This shot was taken in an amusement arcade - it happens to be the Harbour Park on the seafront in Littlehampton - and is another instance of an acute camera angle isolating the image's important pictorial elements. As Chris explains:-

"The steep camera angle allowed me to omit most of the arcade's busy interior and use the strong curves of the roof to tie together the rather surreal miscellany of horse, lifebelt, fan and Pinoccio. In fact it was my second attempt: Ten days earlier a blade of the stopped fan had annoyingly coincided with the top roof strut. For the retake I also inched closer to the horse's head, bringing it's gaze deep into the camera".
