I watched the final day from two vantage points. The first was just by Tesco. Nothing could have prepared me for it all though. When that parade came down the Strand I was almost moved to tears. After I got a few photos I dashed to the roof of the Hilton and nothing could have prepared me for that. There were so many many people. My photos probably only capture half the people that were there. I just know that the entire waterfront was filed with people from the Echo Arena to the Cruise Terminal. It was a massive ending.
I’ll post a collection of my personal highlights from the weekend as soon as I’ve recovered. For now, the final day.
Lost for words. Final day today!
This was Friday. Insane number of people and just the Friday!
The Giants are nearly here! One more sleep and its giant Friday. It’s going to be… a big day… I know. Sorry.
They’re back! The Giants have returned to Liverpool. The Giants first came to Liverpool back in 2012 and it was the highlight of my career. Easily the most incredible event I’ve ever witnessed and photographed. Giants roaming the streets of not only the city centre but also North Liverpool. I loved that it was outside the city centre. The sight of people opening their doors and seeing a 60ft giant walk past was nothing short of amazing. Imagine being able to tell your kids about that!
Today saw the Grandma magically appear inside St Georges Hall asleep in her bed. Talk about your beautiful bedrooms. There were also flash mobs around the city centre. The big event kicks off on Friday morning around St Georges Hall and the Birkenhead Tunnel. More details can be found on the Giants website.
I will of course be out and about with my cameras. I’m on the official team which is nothing short of thrilling and humbling.
