South John Street in Liverpool

Architecture, Black-and-White, Old 11 Apr 07

Yesterday’s shot was taken on top of this. The part below the crane cable is the new Debenhams. South John Street will be a 2 tier shopping lane. You’ll have shops, shops on the next level and then a park above it. The road will be traffic free. It’s hard to really visualise the road. I’ve seen mock-ups and it should look great. In its current state its just a little hard to see the completed version. Maybe in 6 months if I can go on another tour I’ll be able to do that. I can just about remember what this road was before. You would walk over Chavesse Park, down this road and you’d be at the end of town, just by Game. It’s a little different now and its crazy to think that there will be a park above 2 levels of shops. It’s a brilliant use of space.

    Great B/W. I would have personally cropped it a bit more horizontally, to give more of a 16/9, more impact.

    I guess I could have lost some of the ground.

    Liking these images of the Paradise project. Just a quick one – how did you get access? Recently I was commissioned by the Institute of Civil Engineers journal (NCE) to cover this, had letters, and the project managers details / numbers and got no where within the building site. Fortunately there are two car parks where I got some great overhead shots and blagged it at one of the gates.

    Cool location. Love the crisp contrast and tones. Nice composition too.
