I’m sure even the most loyal to the royals out there will have had enough after a weekend of flag waving so I’ll get this over with quick. Personally I avoided just about all of the Jubilee events but there’s not much you can do when the neighbours have organised a party outside your house and on Sunday morning I was putting up party tents and gazebos and I had the most fun I’ve had in the rain since I saw The Who at the Knowsley Hall Music Festival a few years ago. It was Julie from the avenue who set the ball rolling on our event and it was a fantastic proper street party with loads of party games, a dj, karaoke and a midnight finish! Aside from that, I then worked on the Monday night photographing 8 of the 4,000 plus torches that were lit around the country at 10.15pm which was a peaceful affair down at The Pier Head with a few people watching whilst the rest of the country argued over who was best/worst at the Jubilee Concert. Right then, back to normal and today I’m off to shoot portraits at the Cruise Liner Terminal!
Whilst I also blog some of my commercial work and commissions outside of Liverpool on my main portfolio site, Rivercool is dedicated to my work in and around the city and maybe sometimes just a little bit further afield as I work regularly across the region. Rivercool features both photo and video content from past and present and will include other photo news from the city and beyond.
