Today is the last day to see and enjoy the Snowflake Trail in Liverpool...

It's not just incredibly gorgeous artistic pieces of snowflake glory... it's snowflake multimedia heaven too! It's that good that I took my 4 year old round - after downloading the iphone app - and making it all come to life!

If you get the chance - don't miss the opportunity to see this fantastic art installment in Liverpool City Centre. Here's some marketing photos I nabbed for Open Culture - the event organisers...

A stage, set in the middle of the Three Graces, overlooking the Mersey River as the sun sets. Makes for a magical event, and makes photography all the more easier!

Walking off to War - A Photo from the Lord Mayor's Pageant, Liverpool 2010

This was one of the last photos I took on the day of the Lord Mayor's Pageant. The whole scenario of the military marching down the middle of Castle Street had a certain 'wartime' feel to it. Help for Heroes is one of the Lord Mayor's charities and is a very relevant organisation in today's UK.As I was walking back to the car I photographed an old rusty roller door (as you do...) and then blended both images together, stripped back the colour to give a grungy war-torn feel to the image. This is in stark contrast to the rest of the images taken that day - they were filled with vibrant colour. I will post a few of the colourful ones when I get a spare mo!
