photoblog image Birley Street, Blackpool

Birley Street, Blackpool


A few weeks ago I was intrigued by the structures shown in Martin Jones post of a street in Blackpool, when I went to photograph the Illuminations I walked out of the car park and there was the street in all it's glory so I had to take a picture, it seemed a bit out of this world with the changing colours and rotating lights. Early in the evening of a cold day there was not too many people about.

Last one from Blackpool for this trip, A slideshow of some more images may be found on
my Flickr site.

Wow! Very impressive, Les! The very modern sculpture contrasts greatly with the old bank buildings(? - I can see Natwest but can't tell what building is to its right). Very good DOF seeing the large aperture used.
Les Auld: Processing with Topaz helped quite a bit as well Alan, thanks for the comment.
Fantastic shot Les. Very impressed, nothing like the Blackpool that I remember. Mind you I only had one short holiday there (to see the lights)- and that was about 40 years ago!
Les Auld: I suspect that you would see quite a change if you were to come back Sheila, thanks for the comment.
What a contrast to Martins shot Les, but very good, as is the Flickr selection.
Les Auld: Thanks Brian, glad you liked it.
A wonderful sight..and well captured Les.
Les Auld: It is different Ron, thanks for the comment.
Wow, Wow, Wow, Les looks futuristic,like it a lot !!
Regards Jim
Les Auld: It is a touch out of theis world Jim, thanks for the comment.
super shot Lessmile
Les Auld: Thanks Tim, Glad you liked it.
Plain white light you would expect multi-colours in Blackpool, less they ran out of bulbs. It sure is nice to see a different shot of the same structure you have caught it well. Oh and Thank You for the mention.
Les Auld: There were colour changes Martin, just not as expected though. Thaks for the comment.
Looks like something from another planet. What a great capture and gorgeous tones. (:o)
Les Auld: It does indeed Rosalyn, thanks for the comment.
love the tones on this, it looks like something from outer space.
Les Auld: The colours would change over time Linda, thanks for the comment.
A beautiful image. The bows look fantastic.
Les Auld: Very out of this world Paul, thanks for the comment.
