On this day in 2010…

may3rd2We were enjoying a May Day weekend in Liverpool.  The weather was great, everyone was enjoying the warm spring sunshine and it was a great opportunity for some photography.

We spent much of the time down by the Albert Dock, soaking up the atmosphere and sipping cappuccinos in some of the fashionable eateries and cafe bars.

There is so much to see and do in the dock area, one day is never enough.  And now, of course, there is the new Liverpool Museum as well as the Tate and the Beatles Museums.  Lots of characters to photograph too and the street musicians, as always, provided good photo opportunities.

One of the shots I took was of the Yellow Duckmarine launching itself for a circuit of the dock before setting off on it’s dry land tour of the city.  Who would have guessed that less than three years later one of these amphibious tourist attractions would actually become a yellow submarine with the occupants having to be rescued before it sank to the bottom!
