Ok, so the majority of people shown here are probably not Liverpudlians, and some aren't even human or alive!  Still, I thought it made a change from architecture.

I love the way that dogs are often far more attentive than their owners...

The pigeons were all huddled against the wall in order to avoid the Force 9 which was threatening to blow them to Manchester.

The strange multi-coloured "things" are Lambananas - a mutant hybrid formed when domestic livestock gets too friendly with tropical fruit.  I wonder how much some random Marketing person was paid to come up with that brilliant idea?  They make great props for photography, though, as people love to pose by them.

Reflections on Liverpool

I know it's a bit of a photographic cliché, but the juxtaposition of modern, all-glass, buildings and Victorian splendour results in some very interesting and attractive reflections.

Wasn't it nice of people to leave the occasional window ajar for me?

Liverpool Albert Dock and Quayside

It's three weeks since I posted to this blog, and almost two months since I managed to pick up a camera.  Serves me right for taking on too many things, I suppose, but it's pretty dire all the same.

Continuing the exciting adventures of three intrepid Cambridge Camera Club members in The Wirral and Merseyside, here are a few pictures from a very windy Sunday morning in Liverpool.  This instalment includes images from the renovated Albert Dock and Quayside areas, which looked stunning in the October sunshine.

Out with the old and in with the new.

Domes galore on the waterfront.

Finally the Port Authority building in all its splendour.  This is a panorama of five vertical images, as this was the only way of maintaining perspective and still capturing all the detail.

Coming soon: some Liverpool reflections.
