Photos of the 3Queens event celebrating the coming together of Cunards three Queen cruise ships; Queen Mary 2, Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth. Docking for the first time in their spiritual home, Liverpool.
It’s nearly been a year since I last posted anything to this website – where did all the time go?!
Anyway, here is a short but sweet update of some photos from the 2014 Clare House Splash Dash. This is an annual event that raises money for a children’s hospice. The basic premise of the day is that you run around the park and get paint thrown at you by volunteers!
Today myself and the family went off on The Big Egg Hunt, organised by Lindt Chocolatier. Basically, there were hidden 101 and painted eggs around the city which we had to find. Unfortunately we didn’t find them all but I think the final count was around 60. Not bad, even if I do say so myself!
The children enjoyed it and they were frantically running a head to check the shop windows and peeping around corners in a valiant effort to spot the next egg.
Unfortunately I think I’ve made the mistake before of posting directly via Flickr – it just doesn’t work and puts all the pictures in the set into small thumbnails! I’ve posted a few below to give you a taster and hopefully you will want to see more and click on the small thumbnails below which will take you to my flickr site.
The Big Egg Hunt – Liverpool, a set on Flickr.
As a scientist you are always searching for the holy grail that is a permanent position! However, given the way the economy has been over the last 4-5 years finding a job has been most people’s concern, never mind if it is one that you actually want to do. My wife, also a scientist, has been fortunate to have been a part of an international consortium that provided a research position for 5 years. In March 2012 the 1st phase of this program came to an end and to celebrate they held a closing conference and party.
The party was held in the Hard Days Night hotel in Liverpool and I was asked to go along and take some pictures to record the event for posterity. This provided me with a great opportunity to put into practice lots of techniques I have been researching over the last few months – mainly the use of on-camera flash!
Below are a sample of images from the night but more can be found by clicking this link to my Flickr site.
