I really liked the toy library posts they had along the beach at Clacton-on-Sea, both conceptually and the lovely colourful handprinted boxes. I liked the huts too, so this combo was too good a photo op not to take.
I have to confess I was also taken in by the pale, slightly overexposed, pastel colour cliché, but Clacton had that vibe: a lot of the beach huts had wonderful pastel paint schemes, and the lighting was again that British "the sun is somewhere just behind the cloud" bright but pale look.
