So, here's our review of things to do, places to see and wonders to experience if you find yourself in Liverpool with 48 hours to spare.
Here's some of our highlights in photographs, many of which will soon be available as fine art prints or canvases in my lovely Etsy store Philomenas Boutique
The Liver Building, possibly the most famous building in Liverpool, it's said if the birds ever fall then Liverpool will be submerged.
Looby on the Mersey Ferry, some great views from the ferry journey, well worth the admission of around £14 for both of us
The ferry terminal, with the Three Graces in the background.
If you really want the best views of the city you should go up this radio tower, it costs £8 for adults and £5 for concessions but it's worth every penny because at over 400ft high you'll never get views of the city anywhere else quite like it.
The next time I go to Liverpool I want to stay on the yellow submarine, a floating aparthotel, don't fancy the Titanic though ;)
These are all views from the top of the Liverpool Wheel, costs around £15 for 1 adult and 1 child, the ride is 10 minutes and we would have gone on again if we'd had time, possibly on a sunnier clearer day!
The Three Graces with Mann Island in front of them, I really love the architecture of Liverpool, the juxtaposition of the old with the new and quirky is quite amazing, it seems with every build the architects go a step further to create a very interesting and creative landscape, i don't think I saw two buildings which looked the same!
The Super Lambananas Outside of the museum of Liverpool, we also spotted these things in various locations around Liverpool, they're quite bonkers!
I finally got a panoramic with both the anglican cathedral of Liverpool and the Catholic Metropolitan Cathedral which the locals call "Paddys Wigwam"
For any photographers who might be looking in, all of these images were taken with the Fuji X-Prol and the 35mm f1.4 lens, next time when I come back to Liverpool I am bringing a wider lens!
Looby and I had an amazing time and she didn't mind at all that I was there on a photographic mission and I think the plan now is to photograph as much of the country as I possibly can, it's something different and it fills in the time between portrait sessions and weddings and means I get to take photos every day for Philomena's Boutique, it's a great time to be a photographer.
