Drapes

Out and about in Manchester at weekend and looking for one thing found something else.. The bright pink of the walls and ghostly torn drapes made me stop and exhale a sigh of sheer happiness and excitement. How could I not? Well you would too wouldn’t you?  This wall, these windows and the fabulous tornContinue reading “Drapes”

Status Curlers

Well Blackpool is always full of surprises and great photo ops and yesterday was no different than any other Saturday…pink bikes, wall art, old signs, Stags & Hens everywhere and then I saw these two lovely ladies dressed up made up and curled up too! The Scouse ‘Fashion Statement’ of going out with your hairContinue reading “Status Curlers”

Mustard

Took grandson to Ramp City in Blackpool this afternoon so he could let off steam and  frighten me to death while he ‘dropped in’ telling me he was going to ‘boost’ the bowl! But I soon lost interest in his death defying feats when I noticed this fabulous mustard yellow color on walls and woodworkContinue reading “Mustard”

Flowers Music & Food

Reading my twitter feed early yesterday I saw there was a community celebration being held at the Flag Market Square in Preston in response to the EDl protests so I quickly got ready and caught the bus to the city centre. Was surprised at how many police were on the streets but felt reassured thatContinue reading “Flowers Music & Food”

Lower prom steps

A simple elegant design that I really love, no place better to sit in the summer with a bag of salty chips than on these steps. Maybe because they remind me of a Roman amphitheater… a place for viewing or maybe just because I can always manage to get another shot of another unsuspecting memberContinue reading “Lower prom steps”

Alarm Bell

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”

set up

Saw this shattered bus stop window and knew immediately I had to do something with it..and so after some umming and ahing I tried to get the shot from inside the shelter..this wasn’t easy because there were people in the shelter waiting for the bus to open the doors and let them on. Well IContinue reading “set up”

red seats

Out meandering again this week…wasn’t my intention to waste time as had somewhere I needed to be but ended up dilly dallying along the deserted back streets and was duly rewarded for wasting time…turned a corner and there they were. Held together by peeling paint and rust these red seats really cheered me up andContinue reading “red seats”

North Sea, mist and the faint line of the horizon..my thalassotherapy

It was hard to see where the sky ended and the sea started at the weekend but this grey light is something I love and something that inspires me at this time of year. I have recently had the privilege of being in the company of someone who also loves this light so this isContinue reading “North Sea, mist and the faint line of the horizon..my thalassotherapy”
