A great composition. Keeping the hordes at bay.
Les Auld: So much so it is a mere shadow if it's former self. Thanks for the comment Louis.

Ever go sea fishing Les? Is the Mersey a nice and clean water way? seems to have quite a rise and fall in tides,nice capture.The sea and ships coming and going,imports and exports to our wonderful island all add up to a fascination that once with you stays for life.
Les Auld: The only time I went sea fishing was when I was nine years old and it was in Cornwall. The Mersey has been cleaned up considerably and there are plenty of fish in there.

Have to agree with you on the fascination Brian, I just have to keep going back to the docks and the Mersey, with camera of course. Thanks for the comment.
Must admit I've never noticed this when I've sailed down the Mersey Les, probably in the bar by then!
Les Auld: Or looking the other way perhaps, thanks for the comment Brian.

Not a part of the world I know very well.. a bit out on a limb unless you're going there specifically. Looks like its been there for many years?
Les Auld: Mid nineteenth century Alan, New Brighton was once a most popular place for people from all around but has suffered much in th elast fifty years, thanks for the comment.
