Blackpool should have been a good place for photography today – there was the kite show (where I shot SG-Blackpool last year) and an air show – but both were a washout, quite literally. The skies were grey and flat, and by mid-afternoon it was raining. I did take quite a few shots, but none of them are worth posting. Well, there's one, which I'll put up tomorrow, but it has nothing to do with kites or aeroplanes.

Anyway, today's and tomorrow's shots are both HDR's, which, if you're cynical, is shorthand for shot in bad light ;-) Neither are especially stunning, but I like them both for different reasons: this one because it captures the age and history of this wall and gate, and tomorrow's ... well, I'll talk about that one tomorrow.

On a totally different matter: I downloaded the demo version of Flash Professional 8 yesterday evening as I thought I'd be able to use it to generate some pages for my portfolio. What I thought I'd try and do is put together about 20 images that fade from one to the other. I suspected it would probably be quite easy to do, but I really can't work it out. So far, I've managed to place the images on a timeline, but can't get the transitions to work, so if anyone could point me to a dummy's tutorial I'd be very grateful.
