Sometimes, oftentimes, especially on this wonderful coast, the light of the spring sunset hits just right, catching the windows of deserted hotels and lighting the walls of their empty spaces. Closed and shuttered now, the ghosts of spring times past walk empty breakfast rooms.
A very different view of the U.K’s favorite seaside town, famous for its Tower, Pleasure Beach, Illuminations, family holidays, Stags & Hens parties, and rowdy nights out, Blackpool is very quiet this spring time. There is however a strange poetic beauty in the stillness and quiet, giving me the opportunity to capture these fabulous buildingsContinue reading “Socially Isolating in Blackpool”

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!
