This time last year I had just arrived back from a job for Conde Nast Traveller in Buenos Aires. I put jet-lag to one side and hit the streets of Liverpool to capture the final day of the Giant Spectacular/Sea Odyssey. And what an incredible day it was! Following and documenting these Giants was truly memorable, but perhaps more so was the faces of the people who lined the streets. Liverpdulians have a reputation for embracing events like these and this was no different. Anyway, enough rambling - here's some photos!
Stepping off the plane from Buenos Aires - I came into Giant Spectacular 'fray' late in the piece - there were already photos from every conceivable street angle posted on the net. Fantastic photography I might add - from local professional photographers, sight-seers... you name it!
So it was nice to be able to hit the Mersey today to bag a few shots as the Giant Spectacular sailed gracefully out of town into the Waterloo sunset (well almost...)
In all - It's been an incredible past couple of days and a real testament to the people of Liverpool for making it happen. These events take months of planning and massive amounts of investment. But when you see the streets lined with excited smiling faces, it all becomes worthwhile.
Liverpool, I salute you.
