As I’ve traversed Liverpool over the last three days, I’ve clocked up around 18 miles. While my main focus was on the major pieces of architecture, I kept my camera handy all the time and captured anything that caught my eye. Liverpool is a wonderful city, full of contrasts. Often, I found classic Georgian architecture living cheek by jowl with more modern structures and I enjoyed trying to capture some of these contrasts.
