Shanghai Sunday Morning

Sunday morning in Shanghai comes in different shapes and sizes. Just behind the Nanjing Road, cyclists, street traders and local policemen jostle for space.

While just a ten minute stroll away families and friends were having an altogether more relaxed Sunday morning in the shade.

Generations of young and old mix happily together.

While many of the young use a leisurely Sunday morning to take their technology for a spin, older citizens of Shanghai can often be seen in a more reflective frame of mind.

And everywhere there are children – the future of modern China.

Karama Market, Dubai.

Not often I post shots of myself but here’s one of yours truly taken on a sultry evening in Dubai’s Karama Market.  Nice to be on the other end of the lens for a change.

For comparison.

Hot on the heels of the previous post, here’s a photograph of the same spot in Saltburn. This time with snow. See what you think.

Seacombe Promenade To Egremont – Views Of Liverpool

No puns in my title for this post because I think these views of Liverpool and the River Mersey speak for themselves.

Quite a conventional shot here taken from the base of the Guinea Gap swimming pool. The world famous seafront is changing fast with the addition of some high rise buildings at the western end of the city and the new Museum of Liverpool alongside the Edwardian Port of Liverpool Building.

This next shot – blurred and with fake stains on it – almost looks like it could be from a previous era in the city’s history. I used my favourite Laplication App for this sepia effect.

Finally, I’d walked down towards the beach – yes, a beach in Liverpool! This unusual shot taken from Egremont on the Wirral shore almost makes it look like Liverpool’s built on a lake.

No Ordinary Frosty Butts

Pushed an image that I posted recently through the Laplication App. See what you think.

Borgen Meets Calderstones

Thought that his shot of a piece of land under development near Calderstones Park, Liverpool, was reminiscent of the look and feel of popular Danish tv series, Borgen.

Frosty Butts

Winter is arriving with a vengeance in the UK with a forecast of very heavy snow on Friday. Took the opportunity of a very early walk in Calderstones Park, in Liverpool, this morning and spotted this interesting image. I’m calling it Frosty Butts.

Another Santa

You’ve seen my posts from Crosby Beach before. Today was a chance to walk off the excesses of Christmas Day and Boxing Day. Just when you thought you’d seen all the varieties of Santa that there were to see, along comes this scary looking critter. It’s one of the figures from Anthony Gormley’s work complete with a Santa hat.

Looks more like the Grinch to me. Happy Holidays!

Hanging Around In Shanghai

Not quite sure what possessed me to take this shot. This was my second visit to China and the weather was warm and sultry – very different to my first visit. I was having a lazy stroll through some lilongs on my way to the Shanghai Museum when this leapt out at me. An interesting contrast with the futuristic skyline.
