Lighting the way to shop

An inverted photo showing the ceiling of a shop. Inset lights lead the eye into the distance.

The lights drag you into the shop. Spend money. Spend money.

Light Trails in the Car Park

Light Trails in the Car Park

The lights of cars in the car park of Blackpool Shopping Centre blur into ghostly lines.

This photo is built from 4 separate images taken at the exact same spot, merged into one in Photoshop.

I thought I had posted a similar photo to this one but I cannot find it. It’s lost to the mists of time. Annoying..

Top up your phone by throwing it in the air and seeing where it lands. Or something.

An opportunistic shot I took in Blackpool Shopping Center of a van passing by. I think it’s an An Post van.

School girls sing the carols

A group of girls from a local school sang Christmas carols in Blackpool Shopping Centre earlier today.

They were brilliant! I wasn’t much in the mood for listening but they lifted my spirits. They were full of life, happy, joyful and really seemed to be enjoying the experience.

Unfortunately we were in a hurry or I’d have stopped to ask what school they were from. Does anyone know? Their uniforms were purple..
