Arlington House looms over the Margate seafront, yet another reminder that Margate is a town with a history. It has no peers along the front, so begs to be photographed, but it’s also quite hard to do it justice. I took lots of photos and this is the only one I felt that captured it in its context well.
It’s a testament to modern sensors that I have any image at all, as I shout this for the sun (F/11 at 1/3200 of a second and ISO 100!), so out of the camera the tower block was completely in shadow, as was most of the scene. If you look closely you can see a lot of noise, but the fact that there was still a workable picture in there is still feels a bit like magic.
