The final Fujiholics Liverpool photo-walk of 2017 started off at Liverpool City Centre’s Central Library.
Located opposite St Georges Hall, the Library was rebuilt and reopened in 2013 with a greatly remodelled architecture which is very photogenic within its own right especially the Picton Reading rooms and rooftop access.
Inside the library is a great little cafe where we did a meet and greet over a tea/coffee & scone and also allows for people to have a quick look around the library before we head off on the main walk.
Once outside, Matt Hart gave his usual briefing before we started to head off to St George’s Hall towards Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral which also known by the nicknames ‘the wigwam’, ‘Paddy’s Wigwam’, and ‘The Pope’s Launching Pad’ amongst other names. The Wigwam gave us the opportunity to do out the traditional group shot and for people to go off and explore the Cathedral and the others the chance to grab a tea/coffee and a sandwich.
We headed across the city centre to the ‘Liverpool Anglican Cathedral’ where people could explore the rooftop. The rooftop offers the best 360-degree view of all Liverpool city and allows for great shots. For those that did not want to go up to the roof, the cathedral itself has many places to explore and another chance for tea and cake.
After a regroup, we slowly headed down to the waterfront passing interesting buildings, down past Liverpool one and then around the Albert Dock with its historical buildings, tall ships and quirky old food vans. We stopped by the Museum of Liverpool which has some great photographic spaces within it from the spiral staircase to the huge windows which overlook the Albert Dock and Pier-head towards the three graces and ferry terminal.
For those that wanted to go for food after the walk, we headed to a local pub then made our way to the Baltic Triangle part of the city and dined at The Baltic Social.
As with most photo walks… the day was enjoyable by all those that attended, new friends were made and hopefully, some great photos were taken.
