The New John Lewis


At the Albert Dock end of Liverpool 1 is the new John Lewis Department Store, the second anchor of the retail development, looking impressive in the afternoon sun.

Good lines and colors! I think Mr Lewis should be pleased with you.
Les Auld: Thanks Martin, glad you like it.

Vertical brick laying to boot, Les! How clever!!
Les Auld: Very devious these modern builders Ginnie, thanks for the comment.
My goodness this is a good shooting angle and expresses a more orthodox design cladding than the new John Lewis Store that is nearing completion in Leicester. They are as disimilar in appearance as chalk and cheese ... I'll try and post one fairly soon but it's difficult to get decent a shooting angle as the Leicester building has been shoe-horned into such a cramped position.

Les Auld: Thanks for the comment Richard, the red brick fits in well with the surrounding old redstone warehouses on the dock.

Someone is looking back at you over lunch from that first window. It could also be the band's drummer smile

I think you have controlled the angles in an excellent way. It does leave an optical illusion, like it doesn't matter how I view it the right border seems to lean to the right at the top - weird to see that, while knowing it is an illusion.
Les Auld: Thanks Louis, never noticed the vertical until you mentioned it, well seen.
The modern cathedral!
Les Auld: To the great shopping deity, thanks for the comment Bill.
Great shooting angle Les and I like all the various angles throughout the whole shot.
Les Auld: They do work together well Brian, thanks for the comment.
