Inviting world or not

D 65

The sculpture “The Emigrants” placed at Albert Dock in the city of Liverpool.
A bronze sculpture made by Mark de Graffenried in 2001.
This statue of a young family commemorates migration from Liverpool to the new world.
It was given to the people of Liverpool by the Mormon Church
as a tribute to the many families from all over Europe
who embarked on a brave and pioneering voyage from Liverpool
one of the largest “gates” in Europe to start a new life in America.
According to the skulptøren so the child who stepping forward at the front
symbolises migration to the unknown world.

With the inspiration from Ailsa and her absolutly worth visting blog
Where’s my backpack.?
this is my 2nd version of the travel theme this week “Inviting“.

Speaking of immigration so today’s biggest problem is our inability to discuss this issue
free of prejudice only with pragmatic objectivity and normally voicings.

Escape from the cityscape

An abandoned hall with coal dust covered floor.

My inspiration comes from wonderful “Restlessjo” and her “Monday walk” themes
Areas like this are perfect for an other kind of inspiring when we walk.

Often we see things like economic crises creates abandoned areas of the cityscape
just as often it is seen that when things turn and development occurs again
to build new next to or somewhere else in the city instead of renovating the old buildings.

What is beautiful and what is ugly, guess it’s a matter of many circumstances.

This is from the Liverpool area, but we meet this kind everywhere worldwide.

Who talked about green environment, the windows or where the windows were, they fit in.

Only the bridge left back, for sure – wonder if we can trust it..?


Cars are a natural part of our environment, sometimes perhaps too natural ..?

D 60 An abandoned mental hospital – if we weren’t already
then we would certainly be insane of being in this environment.

Right under our protective surface lurks the hospitality.

A night at indoor light

Spot on a woman in red, night light indoor (Echo Arena Liverpool)

Weekly photo challenge “Nighttme

Granted I have no compact discs with Kylie Minogue not even long playing records
but I love live music and was lured to a concert yesterday
definitely worth night – definitely she isn’t on the other side of the hill yet.

A ocean of light of changing colors – and not least important magnificent sound.

The desire to observe details can’t be denied and with a thriving imagination too.
So it won’t be less exciting.
Note the black box Kylie has on her back and notice the man with the tall black hat
wondered if he was guiding her movements with those rods, he was very energetic.
If it was – so he steered the famous Moon Walk of Michael Jackson too ..?

Live music (all kind) are being alive.
