Matchstick Model Of Metropolitan Cathedral Taken In Metropolitan Cathedral Liverpool 8/10/19 Created By Arthur Cunliffe

Matchstick Model 
Metropolitan Cathedral 8/10/19 

Created By Arthur Cunliffe 18/11/99

I photographed the Matchstick Model Of the Metropolitan Cathedral in a room on the left as you enter the building.
I found the Model Of the Cathedral an incredibly fully detailed Artistic Masterpiece.
Shown in this album is a full shot of this model, plus a close up and with the words from the Artist Arthur Cunliffe Himself.
By sharing these pictures with you and “tagging”, 
I also wish to raise awareness for Bloodwise. Formerly known as Leukaemia And Lymphoma Research. #Bloodwise_uk #Bloodwise_North #BeatBloodCancer #EndtheDelays.

River Mersey Festival June 2019

International River Mersey Festival 
June 2019

The Mersey River Festival is a fantastic event with many forms of free live Entertainment,
held at The Liverpool Waterfront And The Royal Albert Dock.
I was unable to depict all of the events due to health reasons.

Subject matters photographed included Indian cultural Dance and Music, Irish Sea Shanty’s being sung from a ship, as well as other aspects of song, dance and Street Theatre.  

The events popularity, setting (Liverpool) and venue (The Royal Albert Dock) will raise a lot of awareness for The Charity Bloodwise #Bloodwise_uk, when I “tag” them on social media.

Irish Culture
Kimbers Men Perform Irish Sea Shanties

The River Festival crowds were thoroughly entertained by Kimber’s Men.
They have appeared at Festivals in Ostende, Appingedam, Portmagee, Portsoy, Fano in Denmark, and all over the UK. Featured twice on Sunday brunch for Channel 4 ,they also starred in the BBC2 and BBC4 production of Sea Songs, with Gareth Malone; the latter being the most viewed programme of the year, on BBC 4.

Kimber’s Men possess probably the finest bass singer on the British folk scene today, in John Bromley. John has been singing folk songs since he was sixteen and has sung in several folk bands and is a solo artist. John plays guitar, whistle and bodhran.

Neil Kimber has been performing and singing since the late sixties and has a massive repertoire of songs at his disposal, he plays guitar and is the only real sailor amongst us. Neil and Ros Kimber composed the wonderful song ‘Don’t Take The Heroes’, which is now being sung by many shanty bands all over the world, and describes the aftermath of the Penlee lifeboat disaster.’

Kimber’s men are lucky to have long standing member Gareth Scott. He has a powerful and bluesy voice and is an accomplished guitarist, bringing another dimension to the sound they produce. Not forgetting Steve Smith our recent stowaway, who, as sound engineer and multi-instrumentalist, completes the group with his high harmonies.

British Music Experience 3/4/19

British Music Experience
Cunard Building,
Liverpool, Merseyside, L3 1DS, United Kingdom

Objective/Brief- Raising Awareness For Bloodwise

The British Music Experience provided a lot of opportunities to raise awareness for The  Bloodwise Charity, formerly known as Leukaemia And Lymphoma Research. Liverpool is a popular City, The Cunard Building is of great Historical significance in Liverpool and most importantly using music as a theme will raise a lot of awareness. Peoples lives all have been shaped by an individual soundtrack made from a variety of audio and visual forms, 
because of music.


My restrictions were that I could not use flash, with no tripod and I had to rely on available light, to gain optimum results.   
A wide aperture that allows more light into the camera was used combined with a higher iso number created more sensitivity for each picture taken.
Iso numbers ranged from 400-3200
Noise reduction techniques were used in processing images.

Reflections were reduced at the processing stage, a technique known as “burning in”, was used to make parts of the image darker.
Another technique used known as cloning was applied ie were there was a reflection, the reflection was matched/taken away with a nearby colour or background.

The Camera used was Canon Power Shot G7 Mark II
