Map It And Tag It Rumble - Liverpool!

Liverpool is a city and metropolitan borough of Merseyside, England along the eastern side of the Mersey Estuary. It was founded as a borough in 1207 and was granted city status in 1880. Liverpool is the fourth largest city in the United Kingdom (third largest in England) and has a population of 435,500, and lies at the centre of the wider Liverpool Urban Area, which has a population of 816,216. And a band called The Beatles came from there - I doubt you've heard of them.

I worked in Liverpool for around 10 weeks at the Crown Court , working at an EEP court room operator, I won’t go into detail or I will bore the pants off you. One of the best things about the job was the lunch breaks, anything up to 3 hours long! This gave me lots of time to explore the area of Liverpool I was in . The court was just off James St , only an 8-min walk from the Albert Dock and a 5-min walk from the centre of Liverpool. So on my lunch time I would go out snapping away !

James St Station (I’d get on and off here every day when I was working in Liverpool)
And a few more shots taken while exploring Liverpool

If you ever get the chance to go to Liverpool, go! It’s a great place to visit and take photos, you could even make a holiday out of it ! Please remember to geo tag your photos!

    Rarely Seen Images of New York Showcased in Duane Michals' 'Empty New York'

    New York City has long been synonymous to skyscrapers, throngs of people both locals and tourists, neon lights, entertainment, and all things loud and hip. It is, after all, a metropolis, a melting pot of cultures - the city that never sleeps. However, back in the 1960s, Duane Michals was able to capture these photographs of a New York that many people has rarely seen.

    Changing Seasons: Durham in Autumn

    Durham is a beautiful but tiny university city in the north of England famous for its amazing cathedral, which is one of Britain's best loved buildings. When I was studying at the university, I loved to go for crisp, autumnal walks around the cathedral and the river, kicking the leaves and basking in the golden glow of the season. The Lomography Redscale film perfectly captures the beauty of this time of year.
