I went out this morning as excited as a grown man could be when faced with the task of following giant puppets around town with a camera, and I’ve come back home 12 hours later just as excited only I’m knackered and I’ve got mild sunburn. When the spider disappeared down the Mersey Tunnel in 2008, I saw people cry because it was leaving but this morning, in an unexpectedly sunny Stanley Park, I saw people cry when the giant girl opened her eyes for the first time before heading out on a journey in search for her deep sea diving uncle and that journey from the Park, through Anfield to Everton Brow was unbelievable and seeing the reaction on people’s faces was as good as the site of a giant girl and her dog on Breck Road on a Friday morning! And then to add to that, I spent the afternoon seeing the Uncle emerging from the Salthouse Dock to wander the city and then later, after a wander around Vauxhall with the big deep sea diver, I headed back into town to to join the giant girl trek again before she finally settled down to bed with her very very funny dog under a big chandelier at the Kings Dock. And that was just day one of a three day journey with a lot more photographs to follow!
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.
