This might very well have never once occurred to you. But say you wanted to get from Wavertree, just by the Mystery, to a meeting in Granby and then to Walton to meet a friend, and you’d decided to walk all the way, how would you do it?
Well as I say, it might never have occurred to you. But if you’ve read this far and now you’re wondering, here’s how, in photographs.
The walking idea came to me when I got up and realised it was going to be perfect July day. Warm and sunny but a bit of a breeze, so not too warm for walking. It would have been a shame not to, and besides, this was about to be my first cross-Liverpool walk since all the lockdowns began.
Where we’re organising things to open again at the next Street Market, in Saturday 7th August. And more often, soon after that.
Then I walked from Granby to Walton.
Then across the top of the city.
And now Walton Road, nearly to where I’m going.
In it’s late days now plans to build a new one down at the docks are moving on, probably.
And good and friendly it is too. We were too busy talking to eat, but if we had there are vegan and vegetarian options, plus lots of cakes.
Time passed, two hours or so of many details conversation. It having been a year or more since we’d last met during a brief lockdowns relief, when Jane had walked over to me. She’s a street photographer so walking is the natural way around the city for her as well.
First though I wanted to photograph the street photographer. Her being mostly always on the other side of a camera. And we decided just outside Goodison Park would be a good and historic place for this.
Thank you for saying yes to the photographs Jane.
A lovely day, back out on so many of the streets of Liverpool after all this time.
