Twist And Shout
This week’s challenge From Lines to Patterns,
This face is displayed on the reflective external walls of the Liverpool Echo Arena and is part of an exhibition at the arena called “So Close”. It’s an initiative to promote the museums that are close to the arena, by displaying images of items from the collections as “breakouts” on the external walls. This face, which I photographed just this weekend, promotes the International Slavery Museum.
I normally have a little gripe now and again that they don’t make buildings like they used to. I love the beauty, grandeur and robustness of the Three Graces in Liverpool and I was sceptical about the new modern buildings that have been built around these 3 icons. However, I have grown to love the angles and lines of the new additions, especially the Museum of Liverpool and the Beatles Museum. So for my Future Tense, I’m moving with the times, accepting the new architecture and admiring how the new blends with the old. It remains to be seen if the new buildings will be iconic in a couple of hundred years. I’d put a bet on that the Three Graces will still be there standing strong!
