A Tale of Two City Centres

It might not be what was meant but it’s what’s evolving. Some observations from walking around with a camera. I walk around Liverpool a lot, as you might have noticed. It’s my great joy and my natural way of being. And most of my walks are, or at least begin, as directionless accidents. Seeing where […]

In the City there’s a thousand things I want to say to you
