Ferry acroos the Mersey is visible on the right as it approaches the Liver Building topped by the famous Liver Birds. Hope you enjoy the song.

very nice!!

The weather was beautiful for over three weeks, blue sky & sunshine, people wearing shorts & Tshirts. Then the rain came and this is the result. I still enjoyed it.

Szia, Zsuzsi! Yes it was taken through a window, I & the camera would have been soaked otherwise. And yes it has snowed and is still trying to come down. :( Sorry Gerry didn't sing for you. Theolfa

beautifull place!

Theolfa on October 13, 2009

Yes, Roberto, even in the rain it is beautiful! Did you click on the link to hear the song? Theolfa

I did, Theolfa but honestly I didn't like it. It was like a lullaby. Sorry! But your photo is awesome! Fantastic panorama with a beautiful perspective. Also a nice mist in the distant. :)cheers, archrodney!

Theolfa on October 13, 2009

Thanks, Archrodney I'm glad you like it. It is marred by the raindrops on the window, but the view from this restaurant is so good, I hope to go there again next year, DV. Cheers! Theolfa

A wonderfully clear and sharp photo fading into mist in the distance. The raindrops don't become apparent until it is enlarged and at that point add to the overall mood! I daresay a better photo than on a sunny day. Great shot!

Now off to hear the song!

Theolfa on October 14, 2009

Thanks, JF! The song was written and sung by Gerry Marsden for a movie he starred in, named Ferry across the Mersey, and this Utube clip is from the movie. He is famous for the Liverpool Football Club anthem 'You'll never walk alone' played & sung at the start of every home game and sung with gusto at every game.

GO Liverpool!

Once I saw the clip I remembered the song. Now I finally know what it was all about. I was never sure what he was saying in the song when he said Ferry across the Mersey. Amazing the years it takes you to learn some things!

It's a very nostalgic song fo me, having lived there for so many years, but you need to understand the 'scouse accent' to know what he's saying. Theolfa

archrodney on October 14, 2009

I hardly got used to the Dublin accent and I can imagine how different the scouser's accent could be. It's a nightmare that everybody has a different accent. :D Great shot with lots of details! cheers, archrodney!

Theolfa on October 14, 2009

Ta, very much! As they say in Liverpool. Even I can't always understand especially when they speak fast. Glad you like the shot, Archrodney, and there's more to come. Theolfa

Nice weather Theolfa, Liverpool did you proud ;-)

And thanks so much for the Gerry Marsden clip - it takes me back 100s of years :))

Ta luv!!!

Theolfa on October 15, 2009

It's really Manchester weather, Amelia, and it was just passing through, but I managed to grab a few shots while it lasted. As to the song, you & I must be the same vintage ;D Theolfa
