A Dock, an Art Gallery: Liverpool

Liverpool’s tourist Mecca:  the Albert Dock.

Tate Liverpool: park your umbrella inside….

Beyond the gallery window: industrial life.

Snow? Shifting perspectives? Infinite space?

Concentric lines, unsettled steps – careful! Zobop!

Jim Lambie: Zobop 1999

Arte Povera: a classical figure commentates.

Water within, water without: a view, a statue.

Beuys/me: two self-portaits in one.

Josef Beuys: Felt suit, 1970.

Time for a smartphone moment: Sue?

And a bike moment:  Sue again?

And a pause for reflection.

Before the rains came…. yet again.

An entry for Six Word Saturday – on Sunday…

    1. It is. And would you believe it’s thanks to Michael Heseltine? Back in the day, the place was in a bad way, and the Council wanted to flatten everything and make it into a giant car park. It must be Liverpool’s biggest money-spinner now.

  1. Really appreciating your ‘through the’ something photographs. It’s one of those aspects of photography that reminds us that the camera and the human eye ‘see’ the world differently. Down by the Albert Docks is looking good these days celebrating culture, but all is not quite as it seems in Liverpool. I know somebody who is the middle of a campaign to stop removal of a popular sculpture. There’s a developer who wants the space to build yet another steel and glass hotel not that far from the Liver Building. http://www.merseysidecivicsociety.org/news/save-the-bucket-fountain

    1. Liverpool has history in not necessarily making the best decisions about its heritage, ancient and modern, as evidenced by the Albert Dock itself. It has some fantastic features: its Central Library is wonderful, but it still has work to do in many areas. Not helped of course by Central Government ….. (petition signed by the way – other blogging friends, please do likewise)

  2. Thanks for the tour, Margaret. I love the reflection shots. I spent a couple of days in Liverpool last year. Definitely not enough time to revisit old haunts let alone anything new!

  3. I’m just lacking the ‘détente’ to lose myself in your stories – I’ll probably (hopefully) be back another time – off to singing again.
