Balls of Steel, the Big One gets a makeover..
« on: February 13, 2015, 06:03:04 PM »
Seriously you do need balls of steel to do what these lads are doing..

The Big One at Blackpool Pleasure Beach is having a bit of a makeover, well its a repaint to be exact, but if you have ever wondered how they do it, well ropes and pulley's .. :w00t:

I was around the area to photograph something else, so I was completely unaware of the works being carried out, otherwise I would of taken my other lens..

















But.... :thumbup: Local Photographer Mr Roy Thompson was also there, he has kindly allowed Live In Blackpool to display his superb images..  :thumbup1:

Thanks Roy.. :thumbup1:

 









Thank you for reading...
