The car-park on Leopold Grove at the side/back of the winter gardens.. depending on which entrance you use.. has recently been demolished and of course I wandered down to see what I could see..nothing much to see..lots of big angry machinery and tons of twisted metal and dusty cement, bricks and rubble.. I walked outsideContinue reading “Alarm Bell”
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?”
Manchester is always a pleasure to visit and this ‘retro televisions & filing cabinets’ cut out and paste urban art certainly caught my eye in the northern quarter last weekend. Love the little ornaments too!

Then it came to me…weekends with grandma…my grandsons and their friends are the most powerful force of nature I knowContinue reading “children…a force of nature”
A real ‘early bird’ …early morning, not quite daylight, the milk-float trundling through the streets with bottles rattling in the crates, the milkman probably whistling , bound to disturb people hoping to sleep just a little bit longer. As the sleepers turn over and slip back in to their dreams the milkman carries on hisContinue reading “Early morning milk delivery”
I often, frequently, end up on North Pier in Blackpool and have to say it is a favorite place for photography and just spending time.
