Sea Odyssey Day 1

Friday, April 20th, 2012

Took a late lunch today and went down to the Albert Dock in Liverpool to see the emergence of Uncle which is one of the giant figures performing throughout the city as part of Sea Odyssey this weekend.  Took over 300 photographs in less than 45 minutes and reducing them down to a few to […]

Dark Reflections

Wednesday, May 18th, 2011

I think this is the first time DarkDwarf and I have independantly taken photographs of the same thing for our blogs. Here is a shot of the Port of Liverpool Building reflected in Mann Island Development I took a couple of weeks ago but fell through the cracks of being busy doing other things.  Scarily […]

Accretion

Friday, March 18th, 2011

When I took this picture of buildings all jostling for space with each other on a Liverpool street I was going to just post it as a throw away picture post. However this was one of the views, with its variety of buildings from different eras, that inspired my render Accretion City. So I thought […]

HMS Liverpool

Thursday, March 3rd, 2011

Dark Dwarf posted quite a few pictures of HMS Liverpool on her last visit to the city on his blog: The Leaving of HMS Liverpool HMS Liverpool I just thought I’d post one of the ones I took last Sunday morning too.

North John Street Ventilation Station Horse Head

Wednesday, February 23rd, 2011

On the opposite side of North John Street from the Royal Insurance Building is one of the ventilation shafts for the Mersey Road Tunnel. It’s not as grand an affair as the Georges Dock Ventilation Tower and Central Station with its statues and other decoration but it does merit Grade II listing. It’s quite a […]

Lennon European Peace Monument

Wednesday, February 16th, 2011

I don’t usually photograph the Beatles attractions around the city but the Lennon European Peace Monument was catching the sun as I was looking for a vantage point in Chavasse Park to photograph the Royal Insurance Building’s golden dome from last week.

Royal Insurance Building Dome Liverpool

Tuesday, February 8th, 2011

The golden dome on the Royal Insurance Building in Dale Street stands out on Liverpool’s skyline. 34m (110ft) above Street level is the highest point on the Grade II* listed building started in 1897 and finished in 1903. Sadly J Francis Doyle’s Edwardian Baroque building has been derelict for most of my time in Liverpool.

The Bluecoat Liverpool

Thursday, January 20th, 2011

Today was the first day this year I’ve taken my camera for a wander round Liverpool at lunch time.  I’d originally taken it in because there was some really atmospheric mist when I got up in the morning and I was hoping it would still be around later.  By lunch it had all burnt off.  […]

Photo Galleries

Wednesday, January 12th, 2011

Last night I added a page for some Vue stuff from my blog to make it easier to find. Tonight I’ve pulled some of my photographs together into galleries in my pictures section so they’re not lost in a sea of over a thousand posts.

With the cold weather here’s another photograph from earlier in the year… a different view of Liverpool Resurgent over the entrance to the former Lewis’s Department Store.
