Liverpool Town Hall Revamp 2023

Liverpool Town Hall

A selection of images depicting Liverpool's Town Hall, I took between 2008 - 2018 featuring both interior and exterior details. Liverpool Tourisim topics are very popular, I have used these images to raise awareness for Blood Cancer UK 

Photographing Liverpool Town Hall is "walking through history and culture".

Liverpool ONE Opening 29/5/2008 (2023 revamped)

Liverpool ONE Opening Day 29/5/2008

Opening Day Speeches by dignitaries including Steve Rotheram, Lord Mayor Of Liverpool (left) 

Dancers, aerial acrobatics, clowns, stilt walkers and a variety of entertainment delighted the crowds on the Liverpool ONE opening day 29/5/2008.

The reason for producing two images of the same photograph below is because I wanted to emphasize the height of the stilt walker by including other elements that were smaller, in the second image I have cloned/created my own plain background without distraction.

It was a popular event providing me with the perfect opportunity to raise awareness for Blood Cancer Uk

Liverpool's African Festival aka Oye

Liverpool’s African Festival was photographed in 2008, Liverpool’s Year As European Capital Of Culture. The festival was an “Explosion” of music and vibrant colours,
In 2023 I “revamped” these images, by darkening the background to make the colourfull African clothes worn by the performers stand out further.

The event is very popular providing me with the ideal opportunity to raise awareness for Blood Cancer UK

The emotion and charisma of the performers was perfection
