The Midland from The Battery

Here is one of my favourite photographic subjects - The Midlan Hotel in Morecambe. It is a splendid building. It is obviously an example of art deco but it was designed to look like a ship in port. This image has been distorted by the addition of the conservatory and the roofline too has been changed. The bow of the ship actually goes to a point but you have to check out the perimeter wall to find this point.

I took these photos with a compact camera and took them from the Battery car park on Morecambe prom. Compare them with the photos from a couple of days ago. all I had to do was turn round to take a lot of differnet photos. I have simply increased the contrast to get to the photo on the right.

Happy snapping
