Love 9 &10.
You would not believe they were taken in October.
The skies are a lovely clear blue....the blue of summer.
I suppose it is too early to be St Luke's little summer(18th of October).

Re: Today in pictures

We had a trip along the Manchester ship canal last weekend. It was interesting to see the the chemical plants from the 'backside' rather than the 'frontside' which I used see when I was in an out of Shell. ICI. Eastham storage, LTD. and other chemical plants on the side of the canal where I used to go with my road tanker.
It's 30 years since I last went on the trip up the canal and there is a big difference. New plants built. old ones knocked down and some totally obscured by trees and vegetation. The canal is so much cleaner now with plenty of wild life and we saw a lot of Herons and even swans.
The coach took us to Liverpool and was waiting for us at Salford Quays when the ship got there 6 hours after setting sail.

Some lovely shots there Russell.
Love that building in number 3.
It looks like an elegant upmarket hotel, but is the Port of Liverpool building.

Re: Today in pictures

I’ll try to post some more tomorrow or the day after Margaret.
I’ll be busy with the camera again tomorrow. Planned visit to the Terracotta Warriors at Liverpool.

Re: Today in pictures

I went to Liverpool on the August Bank Holiday Saturday, but could not get in to see the Warriors....well, I could have, but would have missed the coach back home....the only slot available was at 5pm
Had a really good day out, thoroughly enjoyed every minute.
Are you going with Moving People?
If you are....they are very good.
Have a great day Russell.

Re: Today in pictures

Yes going with Moving People.
I think our slot to visit the warriors is 11 am. The tickets are included in the price of the trip.
We went to the ship canal cruise with them last Sunday.
Couldn’t fault them. We were picked up at Matalan where they arranged for us to park our cars.
I hadnt been on a coach for far more years than I can remember until Sunday.

Re: Today in pictures

For those of you who missed seeing the Terraccota Warriors at the World Museum Liverpool (Margaret Pilkington) here are a few photographs I took yesterday. There were only 7, I was expecting a lot more.
The event is fully booked right up to the date it is removed.
No flash or tripods were allowed and the crowds made it difficult to get any better shots.

Re: Today in pictures

Russell, crowds or not...you have taken some great shots.
I knew that there were only a few of the terracotta warriors on show....after all you would be reluctant to let such historical artefacts out of your country.
I wonder how much the insurance on them is.
Thank you for letting me see them second hand.
I did toy with the idea of trying to get on the trip....especially as the timed slot was early enough to see them and see more of Liverpool. ( Matthew Street and the Cavern would have been on my agenda).
It looks like you had a great day.

Re: Today in pictures

It was a great day Margaret.
We never left the museum because there was so much else to see on other floors, the Egyptian display for example.
Other people took advantage of half price Liverpool City tour on the open top bus after they’d seen the Warriors.
The weather was ideal for that.

Re: Today in pictures

We spent a long time in the museum....and we did the open top bus too....visited Paddy's Wigwam(left me unimpressed...a bit like a set from countdown)....visited the Anglican cathedral too....and that was as much as we managed.
Which is why I would like to return for another visit.
Will watch out for another coach trip with Moving People.

Re: Today in pictures

I went into Liverpool Anglican Cathedral on a trip from the British Legion Hotel in Southport.
As I was walking round taking photos I came across an elderly couple holding hands seated in an alcove. They were all dressed up in their finery and I discovered they had just renewed their wedding vows after 50 years of marriage.
They were all alone and I offered to take a few photos of them.
They were delighted and luckily they had an email address so I could send them the photos.
I must confess they weren’t the only ones with a tear in their eye.

Re: Today in pictures

I've found the ideal way of going for a long walk in the woods with my partner. Go to Townley Park and borrow a motobility scooter. No i'm not really lazy but due to treatment I'm having I get tired easily. Anyway here are a few photographs I took on Saturday afternoon.
