LIMF 2014

Goldie

We didn't get as much time at LIMF as we would have liked, but we did get a couple of afternoons in the park.  Nice work from Goldie on Sunday and a great day on Monday at the Liverpool Legends stage.  Great to see so many people out in the park for what is becoming a must see of the summer calendar in Liverpool.

Canon 5D and 70-200mm lens still seems to deliver.

We Buy White Albums

I love this. More than 1,000 copies of the Beatles' White Album form a pop up shop in the loading bay at Fact. The shop won't sell you anything. It will only buy (a White Album) from you. A kind of anti-shop.

It's an inspired choice of album, not because it's any good, but because over time the uniform white covers have evolved in line with their owners - coffee stains, doodles, foxing and any other number of flaws and patterns. From being all exactly the same on release, each one has become unique.

Robert Smail's Printing Works in Innerleithen.  Nothing was ever thrown out.  All the old presses and guardbooks still survive.

Royal de Luxe

Let Sleeping Giants Lie

So, the Giants returned.  And Liverpool responded in style.  Big style.  I have never seen so many people in Liverpool for any event as there were this weekend.  It was insane but good natured.  It could have got ugly, but it didn't.  There were issues, for sure, with so many people around wanting a look, that's inevitable, but we did get a look.  And what a look it was.  This seemed to me to be a game changer - it was massive - much, much bigger than 2 years ago.  It was hard work, but it was immensely satisfying.  Liverpool's on a roll anyway just now.  It has just punched a very long way above it's weight.

Liverpool's newest car builder has a stand at Mann Island for the International Festival for Business showing off their wares.  Apart from the one they built earlier, they're doing a live build of a brand new car.  Cool to see how it progresses.  I was down there taking a few shots when I was invited in to get closer.  Nice one. Perfect for the fish eye.
