Laugh, I Nearly ChokedA headline fron the local paper.
Announcing a Spectacular Competition:
The article reads:
We are challenging local amateur photographers to capture the heart of Blanktown....to find an iconic image which truly reflects the beauty of our town and what a fantastic place it is.
What??? This mediocre town, overdeveloped long ago and attempting always to drift towards the lowest common denominator.
High unemployment and lone parent figures.
Many empty shops, offices, and industrial buildings.
Large pubs in a row selling cheap drinks for "Happy Hours"
Not one, but three, variations on the Pound Shop. Far too many betting and charity shops.
Broken windows in the town centre.
Whats to love here? I dont see anything.
