The Liverpool Big Wheel (The Echo Wheel of Liverpool) is located on the piazza outside the Liverpool Echo Arena and Convention Centre, close to the Albert Dock in Liverpool, England. Both the Big Wheel and the Liverpool Echo Arena and Convention Centre are partially in this photograph.
What appeals to me about the photograph is the sense of symmetry building and the Big Wheel. I added a graduated filter as the sky was a dull grey.
The big wheel keeps on turning are lyrics taken from the timeless classic song Hymn of The Big Wheel by Massive Attack
An old photo of mine of Galway Cathedral, with a simple filter applied (in Flickr’s built in photo editor). I really have to start using Adobe Lightroom and learn how to make little changes, such as ‘remove’ the light in the bottom-right-corner which is distracting.
Push The Sky Away is the album title of the new album from Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds, to be released in February 2013.
Post title is taken from the song ‘So Far Away’ by Dire Straits.
Please click on the image to view a larger sized version which looks more impressive I think.
Post title; House On The Hill is a song title from Beach House, taken from their great debut album ‘Beach House’.
Three boarded up houses on Bohermore, Galway City. I prefer the black and white photo but posted up the colour version as well, which one do you prefer?
This for me is a good example of finding a photograph in something mundane, a scene most would just walk past and not give it a second glance. Some boarded up houses, not very interesting? But looking and thinking as a photographer it’s a different world. Here I saw a reflection of the economy, a pattern in the houses and like the lines (straight lines rock!).
Post title ‘Won’t Be Back’ is a song title from ‘Recovery’ album by Eminem (Marshall Mathers). I think it fits very nicely to this photo as it portrays a broken home and poverty.
