Little Girl Giant from Overpass – Giant Spectacular Liverpool 2014

Saturday, July 26th, 2014

A tiny gallery of three photos of the Little Girl Giant taken from the flyover in Liverpool after the bus was diverted yesterday. Pictures aren’t perfect as there was lots of reflection on the glass but I like them.

Grandmother in St George’s Hall – Giant Spectacular Liverpool 2014

Thursday, July 24th, 2014

After an unsucessful attempt to visit St George’s Hall on Wednesday lunchtime (the queue was over an hour long) I made an early morning visit today to beat the crowds.

Liverpool Biennial Pigeons

Sunday, August 11th, 2013

I’ve been meaning to get a good panoramic photo of the colourful plastic pigeons on the Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool since they were put up for last years biennial. Finally got round to it today. Click the picture to see a larger version (although not the 25,000 pixel wide original as that was 115MB file). […]

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 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 […]

What is a Sayers Sausage Roll?

Saturday, February 25th, 2012

What is a Sayers Sausage Roll?  I suppose that could be a philosophical question but I’m thinking of things a little more concrete.  A Sayers sausage roll is different things to different people… First Encounters of a Sausage Roll Kind I remember when I was a student describing them as napalm wrapped in crispy cardboard.  […]
