Victorian Bandstand, The Leas, Folkestone by fbailey

Victorian Bandstand, The Leas, Folkestone

For the Flash of Red theme for February (see the light) and also for my Get Pushed challenge from Adi, which was my interpretation of music.

This bandstand was originally built in 1894 and because of corrosion from the salt spray has been extensively rebuilt over the years.
@adi314 Hi Adi, at last, some sunshine! Here's my response to your challenge, hope you like it:) Felicity

This is such a wonderful bandstand and your capture is fabulous. I can just imagine the music wafting from it in the summer sunshine and crowds surrounding it!
It certainly is in a scenic spot!

What is it about bandstands? Do young people see them as we do?

Superb lighting, and looks fantastic in B&W

@stevepo I think the youngsters are so glued to their mobiles they don't even notice it ... I just think it's a little piece of history and rather romantic:)

Hi FB - this is the most awesome shot. It's funny - I was just reading about contre-jour photos today and this is a perfect, text book example. So skilful! :)

What a beautiful bandstand and beautifully lit. (Just have a secret urge to straighten it ever so slightly.......LOL Oh I am so OCD sometimes!!)

@casablanca I know what you mean (and I thought I'd straightened the horizon too)!

@robz Must confess I only went around the back to avoid the litter bin in front (it's hard shooting IR towards the sun). I saw the shadows and tried to hide the sun behind the roof - a hapoy accident!
