Great shots. 2 of them are going to be very useful to me as an artist and painting many aspects if Liverpool including the prom. The shot looking down past cressington and grassendale parks to Garston with the docks will be used. The shot with the anglers is amazing....Its 40 yrs since I lived in Aigburth and the only fish in the river then were 'Mersey goldfish' !! so encouraging to see it so clean now.

PS Kev, great shots love the refelection of your Son.

Im so sorry Kev as someone suggested I should have asked if you wouldnt mind me extracting some of the prom features for my painting....hope its ok. When Ive done a few paintings I will post up for all to see. Its only certain details I need to know such as the docks at Garston and features across the river which will be used with some artistic license. It saves me a 150 mile drive so much appreciated.

Do you eat the fish you catch?
Love the great shots showing reflections
I am a vegetarian so don't eat fish but was wondering if it was safe to eat!
I did appreciate your recent prom shot looking towards the Garston docks as I took one last June which dosent show the features I need which are so good on yours...my pic attached

There was a field just by where you took those photo's we called it jacks and as lads we had some laughs there. It is built up now and is the signature for the end of the prom . I love that photo Kev
Oh as I was young and easy in the mercy of his means,
Time held me green and dying
Though I sang in my chains like the sea.
When are they going to start work on the old Pleasure Island dome area?
Last time I snuck In there for the Oriental gardens, It twas full of chavs throwing barrels Into the lake and this Is supposed to have security! It's just one guy showing up In his car for a little while then he gets off.

They look more like kids toys to me. I'll have to investigate.At a meeting last night, of the Friends of Otterspool, Nigel Sharp, the Parks Development Officer of the Council, reported that a number of exercise machines had been installed in Otterspool Park. They are on the south side of the Children's Play Area. So now you can give up those expensive gym membership fees and exercise looking over the Mersey. Tell all your pals. Use it, or lose it!

While we all know this is a good idea, how long before some daft idiot tries to sue the council for injuring themselves on one.
They are keep fit thingies - like what you see in a gym. I saw them in the parks in Spain, it's to encourage people to get fit. I've got photos of us using them in a Malaga park ! .. but I'm not showing you ! ha,ha.
... here's 2 small pics .. but I'm not posting the one of me !!
