Views of Liverpool

On my recent trip to Liverpool I deliberately avoided anything to do with football or The Beatles – both pull in the tourists, but neither were of interest me on my adventures around the the city.  

Maybe Liverpool should spend more time shouting about its amazing views and stunning architecture and move on from bragging about a band which broke up back in 1970…

What makes for great photos in Liverpool is the mixture of old and new architecture.  Liverpudlians seem uncomfortable with the modernity of some of the buildings…  C’mon Liverpool, it’s time to embrace them!  Both the old and new can exist side-by-side in the beauty of their contrast.

I was lucky with the weather, and the blue skies were a real treat for March.

This is the third of three posts about my recent trip to Liverpool – here you can see the previous posts about Shiverpool and the Cathedrals.
