I’m not normally all that keen on producing nationalistic shots (or, rather, shots that could be construed as nationalistic), but this flag caught my eye. It’s outside the Metropole Hotel in Blackpool (formerly Bailey’s Hotel built in 1785) and this is one of about ten shots – nine of which didn’t work. The others were ok, but it was quite a blustery day and it was difficult to get the flag looking even vaguely flag-like.
On an entirely different tack: I came across a wonderful shot this evening – family portrait 21mm – posted a few days ago on fiftymillimeter. I’ve spent the last ten minutes or so trying to decide what it is I like about this shot, but I can’t really put it into words. It’s definitely worth a look though.
