The cruise ship Balmoral visited Liverpool last week. Its somewhere in between the old liner style and the new style. HMS Illustrious is in this weekend. Open to the public on Saturday, 10-4 (maybe 5). Well worth seeing but the queue was pretty insane with Ark Royal so you’ll be queuing for a while. Leaves Sunday at 2ish. Not sure if theres going to be helicopters flying around like Ark Royal. It would be awesome to see the harriers fly around but I can’t see that happening.
Pretty hectic weekend really with all that, and pavement art on Bold St and a photocall on Sunday and trying to write chapter 3 of the hdr guide book. I spent Friday afternoon in Salford photographing the bridges, in portrait. Tricky stuff but I’m happy with what I got. The place has changed a lot in the past 2 years and hints at what Liverpool docks may look like in 5 years if Peel’s plan goes ahead.
