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

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

Poppies: Weeping Window at St Georges Hall

The Weeping Window is a small scale version of the Poppies that were featured at the Tower of London earlier this year. While it’s on a smaller scale it’s still incredibly beautiful and moving, especially at dusk. The way the colour of the poppies compliments and also contrasts with the stone of St Georges Hall. It’s stunning.

The display is on until 17 January, 2016.
