Little Bits of Blackpool – Lensbaby Blog Circle

Welcome to the first of my Lensbaby Blog Circle posts. The blog circle brings together a group of Lensbaby enthusiasts from around the world and each month the members will share a blog post of Lensbaby images that were taken on one day (not the same day for all of us, that would be way too difficult to organise!).  Each post in the circle will end with a link to another member and I’m really excited about the wonderfully diverse range of images that I’m sure we will be seeing.

For my own post I decided to go with my theme of “embracing the blur” and I headed off to Blackpool for my once a year, only in winter, visit. For anyone not from the UK Blackpool is a traditional seaside resort, it’s vibrant and very busy during the summer and a little sad and tired in the winter. Winter always appeals to me much more and I had a wonderful bracing walk up and down the prom with the waves crashing at the side of me. The wind was icy cold and my hair resembled a scarecrow’s when I finished, but it was great to spend some time by the sea capturing little bits of Blackpool with the plastic optic.

The next member of the blog circle is Julie, I have to say that I’m a little jealous of Julie since she managed to visit one of my favourite places for her post! Please click here to see Julie’s Lensbaby pictures of Whitby.

    I love how you captured the feeling of winter in your pictures. It’s my favorite season. Almost ironic that I ended up living in Southern California.

      Thanks Ute! That is rather ironic! I love winter too when we get lovely crisp cold days, but not so much when it’s grey and wet!
