It shouldn't really be surprising that genuinely cultural events are taking place in the city a year after junket, sorry, that should be culture year. A case in point is a photographic exhibition at St Luke's church on the corner of Berry Street & Leece Street (better known to most of us as "the bombed-out church") throughout August.
"Up to something", an exhibition put together by Liverpool-based photographers, promises "a fresh view of the city and residents of Liverpool" (http://www.fabcollective.com/2009/06/18/were-up-to-something-at-st-lukes/ ).
The pictures above are just two of the many snaps I've taken over the years while ambling around the city centre with nothing better to do. You'll be relieved to know that the quality of the photographs on display at St Luke's will be higher than these.
