photoblog image ...Just put some bleachers out in the sun...

...Just put some bleachers out in the sun...

...and have it out out on highway 61. Well, I guess it ain't: it's North Pier on a lull...how about writing a song about that, Bob? :-)

This has a lovely feel about it, really like the composition and the processing.

Sun's on it's way...
Dave Carrington: Hi, Simon. The Sun's here! It will soon be followed by a phalanx of grockles...smile

very cool image Dave, it has a time gone by feel. Well at least to the 70's because of the plastic chairs, lol. mal
Dave Carrington: Cool & Blackpool aren't readily associated, Mal! I think those chairs have been there since the 70's...

Well, if you're travelin' in the north country fair,
Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline,
Remember me to one who lives there.
She once was a true love of mine.
Dave Carrington: Ah, yes...what a great song, Bill.
Now thats what I call creative, take a very ordinary location which has been done to death an make a very attractive image from it, great feel Dave, very retro.
Dave Carrington: Thanks, Alistair. It's still possible to find something different, but it's getting tougher! smile
Alistair puts it perfectly- great balance and geometry in the frame. Nice understated processing too.
Dave Carrington: Thanks, David. I'm glad you like the shot. As Alistair says, it is hard to find a new angle on this faithful old location!
Great image but plastic deckchairs....plastic deckchairs.........
Dave Carrington: It could only be Blackpool...

That's what is so incongruous about it, everything in the images shouts deck chairs but not... plastic deckchairs. Creative indeed.
