    Struck by blue

    Caught the fag-end of the Mersey River Festival tonight and came back with this Mersey sunset in my camera. Struck by so much blue. Take any longshot on any coastline and the land appears a sliver inbetween vastnesses of sea and sky. Even the brashness of this big city skyline diminishes in the blue. The little cruise boats and gigantic tall ships of this festival celebrated a transport mode now eclipsed by air. But it's still the blue that hosts humankind's voyaging. Slogan of Liverpool John Lennon Airport: "Above us only sky." Which is intended to be reassuring, liberating, awe-inspiring. It's good to be tangled up in blue.
