, come - nuclear bomb

Everyday is like sunday
Everyday is silent and grey

Trudging back over pebbles and sand
And a strange dust lands on your hands
(and on your face...)
(on your face ...)
(on your face ...)
(on your face ...)

Everyday is like sunday
Win yourself a cheap tray
Share some greased tea with me
Everyday is silent and grey

lookagain Wonderful B&W - doesn't look like the prettiest day but great for B&W shots! #4 really appeals to me - the shiny, wet pavement, the bicyclist, the interesting background - very nice!!!

Nubster Love the dreary "Adventure Island." Great set - reminded me very much of a cold, rainy November day on the Atlantic City boardwalk a few years ago.
