Ships on the Mersey.
An oil tanker on its way to Tranmere oil terminal.
The navy's back! HMS Campbeltown, this time.
HMS Campbeltown was open to the public for the afternoon.
HMS Campbeltown leaving, shot from my balcony. After setting off, she wheeled around and went to salute the Cammell Laird shipyard, where she was built. Alas, a rather hazy day, so the photos are very flat and the more distant ones have been heavily contrast-enhanced.
I'm in Dortmund for the STACS conference. These were taken on the excursion to a nearby colliery museum. Unfortunately, we were there in the evening, so there was little scope for photographs.
The conference dinner, table football in a bar and Dortmund by night, as I was walking home. By the way, the white balance on the dinner shots is fairly accurate. The lighting was crazy-orange and it seemed wrong not to reflect that.
Back home. When it's at just the right angle, the sun refracts through the glass cladding of the building and makes little rainbows.
Admiral Day, dredging what will be the new pier for the Mersey Ferry. Except she packed up and left the instant I showed up with my camera.
Crazy-low tide on the Mersey.
Admiral Day again. Having the devil of a time with a length of steel rope that kept being picked up.
A visit to Tate Liverpool with the 'rents. The weather was really grey so I didn't bother taking any photos outside.
