Albert Dock, Liverpool

Posted by
Ian Bramham (Manchester, United Kingdom) on 10 February 2014 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

The Albert Dock in Liverpool was opened in 1846.

At the time, Liverpool was one of the biggest ports in the world and the Albert Dock was at the leading edge of warehouse design.

It was designed from the outset to be fireproof which meant that a hundred years after it's construction it survived the heavy bombing of the city during WWII.

Surreal, this night shot!
Strong lines but maybe a tat less compositionally balanced than usual. I'm using the composition sections of your website to lead me but I find it so difficult :-)
