I haven't been to the illuminations in so many years! Spending my Saturday night mixing with 3,000 of the Norths finest drinkers and what must have been 40% of the entire engaged population of Lancashire isn't my idea of perfection. Although it wasn't that bad, unlike my photos which were shockingggg! It ain't easy trying to take photos on pavements where you can't stop walking or some burly old man's gonna tell you to "gerr out of the way love!" Ah how I love Blackpool - the home of all things tacky, diamonted and bright. Although having said that I find no issue with taking the hour drive to Blackpool just for hot fresh doughnuts mmmm!
