Blistering Round the Biennial

Sunday, October 28th, 2012

It’s very easy when you live somewhere and something is on for several months to miss it.  So today I treated the 2012 Liverpool Biennial like I would a visit to another city.  In four and a bit hours I crammed in trips to the Walker Art Gallery, 28-32 Wood Street, The Bluecoat and the […]

Nik Kershaw at the Liverpool O2

Monday, September 24th, 2012

Went to see Nik Kershaw my favourite 80s synth pop singer/songwriter perform at the O2 in Liverpool last Friday night.  It was an intimate gig which was excellent fun with Nik supported by a full band including guitar, percussion, drums and keyboards. The audience seemed to really enjoy the whole thing.  This wasn’t a crowd […]

Oded Hirsch’s The Lift at Liverpool Biennial 2012

Monday, September 24th, 2012

I’ve passed Oded Hirsch’s The Lift (2012) a few times since the start of this years Biennial. Today I took a few quick shots of it in the rain (see gallery at the bottom of the page). It’s an interesting piece and is attracting a fair amount of attention since it appears in the middle […]

A Place to Call Home

Sunday, September 2nd, 2012

I didn’t make it to see A Place to Call Home: Where We Live and Why when it was in London so I was pleased to discover that it had transferred to Liverpool.  Even better within walking distance of the city centre at the Mann Island Exhibition space and taking about 30 minutes to go […]

Liverpool Downpour Gallery

Tuesday, August 21st, 2012

A sudden dowpour caught me in the Mann Island exhibition space next to the Open Eye gallery at lunch time today. Here are a few of the better pictures I took of the rain and the aftermath on my phone’s camera.

Turner Monet Twomly: Later Paintings

Sunday, August 5th, 2012

  Turner Monet Twomly: Later Paintings at Tate Liverpool is an intriguing mix of the late works work of three artists born in three different centuries.  The works are grouped thematically and each artist’s works are intermingled with each other.  There are some fine pieces by all three artists and if (like me) you don’t […]

Sea Odyssey Day 3

Sunday, April 22nd, 2012

The third and final day of Sea Odyssey in Liverpool today.  I’d planned on having a lie in today but  I found myself there before it started. The weather was terrible with freezing wind coming off the Mersey and rain sheeting down. Despite that got some good pictures of the sleeping pair and once they […]

Sea Odyssey Day 2

Saturday, April 21st, 2012

Rushed round to get my Saturday chores done early then into Liverpool city centre for the second day of the Sea Odyssey. Picked up the Little Girl Giant and her dog as they went along the Strand. Decided to cut across the city centre to further up the route and got a good spot to […]

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 […]
