A day out in Liverpool

We had to go to Liverpool on February 23rd to pick up a passport, and used the rest of the day photographing buildings around the waterfront and Albert Dock.  The weather was superb and the architecture equally so.  It’s easy to see why Liverpool was awarded the “European Capital of Culture” accolade in 2008. The way in which the older, historic buildings blend with the more modern ones is especially notable.

We had lunch on the Mersey Ferry and walked and walked through the city, returning to the waterfront at the end of the day, when the light was terrific.  A great day out and highly recommended.

The Metropolitan Cathedral, Liverpool, designed by Frederick Gibberd, and built between 1962 and 1967.

Not my usual habitat but it’s always good to try something new. We will be going back again to spend more time photographing the places we missed.  I have put up a small gallery of photos here

    Having been born in Liverpool in the fifties. These pictures brought back many happy memories.
    I forwarded them to my sister who has lived in New Zealand for almost fifty years.
    These marvellous pictures have made a family of ‘ex scousers’ very happy.
    Thank you….
