The atrium at the Health & Safety Executive in Bootle, Merseyside.
A few photos taken during an early morning stroll around Liverpool One. There are loads of interesting things to photograph but I just wasn’t getting the feel for it on this day. I was hoping to catch more reflections of the shop signs in the puddles left by the rain but the dull overcast day seemed to mop up the slightest hint of a cool reflection in the water. I also had this idea of trying to catch the escalator floor pin sharp just as it dropped over the edge and down the slope but once I was there, camera in hand, it just didn’t look like what my mind had pictured earlier that day. Until next time, enjoy these photos…
Taken one summer evening at Liverpool John Lennon Airport
On my way home tonight the sun was just starting to disappear behind the Wirral skyline leaving a brilliant golden colour on the City of Liverpool. I did take some shots of the river Mersey and the Liver Buildings but unfortunately they didn’t come out as well as I’d hoped. I’ve posted them below nonetheless, but they aren’t the best examples of what I can do. However, in my defence I was using my iPhone 3GS to take the shots, and as with most smartphones, the camera starts to fall to pieces in low light!
The following photos were taken in Liverpool during the Tour of Britain 2008. The TdB was eventually won by Frenchman Geoffroy Lequatre riding for French team Agritubel. As cycling has grown in popularity the interest in the TdB has also grown. Although still only a relatively new tour, more and more quality teams and riders are signing up. The 2012 route has not yet been released but already promises to be a fantastic bike race.
More pictures of the TdB 2008 can be found on my flickr site.
