The photographer has always known Liverpool to be a city of kind, good natured and funny people. They will laugh with you, at you and at themselves. The Liverbird Building in the background is Liverpools ‘Eifel Tower or Leaning Tower of Pizza’. He decided to try and capture the love and fun he feels for Liverpool by filling the frame with a recently erected fairground ride with the Liver Building in the background. A very different ‘city shot’.
