Salt & Vinegar

When passing a window and something makes you stop and view the scene before you, you then have to convince the owner of the closed diner to open the doors and let you in for 5 minutes, you’ll be quick, really quick you promise him,  you just have to get in and try to captureContinue reading “Salt & Vinegar”

I couldn’t resist..could you?

Saw this fabulous glass block window this morning in The Winter Gardens Blackpool and couldnt resist it’s simplicity and beauty… The east facing wall on the top balcony has a row of these arched windows and I always try to get up in ‘the gods’ to see them …this morning the light was just rightContinue reading “I couldn’t resist..could you?”
