Tram Ride Home.
A late journey home at the end of the season meant a tram halfway but when I saw what a great photo opportunity it turned out to be I was really happy I missed the bus.
Developing & Printing.
Found this colourful scrabble of words & signs under a rather grotty corrugated plastic awning.
I’m always drawn to empty shops, empty hotels, any building in the middle of or in need of renovation. The interiors seem to hold a story and there’s something nostalgic about these windows when the light is just right and the reflected streets are empty.
I have a thing for chairs..
…and I love these retro-style cafeteria tables and chairs. I think the seat covering was once a darker colour but the faded pink vinyl really fits the decor of the cafe.

The Loneliness of the Hotel Bar
One of those moments when I was walking along a busy main road about 9 at night and saw this image through a hotel bar window. It’s one of those scenes that I have no idea why I like it or why I have this mad feeling of having to capture it before someone walks…

Lighting the corridors

Retro tiles on Topping St
Wandering around Blackpool town centre again I came across these fabulous retro tiles covering the wall of a shop. The rusting battered air vent added to the quirkiness of the decor making the shop on Topping St a small work of art for my pleasure. Imagine having these tiles covering just one wall in the…
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 I…
