Nice light.

The Old Blind School, bathed in light, which the blind could never see. I never metaphoto I didn’t like. Nice.

Nice. But I had a strange impression at first. The picture was very slow in loading, and for the longest time it was just a pure black rectangle, and given your title…

Yes. These were among my favourites of the 25 or so I looked at on your Flickr acct.
I’m disappointed that I didn’t get to Liverpool on this whirlwind 24 day trip.

Crooked Timber: I came for the politics and stayed for the photos.

What happened to this school? Why were you there photographing? Just curious… they are beautiful images, and as Alan White said, bathed in a light the blind would never see.

It was being used to house an exhibition as part of the Liverpool Biennial. It has been vacant for a few years, having housed a Trade Union centre and a music venue, The Picket. I think there are plans to turn it into a gastropub or something. The Blind School still exists, I believe, just elsewhere.

Gentle arcs. I like how the floor appears to bulge.
