  1. Museum of Liverpool facade my favourite of this set.

    We photographed Another Place on New Year’s Day 2016. Bloody stupid idea as it was so damn cold, much more sensible to photograph when warm.

    Perhaps we will go back and hire a rowing boat and take photos of the Sculptures from the water when the tide is coming in. Usually, you only see them semi-submerged from the back.

    • It’s a beautiful beautiful building by Danish Architects 3XN. That sounds a good idea for different view of Another place – would be a unique perspective. I found it very hard to convey how many figures there are in a single frame – guess you need to get aerial to show that.

    When do you plan to cover the Fylde Coast? I live at Cleveleys, perhaps we could meet up?

    • Thanks Roy, sounds a good plan. I’m grounded at the moment: torn foot tendon. Doc says I’ll be back to the trail in a month. So if all goes will in August

  4. Brings back great memories of growing up on Merseyside. I was born at home in Formby in 1963, at 4 years old my birthday present was a dog and for the next 7 years that we lived there we went to Formby Beach or Ainsdale every Sunday! There was a red squirrel preserve there and you could take peanuts (we called them monkey nuts back then) and feed them at the fence line of their forest. Good times, simpler times. On the way home we’d get a thruppenny bit pocket money to spend in the sweet shop.
