In the school holidays, every Tuesday, I would get to go with Nan & Grandad to Birkenhead Market. They would get fresh bread, ham, and watercress for sandwiches & for after, EGG CUSTARD TART!!!!!

(This was a great excuse to go out and by an egg custard tart, he,he)


On my trip down memory lane I visited the local shops that were round the corner from Nan & Grandad’s old house.

Couldn’t believe that the bookies still had this window. I know it may sound strange, but I used to love this window, don’t know if it was the colours or just that it reminds me of going to Nan & Grandad’s! And who said 70’s architecture was crap 😉

Fab Faces 2

The Fab Collective were out in force on Saturday taking street portraits to promote our exhibition that will take place in St Luke’s (bombed out church at the top of Bold St, Liverpool) over August.

This was my first time taking street portraits, it was nerve racking at first, asking people if I could take there portrait, but I think it will get easier with practise.

Sadly my Nan passed away a few weeks ago after losing her fight with cancer, along with the cruel disease dementia.

In the past week there has been a lot of reminiscing.  It made me think of all the memories I have and how I don’t want to forget them.  This gave me an excuse for a project…I’m looking forward to the trip down memory lane 😀

So this is were it all started, 25 and a bit years ago.  I know I wouldn’t be able to remember this, but I’ve got to start somewhere 😀
