We Live Here: A Portrait of Liverpool

It feels like ages since I’ve done this. Spent a whole day walking round Liverpool for the sheer love, joy and appreciation of doing it. Visiting some favourite places, seeing some favourite people and, all in all, having one perfect day. With occasional observations. Let’s go. I was with a friend who’s recently come to […]
