Blackpool Photos

Like the title says, here’s some pictures from my break in Blackpool.

First, Blackpool Tower and the Comedy Carpet:

Pictures taken of and from Central Pier. We went wandering about in the evenings, and I’m not a particularly brilliant¬†photographer and as much as I like my camera, it is only one for people like me who do this for their own amusement. What I’m getting at is that these photos aren’t very good. But I wanted to put some from the wanders up anyway.

And I’ve saved the zoo photos till last because I feel that pictures taken of beautiful animals will always have something going for them, even if they’re not the best pictures ever (although I am pretty pleased with some of them). It was a sunny day too, so that helped me.

Anyway, animals:

I had no idea there was a second tiger hiding in that bush, so it made me jump when they decided to have a brief scrap.

And that’s it. I feel timewise that I am due a writing post, but I’ve got to do two more picture posts preferably before the end of the month – which I admit, with my timekeeping when it comes to blogging isn’t that likely. But I’ve got the Summer photos post due, and I said I’d do one on my drawing progress every four months and that time has come. And I have actually got got a couple more posts added to the ones I want to do, but I don’t think it’s much of an issue if I delay those ones a little.

Anyway, thanks for looking, I hope my photos were reasonably nice to look through.
