    One night he left a bit early and by the time I left they had closed the dock gate so I was locked in.
    The only way out was to carry my bike and with one hand swing around the railings to the half tide Princes dock,as the tide was out there was a 40 foot drop if I had fallen.

    This was taken a few years after

    Liverpool Days.. exhibition for 'my own' Scottie Rd people..

    My last exhibition was a great success, it was the most popular apparently of all the exhibitions held at Studio 2 on Parr Street...
    now I've had the offer to put on an exhibition in a venue over the road
    from where I live, my mam would be one proud woman if she saw the way things are going for me lately...
    I'm having to give this one some thought though as displaying up to 40 images is one thing..
    where do they go after the exhibition has finished.. ?.... we'll see...!


    'The kids on the bridge....One hot summer'..
    the best photograph I will ever take.. My... 'Decisive Moment'

    Tomorrow's LRO photos....today ?.... yeahhhh, I'd say so...
    for posterity, like..!



    A view across what was the Clarence Dock power station..

    I imagine the Legoland fans are rather chuffed with themselves today..
    soon that area in the photo will be full of nice big shiny dull skyscrapers...
    My god, the thought of the nice but dim more money than sense brigade that know nothing and couldn't care less about this areas history taking this area over makes me sick...it really does, I'm all for change...but do these fresh faced pimply straight out of uni architect dick heads all use the same manual..?.....does it have to be big, black, shiny and horrible....just a thought..!

    Did I hear 'Mooooooooooreeeeee....' ??







    Liverpools Dockland March 2012.
    Staging at Princes Half Tide Dock
    ..

    I have an original unseen photo of the landing stage in this photo being constructed, complete with workmen on it posing for the photo...
    I've dated the photo to around 1910 as the Liver Building can be seen in the background nearing completion with scaffolding around it and the top not yet built....I came across a lot of old unseen Liverpool photos while on one of my mooches around the old warehouses, I've looked everywhere and can not find these photos, some show some sort of Royal visit to Liverpool..I think it was to open the Georges Dock....I'll be showing these photos on my website when I've done a little more research into them and know excatly what they show... some are obvious, fantastic photos I've never seen before on top of the OH Railway...

    (Inc videos all over what was NEMS....offices, shop floor... basement booths areas..
    have in common ?....apart from me taking the pics.. and making the vids...)


    Shall I tell you what they have in common.. ?
    They are all as valuable to Liverpools/Beatles heritage as any taken 50 years ago..
    Why...?... because they cant be taken again... thats why..
    Now dont all go overboard eh and maybe pass a little congratulations where its due..
    It is Yoliverpool after all...

    The NEMS Epstein office vids and photos...

    I'll throw in as well Vids I've made in Lennons Quarry Bank Classrooms.
    and vids I made on Quarry Bank hall stage the Quarry Men played on..
    what about a vid I made in the tiny bathroom Lennon, McCartney
    and The Quarry Men all crammed into in John's Mums house..
    (The only vid in existence in that bathroom.... thats right, I made it...dont all clap at once...)
    Also a vid I made in his Art College studios.... I'll lob the lot in..

    More contacts made... more people, charities....
    I hope to be involved with taking photos for them....



    The years of walking the streets of Scottie, Granby, Kensington at all hours...
    getting stuck right in the middle of riots..getting told to f'o** by pimps and their girls at midnight on Netherfield Rd...
    all in the cause of trying to learn my art and be a little different in my approach to Liverpool street photography...
    has all been worth it.... every rainy, foggy and snowy mile...


    When this kind of appreciation is shown....

    Comment left by Dr Frank Carlyle, Liverpool Historian extraordinaire....



    The 'Big Night' was a huge success at our wonderful 'Town Hall'. The evening raised over £2000 for 'Autism' and that is the most important thing about the night! There are so many people to thank on here, but I must single out Gerard Fleming for giving up his time to take so many photos of the night. Also, John Lea for providing his wonderful 'Maggie May's' famous 'Scouse'. Thanks lads! And a big special Thank You to all the people who made the effort to turn out! xxxx

    You are fast becoming Liverpool's, most comprehensive, photo journalist.
    Keep up the very, very good work and best wishes G
