When I first started adding images to a blog, back in the summer of 2003, I had no idea about photoblogs, but I soon started to come across them. One of the first I found, and still visit, is Daily Dose of Imagery, Sam Javanrouh's visual diary of Toronto (and occasional trips elsewhere). As best I can tell he's posted an image a day since he started posting on 4th July in 2003 – which is better than I've managed – and I now feel as though I know Toronto, at least partially, despite never having visited.

Anyway, my reason for mentioning Sam is that I often think I should do more to chronicle my own town – Blackpool is a wonderfully diverse environment – and I often choose to photograph the sea, odds things washed up on the beach, and any number of other topics other than the town itself.

So, with a nod to Sam, here's today's offering – the glitzy frontage of the Happy Dayz Arcade in Blackpool, against the backdrop of the seemingly derelict building it inhabits.
