I’m celebrating Liverpool’s 800th birthday from the air with my favourite photograph I took on my recent flight over the city in a Dakota.

Jeremy - What that shot doesn't show is the huge building site to the left of the shot where a new one billion pound collection of shops and offices is being built or the new museum down by the docks and other regeneration planned down there. Up toward the top of the picture around where I work is a large building project and others waiting to start. The blue roofed building is a hospital thats a bit over 10 years old. Liverpool has it's areas of history (and some of them are designated as world heritage sites) but all the time I've been here regeneration has been going on and the pace keeps getting faster.

Nothing like a high perspective to help you get a big overview of things, I love flying into a city in applying and looking down and see people scurrying around like little ants seeing the older sections of town along with the newer sections. But being 800 hundred years old it doesn't sound like there's a whole lot of new sections just a lot of history. Happy WW

There was a time, when I first arrived here, that the police vans were always fitted out for a riot and there were armed police patrolling with their weapons clearly visible. There were areas you were warned not to go to if you weren't local. You just don't see that anymore and I'm a lot happier walking round Liverpool day or night than several other cities I know. While the regeneration hasn't been as dramatic as some other cities it is happening and it keeps going.

While events here last week are very sad Liverpool isn't what I would call troubled anymore.

Liverpool seems a bit of a troubled place right now. Best wishes. It's a wonderful image!

"Will you still need me.
Will you still feed me.
When I'm 800 and four!"

Great shot... wow, 800... I don't feel so old anymore. The flight must have been incredible!

Great shot. I was only in Liverpool once (as a Beatles fan it was like a trip to Mecca). Looks cool from the air.

Katya Wednesday, August 29th, 2007

I must be needing to head to bed, as at first glance, I wondered to myself, "what is Liverpool's BOOTH Birthday?" Argh...
