Memories, Dreams & Reflections

This thread will consist of images taken in, and of, the city of Liverpool. Not so much an urban showcase, as a collection of impressions assembled to convey a sense of memory, dream or reflection.

Druidsville Road...
So many amazing pics, Jane!
And many of them could inspire a poem or a story.

Every pic is to be savoured but the bowler hat/lamp is something else...at least for me.

Skymantle: The bowler hat light feature is in the appropriately named 'Hatters Hostel'. I think it is rather cool, too.

Silvia: As with you Silvia, I like to compose and arrange photo boards and stories. For you, in Vienna, the gothic works brilliantly. For me, in Liverpool, there is always a slight feeling of melancholy or Huzun ( as Orhan Pamuk would describe it) which perhaps characterises my 'stories'.

Thanks everyone! I'll post again when I have gathered enough new images to create a board.

Those plant colours are so fresh and vivid; we'll not see any of that for another month here....

Great new thread, Jane, with so many images exceeding your already high standard. My favourite is the one of the boy with the model plane and the Liver bird, a very nostalgic image of boyhood.

The boy with the aeroplane is a memorial to the 1941 Liverpool blitz, in which over 1,700 people died. It sits in the church yard of St Nicholas.

Lovely Jane, the last one in particular has something of pathos imho...can really relate.
