When passing a window and something makes you stop and view the scene before you, you then have to convince the owner of the closed diner to open the doors and let you in for 5 minutes, you’ll be quick, really quick you promise him, you just have to get in and try to capture the image that was calling to you through the window. The table, those legs, the red benches, the repeated red slats on the benches, the glass window, everything perfect, everything so clean and quiet but it was the salt cellar and the vinegar bottle that brought it all together for me.
Call me crazy …I just love the color, symmetry and simplicity of this ‘chillin’ space at Ramp City in Blackpool.
Worn,torn red leatherette seats and scuffed mustard yellow walls …Americana in Blackpool. I love it!
Took grandson to Ramp City in Blackpool this afternoon so he could let off steam and frighten me to death while he ‘dropped in’ telling me he was going to ‘boost’ the bowl!
But I soon lost interest in his death defying feats when I noticed this fabulous mustard yellow color on walls and woodwork
My search for something to photograph got even more interesting when I found this Americana retro style area with two tables and 4 rows of diner style seats secured firmly to the floor.The only kid in there left when he saw me with my camera and so I was free to crouch down in front of the window and get my shot of the day..
Love the color, style of the seats, random bits of rubbish, rust and the wooden floor.
So there you have it again…another hidden treasure in Blackpool, inspired by William Eggleston , Ramp City, not just for the skateboarding, scooters & bikes but also for the fabulous mustard walls and faded red leatherette seats.
