Beach huts, Broadsands beach
What is it about beach huts that appeals? There is the variety of colours, each one chosen by an individual owner. One thinks of boats in a harbour and the many different cottage front doors. The beach huts colours are all on a white background which links them all. There is the humble nature of each hut, not too far distant from the makeshift allotment huts. There is their very human scale, perhaps reminiscent of "Wendy houses". In this case, there is their emptiness at this hour in the morning, allowing sheer enjoyment of their substance and appearance.
