I love Blackpool and hate it at the same time. I love and hate it’s weather, it’s tackiness and the people that I see there. But I always love the smells, the atmosphere and the colour, especially at night.
I went to see the Illuminations last night and was reminded that they are Blackpool at it’s best and worst – full of life and colour but effectively one enormous traffic jam interspersed with drunks and people looking for fights.
But for me, it is colour and fun that I most associate with the place, and this photo symbolises that for me.
