New York Diary Day 7

A rainy day in NYC. We went for a wander to Soho and the Leica store where I bought a copy of the official Leica mag which featured an interview with Sarah Lee and her work in LA which was great. There was also an exhibition of work in Cuba that was stunning. After that we went shopping because it was really quite cold in the rain. We tried to get into one of those trendy bakeries but the queues were really absurd. I didn’t fancy spending an hour or two of my time in NYC waiting for a doughnut.

Ghost Ship in Liverpool’s Royal Albert Dock

Commissioned as part of the Tall Ships festival, Ghost Ship is a rather beautiful and clever piece of art by Mihai Baba. You can’t see it unless you stand directly opposite it and when you do a ghostly vision of a ship floats in the dock. It’s very cool and reminds me of the computer interface thing in SeaQuest DSV.

Museum of the Moon at Liverpool Cathedral

I first saw Museum of the Moon a couple of years ago in Kendal as part of Lakes Alive. It was breathtaking. A scale version of the moon inside a church. Why? Why not. It uses accurate NASA imagery so it’s sort of the closest you’ll get to the moon without going there. You walk around it. You sit under it. It doesn’t require explanation or over thinking. It’s just the moon floating in a beautiful space.

So I was delighted to hear it was coming to Liverpool and to the Anglican Cathedral. Read More

New York Diary Day 6

We wake up to this incredible view from our hotel window. I told Hampton Hotel I was a photographer and they gave us a great view. It never failed to disappoint. Though I’m not sure what the buildings are in the photo, other than One World Trade Centre.

We had a bit more of a chilled out day planned. A trip to Prospect Park in Brooklyn, Dumbo and then One World Trade Centre.

Light Night

As always Light Night, an event run by a small team of amazing women, is the highlight of the year. It’s like 24hrs of incredible events squished into 6 hours. I spent most of Saturday resting after my 10km walk around the city with all my camera gear. I wouldn’t change a thing. As one of the official photographers I get to see a wide range of events. I saw music in the Picton Reading Room. Dancing in the Town Hall. Fire dancers on the steps of St Georges Hall. After all that excitement I got to relax at the Anglican Cathedral with a mesmerising light show.

This was my evening. Well done to the team for putting on such a great show.Read More
