Switching on the Lights

Christmas carols and mince pies accompanied the switching on of the Christmas tree lights outside Victoria Hall in Saltaire.  A chance to try some outdoor photography for a change. Is it too early for Christmas photos?

This last one I tried out in black and white for Leanne Cole and Laura Macky’s Monochrome Madness. I hope you can still feel the atmosphere despite losing the colourful Christmas lights.

Steps used as paths and seats and also… as steps!!

For Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge 

This was taken in Liverpool at the beginning of the summer, it was lovely and warm and the bright sun in the late afternoon created some lovely shadows.

Just returned from a wonderful two week holiday, I’m looking forward to visiting the “reader” to catch up on everyone’s posts!




Monochrome Madness: week 24

One Park West, Liverpool
One Park West, Liverpool

The One Park West building in Liverpool, designed by architect César Pelli in 2008. It contains apartments, offices and a gym and was awarded the Carbuncle Cup in 2009 for the worst new building in the UK. Personally I think this seems a little unfair, its a very eye-catching building with some interesting lines and from the side it almost looks like a ship going out to sea.

Submitted for Leanne Cole and Laura Macky’s  Monochrome Madness.
