The seaside football club Blackpool is on the precipice of a second successive relegation due to a team made up of poorly motivated and undermanaged players . But the root cause of the situation goes back to the chairman Karl Oyston and his father who has had his fair share of controversy throughout his life . So now the owners of Blackppol FC, the Oystons, are being put under increasing pressure to leave.

Since their relegation from the premiership , when all was looking so hopeful for the clubs future and the spirits of the Blackpool fans were high , the club and its fans have been left shocked and underwhelmed by the lack of attention and investment to their club . They feel cheated and nauseous towards the Oyston familys disinterested and selfish greed for themselves , money and lack of interest for Blackpool FC’s well being .

For many of Blackpools passionate fans it’s hard to see where the end game can be and it feels like the club will get relegated again next year sliding into oblivion and moving permanently away from any known or credible football presence .

The following photo taken by myself ©Stephenshaw and posted on my Twitter and Facebook feed shows a dramatic moment , captured when thousand of fans marched through Blackpool showing a love and passion for their home club Blackpool Fc , the tragedy of the oyston familys neglect and the fans anger towards them , demanding an end to the current situation . It’s a stunning picture showing the intensity and feeling of the moment with the people demanding that oyston leaves and shouting #oystonout . The fans only hope is a striving for Blackpool to become great once more. The bitter pill of defeat and relegation they have had to swallow tastes even harsher because of being suddenly deprived of football majesty after winning at wembley in 2010 . Blackpool and its fans need a manager that can bring new hope and glory its way again .

Addicted to telling stories .

Even when I’m asleep my brain tells me stories .

Today i got speaking to a drug addict who looked desperate . I find it a shame that people reach these unfortunate states in there lifes due to aspects such as drug abuse in our society that seem so easy to … or should in theory be more simple to solve in our contemporary society . But for which reasons most of us could not even fathom this way of life seems to continue if not even thrive in modern culture . It seems as if money per greed and hyman selfishness allow it to continue for factors deemed more important such as social strata , individual pleasure or if just gets too much for some .

Its similair to a crutch for our deepest nightmares .

This shot was taken whilst on another recce acquiring more material for my new project .

Ive been up since the early hours but its all been worth it as I have had one of those great days where i have accumulated some great material that I’m very satisfied with .  Time now for a cup of kigomo expresso whilst I make a start on a book review with my eyes half shut .

I am also very pleased to have been noticed by American Suburb X . Many Thanks ASX .

Fingered At The Dinmore

I won’t spoil it for you but Ill let you make your own mind up on this one . Insult or re-living a sex act from the past ? Taken whilst on a preliminary recce for a new project documenting a council estate in Blackpool . This is the local pub ” The Dinmore ” with a local resident walking past it on Dinmore Ave . The pub has been closed down for 3 years and even when it was shut down they still , unfortunately , found dead bodies on the premises . Stories galore of which I intend to seek the best .
