Photography Thursday – Three Queens, Liverpool 

My photograph of Queen Mary 2 during the Three Queens event

Over May Bank holiday weekend my local city, Liverpool, helped celebrate Cunard’s 175th Anniversary by playing host to three of Cunard’s cruise Ships; Queen Elizabeth, Queen Victoria and Queen Mary 2.  

This marked the beginning of Liverpool’s One Magnificent City – 7 weeks of cultural celebrations! 

So for this month’s Photography Thursday I wish to share the beautiful work of my fellow Instagramers and the local press!

Moose Coffee: Liverpool

I love a good coffee as much as the next stressed student. When it come with great food and quirky famous pictures with heads replaced with moose, I love it even more. 

  

As a reward for a successful week, my friend and I had a large late lunch in a great cafe called Moose Coffee on Wednesday. 

If you’re ever in Liverpool, head on over to Dale Street for some delicious American Style all day breakfasts with fun moose and State related names, milkshakes and fantastic pancakes along with a great atmosphere and super friendly staff. Perfect!
Wednesday saw my American food baby of scrambled egg with baby chorizo and fresh white toast, an amazing cookie dough milkshake and sharing some maple syrup and ice cream pancakes with my friend too!

Southport Airshow Sights!

On Saturday, my parents and I attended the Southport Airshow, just an hour away from home on the train.  Previously of the RAF, my dad is interested in aviation and I wished to see the Red Arrows with my own eyes.

Weather-wise the day was disappointing, overcast clouds and spots of rain towards the end meant that the finale spectacle of the Vulcan Bomber was unable to fly.  This did nothing to dampen spirits nor stop us eating ice cream.   Despite this, aviation-wise the show did not disappoint.  We saw such wonders as the Huey two blade helicopter, with its distinctive whipping noise; the theme of the Vietnam war, and two almighty Lancaster Bombers from the Battle of Britain.

For me, the highlight was the Red Arrows.  Having only ever seen them in flight on the television, I was surprised by how quiet they were compared with some of the other aeroplanes.   For nine Hawk jet, they are almost silent until they are practically directly above you.  Although the display they chose was apparently less spectacular than it would have been without the cloud cover, they managed to put a huge grin on my face for the rest of the day.  Amazing!

The number of people who turned up to see these awesome Air Force sights was incredible.  With the tide out, the beach was filled with food stalls and mini tank rides (whatever happened to pony rides?) and hundreds of people.  I spotted those in uniform from different regiments of the army and even a squadron from he University of Liverpool.  Very impressive.
