Liverpool One Opens

This is it right here. The moment when the curtains were drawn back on South John Street. I say street but its all pedestrianised. They say its not a shopping centre but an extension of the city centre. Its hard to say really but there is a shopping centre-esque feel to it. The multi-level street for example does remind me of the Trafford Centre. Its a good start though. The opening was big and flashy with dancers, performers and music. Town was quite packed, as if it were Christmas. It was a little surreal though, standing on the middle level of South John Street and looking down the “street”. It was like being inside the marketing photos. I also got to go up on top of the new Hilton Hotel to get some overview photos. Expect HDR goodness in a few days. It was a scary trip up in the tin can elevator that jumps at every stop. Oh and the railing at the top wobbles. But wow what a view. You can see right over Albert Dock, the arena and Wirral. It was almost a perfect day for it too. A little hazy but hopefully the photos are good. So all in all Liverpool One is looking good.

    great shot and wonderfully enhanced. Thanks to Lightroom is my guess.

    Lovely cool blue tone, it makes it seem very futuristic!

    Nice toning + vibrant image; a better image than the opening of a shopping centre deserves!
