Trying to stay afloat

Have been thinking and planning of taking photographs in water for some time now..always hoping to emulate the greats and get that perfect image of a sleek body swimming perfectly through the deep clear water… The reality however is a complete farce and very difficult to do.. While on holiday on the ‘Other Coast’ IContinue reading “Trying to stay afloat”

Dance everywhere

Caught these two rehearsing in the sunshine on Blackpool prom yesterday, love how the people sat down are watching them and probably wishing they could still do that.

JD2 in Blackpool

Just a few of the hundreds of images of the thousands of fans from yesterday’s Judgement Day 2 in Blackpool.

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”

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”

Still, there is something about this fading gem on Queen St that drawers the eye to the gorgeous balcony and I hope that beforeContinue reading “Glamour & Neglect”

Out of Season

In recent years all our seaside towns have fallen on hard times and Blackpool seems to get more than it’s fair share of bad press from the media so this week I thought I’d wander down South Shore to see how bad the damage really is. In an area full of once thriving shops, arcades andContinue reading “Out of Season”

Black & Lights

Heard the news about storm Barney yesterday and warnings of flooding, falling trees and the advice to stay indoors whenever possible. .. but had to go to Blackpool anyway so off I went in search of some stormy images on the prom, however the wind really was far too strong and after battling with cameraContinue reading “Black & Lights”
