SOUTHPORT. Around The Pier in Black & White.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so this time around I’ll go more on the pictures and less on the words. Give you a break from my ramblings for at least one post anyway. This time my time wandering blog takes us back to January of 2020, just before the wheels fell off the world and everything stopped. I live fairly close to the resort town of […]

CHESTER. Under The Underpass.

Every once in a while a scene presents itself to you so completely that it would almost be a criminal act not to take the shot. I had taken myself off to Chester today to get out of the house and grab some fresh air and a change of scene.

I had been in the city to meet up with a friend and after we parted, instead of heading straight back to the station I took a walk around Piccadilly Gardens, Oldham Street, St. Annes Square. After an unpromising start the day had got its glad rags on and […]

ORMSKIRK. Market Day In Mono.

It was a Thursday, the sun was shining high in the sky and I needed to go to the bank, paying bills is always such fun. I had a couple of options, there are two branches near where I live but where’s the fun in parting with money on your own doorstep? Like I said it was Thursday, so that would be market day in Ormskirk, not too far away […]
