Colourless: coastal photography exhibition

Thanks to a flyer from Greenwich tourist information, I spent some of my Sunday afternoon discovering the very small Linear House Gallery and its latest exhibition by photographer Dave Mason. Titled Colourless: coastal black and white landscapes, it documents a journey around some of the bleak, forgotten and crumbling extremities of England's coastline. It will certainly appeal to anyone with an eye for the neglected, unusual, quirky or just downright weird - it's surprising how many penguins inhabit our shores! One of the many images which caught my eye was this one of the old Dover Marine station, still hanging on a cruise ship terminal.

The exhibition closes on 28 February, opening times (I believe) are 9.30 - 6 weekdays and 12 - 4 weekends. The Gallery is on Peyton Place, just off Royal Hill. Next up from 5 March is Greens of Greenwich by Tom Dingley.

The Coastal Photography exhibition looks very interesting. I would like to take some photographs of my own if I ever end up passing through some of these places.
