Liverpool Christmas lights #3

Christmas Day at last! May I offer all of the people who view my daily ramblings, my best wishes to you and your loved ones for the remainder of the Christmas season and the New Year.

As you can see from the image above, we are still inside Liverpool One and that reindeer is still getting in everyone’s way.

Oh no! now his girlfriend has turned up to look for him. She looks incandescent with anger.

We’re nearly back to Church Street, where we’ll head for St George’s Hall to look at the Christmas Fayre.

Leaving Church Street and passing Clayton Square arcade, we’ll be turning left any minute now. Just one more road to cross at the end of the street.

Before we reach that road, however, as we cross Williamson Street Square, we can’t help but notice the glorious walk through Christmas tree.

Oh, look! Even as we pass it changes colour.

We’re just behind St George’s Hall now, opposite the Walker Art Gallery. I’d swerved around the market itself – it was packed. Apart from the Covid risk, it would have taken ages to cross it by going through the crowd. The Windmill Bar, pictured above gives a truly continental flavour to the market each year.

I took the photo above, having walked on to Lime Street – my viewpoint here is across the road from the Empire Theatre and Lime Street Railway station. All the time that I stood waiting for it to revolve it moved at a glacial pace letting people get off and on. No chance of a long exposure showing the wheel blur as it turns.

After the Ferris Wheel, I walked across the terrace in front of St George’s Hall to return to the railway station and my train home. On my way, I took the snap above of the Radio City tower. So, at this point, I bid you farewell from Liverpool and repeat my best wishes. I hope that you have enjoyed your Christmas Day.

Today’s photo is another that I made of the Ferris Wheel.

EXIF data were: Fujifilm X-T4 26 MP cropped-sensor mirrorless camera using a Fujinon XF 23 mm f/2.8 lens: Shutter speed 1/2 second @ f/2.8 and 23 mm. ISO 160. Tripod mounted.
