Iconic Waterfronts

I've just been watching the second series of Das Boot, it's about German U boats during the second world war.

While watching a scene set in New York I thought back to my recent holiday to the Big Apple and how I enjoyed seeing the architectural influences of my own city of Liverpool. This obviously didn't come as a great surprise because of the strong historic links between the two great cities but I always find it fascinating when architecture can trick you into believing your somewhere your not.

Anyway, on further inspection of Das Boot, with the tv on pause, I realised that the New York scene was actually being filmed in Liverpool....got me again!!!


I took the two shots below within a couple months of each other.

I just happened to be doing a job across the water in Birkenhead on the front and as I was walking into the venue I noticed the sky over Liverpool with the sun breaking out of the clouds behind me.

I rushed down to the railings and grabbed a couple of shots before the sun went back in behind the clouds.

This shot I'd been looking forward to trying to get for almost twelve months. We, as a family, went over to New York for my daughters eighteenth in December.

Again it was a grab shot as it was a bit of a bun fight to try and get a good position on the ferry but managed to do so and got the shot below.
