Yesterday was yet another family birthday – this time for our nine year old daughter – and this shot was taken as we took a spin on the big wheel on Blackpool's Central pier (which can be seen in this shot).

And I do know it's not a particularly great shot, but it was the best I could manage to commemorate the day. I should add that I did take quite a few as we went round on the wheel, but I was somewhat distracted by a) my daughter's enjoyment, b) the height, c) the rustiness of the various bolts that held it all together, and c) the view, which was splendid. And all of those shots were terrible ;-)

Update: Having looked at this one again I don't think it's anywhere near as bad as I first thought ;-)
