Liverpool – Albert Dock

This entry is a repost with added material.

Today I will share with you some photographs from my trip to Liverpool, more specifically the famous Albert Dock.

Albert Dock is a complex of dock buildings and warehouses that was completed in 1846. It enabled ships to be loaded from warehouses directly and was the first structure in Britain built without wood using cast iron, bricks and stone. Today it’s a popular tourist attraction.

The above three pictures appeared previously in my post Wanderlust. This was my participation in now dead WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge. I have now added three more:

Liverpool has some sick museums, seriously. I’ve not been to the Museum of Liverpool that is shown on the last pic, but I have visited the Merseyside Maritime Museum and also World Museum that is near the Lime Street train station. And there is, of course, the Beatles Story, because you can’t mention Liverpool without mentioning the Beatles!

The reason for the repost is that I felt that Albert Dock, or anything Liverpool really, is too good and too big to be hidden under an entry titled “Wanderlust”–when I don’t use that word anywhere else on this blog–and part of a challenge that has long since been killed by WordPress (RIP). It deserves its own properly titled post. So here it is–with three more pics.

I guess it’s like what a music artist would call a remix.

Danube River Devin

River Danube in Devin area near Bratislava, Slovakia. Taken on the same day as the first picture in my State of Mind post. It’s one my favourite photos I’ve ever taken.

If I had a chance to board a spaceship and explore the universe Star Trek-style, I’d do it in a heartbeat. Though I’d be happy to just explore planet Earth a bit.

River Danube in Devin, a village near my home town of Bratislava, Slovakia. The other bank belongs to Austria. I still remember how hot it was on that day, which helps with the freezing weather we’ve been having lately. I think it looks quite peaceful–and what’s better than a peace of mind?

Though my mind is mostly made up of a lot of nonsense and random memories.

Another idea I had for this weekly challenge was the feline mind.

What is a cat thinking indeed? That we will never know, probably. The popular idea seems to be world domination, but to be honest, cats pretty much rule the world anyway. They do what they want and humans feed them and pet them and anything more is just too much hard work. Besides, how are you gonna organise cats?

Other than that…

Game of Thrones is on my mind A LOT, ‘cos I’m such a fan. Scratch that, I’m obsessed with it. As Season 6 approaches, that state intensifies, especially as it’s looking like we’re not getting Winds of Winter anytime soon.

How do you say “all pictures must be taken” in Valyrian?
