This is the Ferris wheel on the beach front in Yarmouth. I cut away the spaces between the spokes, which took a very long time! I then looked for a background and eventually found one of the photos I took of the Eastern Edge Complex at Lowestoft. These are newly built beach huts (see ‘Lowestoft Beach Huts’ in the Abstract category). They seemed to give the picture some depth. The top half of the photo was the beach, which I didn’t like. The man walking was good but he was partly hidden by the wheel, so I moved him. I substituted the beach for the plain net curtains in my bedroom, and then ‘swirled’ the image to reflect the curve of the wheel. “Will you walk into my parlour? said the spider to the fly” the famous poem by Mary Hewitt 1829.
