Liverpool. A Visit From A Queen.

There was a Royal visitor to the River Mersey this week, Cunard’s Queen Mary II, currently the largest cruise liner afloat at 79,000 tonnes. Don’t worry I won’t be hitting you over the head with long lists of facts and figures. Just selection of images from the evening. That said the liner has it’s own planetarium for all you seagoing stargazers. The Cunard Line’s connection with Liverpool goes back to […]

Bolton. Fountain Watching On A Warm Evening.

Well here in the UK summer has sort of decided to put in and appearance, the temperatures are certainly on the up, though there is still the occasional rain shower to stop everybody enjoying things too much.

To keep things a little bit fresh I took […]

While its effects around where I live have not been too bad I know that it has caused quite a large amount of flooding, damage to buildings and travel disruption for others. Set against that a few weeks of deathly […]

Scotland. Nine Memories.

My late father was Scots so naturally I have an attachment great affection for the country and have been visiting since forever. It would be impossible/stupid to try and describe all the place has to offer in one post so I’ll just use a selection of nine images chosen from a hard drive that’s bursting at the seams with Scottish imagery. There’s no theme to the choice, apart from all […]
