What oddly beautiful, sad photos. The grass is literally greener anywhere else!
... Maybe greener grass there would help? A bit of fertilizer maybe? Of course, jobs would help too.

these photos can talk. I can feel the eeriness and emptiness and see
the dereliction and the decadence of this place.
some of the buildings are really nice specially so when they would
have been restored and maintained.
thanks for the surreal tour.

i see what you mean, when comparing Liverpool with Baltimore. Plus the baltimore Ravens, the American Football Team, use purple as their dominant color. Ironically, those "purple" trash cans in those shots fit well with the continued comparison.

BTW, I love the architecture of this building:




Great photos. Thanks for sharing with us.

It was a depressing tour, but a riveting one. Thanks for taking the time to show us what you saw. Are some of the areas a bit unsafe to walk about?

I really like the architecture for the most part. I even like some of the run down stuff like this http://i273.photobucket.com/albums/j...rpool20341.jpg

Thanks a lot for sharing.

Geez, that's just . . . wow. Liverpool looks like something I'd see in a sci-fi movie about WWIII. Your pictures have a sense of war about them. Absolutely great job showcasing this city. Really opened my eyes that there's more to the UK than just the gleaming glass skyscrapers of London.

I dunno, it just seems neglected, dirty, a state of ruin. The vibe I get from these images is that time almost stood still since the Blitz way back when in the 40's.

Interesting although very gritty set of photos. I haven't been to Liverpool for 11 years, but I like the city.

Are there any plans to either demolish or renovate all those abandoned or run down buildings? It's quite sad to see, but it's still not as bad as Detroit.
