Phew! They are popular!
Bill Phillips: It is breathtaking to see the crowds Ray
Not very amusing this day!
Bill Phillips: It lacks something certainly Elizabeth

What did happen -the Amusements are closed - and nobody has come -the world is not in order!
Bill Phillips: Wet October morning Philine

Where is everybody Bill?? I can't see anyone being amused! Surely the English weather's not responsible??
Bill Phillips: Wet October morning Sally. Only silly sods like me were about
They just let the blue rinse permed lady pensioners in through the door ... and then pull the shutters down until all the pension has been spent.
The social reality of day to day life is being brilliantly projected and exposed by this terrific series ... and is my opinion( which counts for nothing) one of your very best Bill. Don't take any notice of the whimpish fair weather bloggers.
Bill Phillips: Your opinion is much valued by me. (Shaw I ignore)

Yes, as Richard says, a sign of the times?
Bill Phillips: A sign that even an amusement arcade on a cold wet October morning isn't very appealing Ginnie grin

Are we there yet, Bill?
Bill Phillips: I'm afraid we are...well almost.

The notion that this bleak emptiness could in any way contain amusement is amusing...
Bill Phillips: It certainly says something Chris. I have not a clue what though
Great shot Bill... but they don't seem very amused in Bournemouth this time of yeargrin....petersmile
Bill Phillips: I don't say i blame them Peter.
You might soon get a letter from the Bournemouth City council with a cease and desist order. You alone might be blamed for killing their tourism.
Bill Phillips: That would be fun Mary smile
Mary there are signs up all along the south coast telling Bill he is not welcome in their town.
Bill Phillips: Weymouth are quite happy

Yes, I am very amused and have enjoyed the series immensely. But then you knew I would!
Bill Phillips: I hoped you would Mike smile

This is really great Bill, but...and there is always a but with could be even greater if the verticals were actually vertical. I know they often come out like this but there is software in which they can be straightened. I would also like to have included a titchy bit more of the lamp posts on the left. I only really criticise images of people that I have great respect for, and who I know take good photographs. What I am saying here then is, go back and do it again.
Bill Phillips: You are entirely correct. I didn't get around to straightening it. In my defence I didn't want to lose the distortion of the Amusements part of the building. But I will wait for the next really dreadful day in Bournemouth and do it again.
Shot of the series in my book Bill, you have done Blackdog proud! smile
Bill Phillips: Thanks Fred. There are a couple more next week although i had intended to end it here.
No, no, I can't take any more... nothing in Bournemouth could possibly amuse me - especially this. Have mercy, Bill!!!
Bill Phillips: Only two more to go next week can see it through
Indoor 'Amusements' - of course! grin
Bill Phillips: indoors but probably not very amusing Martin
That was when you left.
Bill Phillips: How is the man flu?
The dormant stage in the life cycle of the Bournemouth sea front.
Bill Phillips: Hahahaha very good Janet

Certainly a sign of the times
Bill Phillips: I suppose it is Anne.
Not much fun round here.
Bill Phillips: riotous fun Martin........not
More indoors amusements than outdoor ones Bill!
The perspective is quite impressive.
Bill Phillips: not much of either Richard smile
This place becomes more depressing with every passing picture.
Bill Phillips: Only two more to go Brian and then you can delight in Weymouth with me.

"We are not amused". I was in Bournemouth yesterday evening; it was even darker than this then; not that we went to the beach. Dry and warm, though, teeshirt and shorts weather.
Bill Phillips: Well it would be it was night time when you went Alan
The day after apocalypse, won't it be quiet smile I rather like this lonely shot.
Bill Phillips: It will indeed John. Rather a pleasing prospect in some ways.
Are they taking the p..., or what?
Bill Phillips: You have to feel a bit sorry for them with the summer we have had this year.
Terrible, might not make it home to PP all the pier shots I have got.
Bill Phillips: Sorry to hear that I was hoping to pour scorn on them.

I like the perspective Bill and the B&W makes it look even colder than it probably was! Will you be selling these to the Bournemouth tourist board??!!
Bill Phillips: Unlikely Sarah grin
