Continuing on my Blackpool odessy we have another shot, this time showing the full North Pier at Blackpool along with the Blackpool Tower. This started off as a wide panorama…but It was a bit dull so I changed it into a Little Planet as you see here, which I like much more.


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.

217/366 The Central Pier, Blackpool

This is a shot of the Central Pier at Blackpool showing the Big Wheel there. I think you can tell the type of weather we enjoyed – very much sunshine and showers!
