Tree in Sefton Park, Liverpool

Wednesday, December 22nd, 2010

With sub-zero temperatures all week I’ve not taken my camera out.  So here’s one I made (months) earlier: a simple photograph of a tree in Sefton Park Liverpool.

A Cold Picture for a Cold Day

Wednesday, December 15th, 2010

It’s bitingly cold again today so I decided to post another picture I took last week when Liverpool was foggy and covered in frost. This one is of the thick frost on a section of the chain fences at the Albert Dock.

Albert Dock in the Fog

Wednesday, December 8th, 2010

Sunday night a thick fog descended on Liverpool. By Monday lunchtime it had lifted but I was still able to get some interesting photographs down on the waterfront at Lunchtime. I was surprised how many people were out with their cameras. Normally if I wander down there at lunch time there will be tourists about. […]

Icicles on my Dustbin

MPI Resolution Docked in Liverpool

Tuesday, November 23rd, 2010

I’d gone down to the waterfront to take some photograph today and discovered the MPI Resolution was docked on the Mersey at the cruise liner terminal.  If a ship could ever be described as an impressive piece of kit this one has to be in the running to get that description.  The six towers are […]

Chavasse Park Ride

Wednesday, November 10th, 2010

Over the last few days a giant column has risen from Chavasse Park in Liverpool One. Tonight the ride that goes up it swung into action for the first time. We can just hear the screams from our office. It seemed like a good subject for having a go at some night photography. This is […]

Derelict Building Detail, Duke Street, Liverpool

Thursday, November 4th, 2010

This Wordless Wednesday’s a day late because of the Burke and Hare post. Most of the pictures I post on my blog of Liverpool are of interesting buildings that are reasonably well looked after.  Having lived here for nearly twenty years I’ve seen a lot of miss-representation of the city in the national media.  I’ve […]

The magical Temple of a Thousand Bells

Wednesday, October 27th, 2010

I walked from work to Liverpool’s Anglican cathedral to see Laura Belém’s Temple of a Thousand Bells which is in the Oratory in St James’ Cemetary as part of the Liverpool Biennial 2010. The work consists of a thousand hand-blown glass bells suspended on nylon string through a gently glowing ceiling. An 8 minute polyphonic piece of music by Fernando Rocha including many different bell sounds fills the room. Really beautiful work. I just wish I’d had more than fifteen minutes to experience it.

Every Shop Window is a Soap Box, 2010

Wednesday, October 20th, 2010

Renshaw Street in Liverpool has been the home of Rapid Hardware all the time I’ve lived here. It took up so many of the shops along one side of the street that it was commonly known as Rapid Hardware Street. When they moved into the old George Henry Lee’s / John Lewis building it left […]

Do Ho Suh's Between, Liverpool

Wednesday, October 6th, 2010

Do Ho Suh’s Between is one of the larger pieces in the Liverpool Biennial 2010. Its on a slightly smaller scale to Rotating Yates’s Wine Lodge Building but only just. I’ve seen quite a few similar photographs to the one above on newspaper websites. I decided to take a closer look because the level of […]
