030/365 No Vacancies

030/365 No Vacancies

The credit crunch is seriously hitting the UK. The pound is extremely weak against the Dollar and the Euro at the moment. Many Brits apparently are choosing not to holiday abroad but to stay at home. The TV news report today showed a group of young people who were holidaying in Dover. This came as a huge surprise to me - mainly because I had taken this picture today. This is prime location, directly opposite the 'marina' - a sorry closed down, boarded up hotel. Not my ideal holiday location.

It does look dismal...and lonely. It seems as though the whole world is suffering the economic flaws/fatality of America. Hopefully, things will change soon.

Lovely image, though I'm wondering about what appears to be a tree portuding from the second story?!?!

Where do you go for holiday?

The tree is exactly that, or a big weed of some kind growing out of the side of the building. I don't know what it is about photography that makes pictures of urban decay so interesting. I must try and take some 'nice' pictures of the town.

We live on the coast and normally take the ferry to France and then drive to the south but not sure what we are doing this year.
