If ever I need confirmation of the fact that my wife is as tough as nails and I'm just a yellow-bellied wuss, this is the shot I'll return to ;-) Taken today, at the top of Blackpool Tower, it demonstrates that some people can walk across a five foot square of plate glass 380 feet above the ground without batting an eyelid, and others – myself included – can just about manage it, but need a bit of a sit down and a cup of tea afterwards ;-) Anyway, it was a shame the weather was totally crap, as this is the first time we've been up the tower since we moved to Blackpool in the summer of 2004, but I'm definitely going to go back up when the light is a bit better.

On another matter: I was interviewed by Garth Leach from The Daily Shooter the other day, and the interview has just gone online. Thanks Garth.
