Occasional Graffiti – No.9

Colour might just be the perfect antidote to all the snow we’re having at the moment.

And nothing serves up a splash of colour more than graffiti.

These two examples of graffiti are in a skateboard park on Jamaica Street in Liverpool.

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.

Snow on Menlove Avenue, Liverpool

Another of my famous and deliberately blurred shots. Taken on Menlove Avenue, Liverpool,  in the snow about this time last year.

I’d stopped my car after a trip to the supermarket and took this on my iPhone. For the Beatles’ fans among you, John Lennon’s house is about another half mile down the dual carriageway on the right.

Winter Wonderland

It’s Thanksgiving Day in the USA tomorrow. So that means turkey with all the trimmings and pumpkin pie to follow. Not forgetting the first heavy snows of the winter, too. Here in the UK we’d grown used to snow-free winters but all that’s changed recently. I even bought my first pair of Uniqlo long johns last year! This post is a visual celebration of what last winter had to offer.

Here’s Liverpool’s Anglican Cathedral in the twilight, while below are shots of nineteenth century Falkner Square, also in Liverpool.

The Bluecoat Chambers in the city also took on a wintry feel. Now a thriving arts centre, it started life in the early eighteenth century as a charity school.

Meanwhile, out in the suburbs, Calderstones Park really was a winter wonderland.
