In August 2012 I visited the City of Liverpool.
Now, on return, I visited the central dockland area and was so highly impressed with the cityscape I was greeted with that I had to publish an article about it, with photos of course….
I’m guessing that the architects of recent buildings had a common theme in using diagonal lines to lead your eye into the adjacent building which in turn leads your eye into the next, but not before it has upset and punctuated your expectations by having a contrasting leading line or two. Sometimes such a juxtaposition occurs in the same building.
These recent buildings are a relief from buildings of more ornate design from previous eras.
I found all this arresting and fascinating to view and a must for photography to take away for another day.
Of course I took some photos…
My wife Karen and I stayed at the Travelodge Liverpool Central The Strand which is situated right in the middle of my photographic area and I can well recommend it.

PS If you do visit this area of Liverpool, and take some photos, do email them to me and I’ll publish them.
