Piers & me

Have always thought where there’s water there’s a pier or jetty and if there’s a pier I usually find it. Have had a love of piers since I was a child when my grandmother, Doris, would take me for endless walks and sand filled picnics on the beach in Blackpool. On a recent trip toContinue reading “Piers & me”

Painted Black & Serendipitous Blur

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Blur.” On a recent trip to London I sat on a window seat in a pub in Leicester Square and pondered on the fact that in the 1980s BT sold off a number of their red phone boxes to New World Payphones,  -http://www.telephonecardcollector.com/new-world-payphones.htm-     New WorldContinue reading “Painted Black & Serendipitous Blur”

street photography and waiting for someone to come in to the frame

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. The pier dates back to 1860s and has been severely damaged over the years from fires and storms butlife goes on and the pier opens again every season. As IContinue reading “street photography and waiting for someone to come in to the frame”
