The End of the Pier

I made my annual pilgrimage to the Rebellion Festival in Blackpool with my brother and, as usual, I had a walk around Blackpool after breakfast before the Festival opened at midday. Blackpool has certainly suffered over the last few years with the economy collapsing and it was disappointing to hear that, despite us having such a great summer weather wise, bookings had been pretty poor at the hotels.

Needless to say the weather was typical mid-summer mediocrity when we were here. I walked down the North Pier to have a look at the fair…this shot kind of sums up Blacpool at the moment.
