Good Morning My Friends,
This morning, I am loading a shot of the iconic, art-deco building, the Midland Hotel.
This interesting building is situated on the promenade at Morecambe. It was built in 1933, a very up-market, place to stay, where the rich and famous were happy yo be seen.
Although it did fall into disrepair, more recently, it has had a complete renovation and is now looking its sparkling self.
There is so much to interest you about this building that I have added an Internet link which can be accessed here for anyone whom may be interested.
Many thanks for your interst.
Please feel free to feedback on any aspect of the photograph. Bev :-)

I wonder if Poirot and Hastings ever stayed there :-) The sort of architecture I like, well presented in this fine composition. I like the view across the lawn and the soft light and colours. I have been to Morecambe a couple of times but can't remember seeing it. Must be out from the centre?

I like the foreground of small shrubs etc, then over the lawn to the fine building.
A very fine photo you have shown.
I remember some time back, there was a t.v. documentary of Morcambe, it included this hotelI think before restoration. I was there when very young, in the time when holidays were a weeks break.Spain, were is that?
Also remember the arcade with one penny old money machines.
Thanks for showing.

Very good sharpness & well composed, with adequate breathing space on all sides of the building. Good saturation, lighting contrasts, & colour. Tfs!

this is a very interesting place, I remember that it had been mentioned in some novels. You have captured the hotel excellently, giving us a nice idea of its fantastic architecture. The colors are also very pleasant. TFS!

I've never been to Morecambe. If I did I doubt I would be staying at this hotel; it looks beautiful and very up-market. You found some great light on what I suspect would be a cold January day. Your POV among the bushes (you weren't lurking I hope! ;D) works very well providing lots of foreground interest. Well done

This is quite a departure from your usual bucolic English countryside landscapes with the modern hotel which is caught in brilliant light and enjoys a lovely blue sky backdrop really brings out the lovely lines of this modern architecture.

It's good to see this building looking so smart - I really must visit it again now that the hoardings have been removed. Morecambe was the first seaside place I ever saw ( at the age of three, I think) because of the easy rail-link from Bradford. My parents and I would have a week there in the school holidays when I was still in the very early ( but crucially creative) bucket and spade stage of my development!!
You have chosen a good POV, making use of the green area and showing off the building's curves. The light is good too - in direct sun this building will be difficult to photograph - I believe the surface has reflective particles in it to add 'glitter'.

Good afternoon Beverly,
Almost thought this edifice is more contemporary than 1933, but frankly, on my second look realized its more styled as Bauhause fashion built that era.
Anyway, chosen a fine perspective from a fairly good distance to include its whole.
