This is another entry in the modern beach hut competition featured in the Mablethorpe annual Bathing Beauties Festival, 2007. At the top of the hut a lens swivels around and projects an image of the outside onto a table within.

Previously, I posted images of 2 other huts in the competition.

Please do not adjust your eyes, it's all a bit skew whiff.

"Masters of Vision" is the name of a free exhibition of excellent photography showing at Southwell Minster until 30 August. Really worth a visit. The Minster and surrounds are quite nice too.

Come Up And See Me

Come Up And See MeCome Up And See Me, a photo by lincoln_eye on Flickr.
"Come Up and See Me" is the name of this beach hut designed by Mancunian, Michael Trainor, for the modern beach hut competition featured in the Mablethorpe annual Bathing Beauties Festival, 2007. This hut is inspired by a gin and tonic: two light tubes are shaped as straws and a decorative "wheel" represents a lemon or lime placed on the side of the glass, cocktail-style.

"Eyes Wide sHut" won the beach hut competition.
