“… we produced a bundle of pens, a copious supply of ink, and a goodly show of writing and blotting paper. For there was something very comfortable in having plenty of stationary.” Charles Dickens, Great Expectations

I first took this shot with my phone last year. The Brighton Lanes were empty, the light was fading and it was raining. I made some original edits and realised that I had something special here. The first incarnation was posted on social media where it instantly went viral and was subsequently reposted and shared thousands of times.

I decided to revisit the project with my professional Lumix G7 camera and recreate the scene, but this time, it was going to be a little bit more special. Many people commented on the Dickensian look and feel of the composition ….So that’s where my creative brain started to get excited.
