Whilst out and about I often point my camera at subjects that don't make it onto postcards or picture album books. Here's a few seedy snaps from the wrong side of the tracks.

Shop front in the incongruously named Flowery Field

More from the Fylde

Blackpool backstreets, shabby chic witout the chic.

One stop shopping?

It surprises me, though I suppose it shouldn't, that a lot of contemporary layouts present a sanitised view of the here and now where well maintained old architecture rubs shoulders with brand new and shiny. Where's the once new, but now past its best with the layers of grot and bodge that accompanies the evolution of a place.
