A weekend in Southport

A little bit of everything last weekend in Southport both in terms of the weather, which was cold and also photographically with a bit of street photography, a few sunset photos, a visit to an art gallery and a firework display.

I guess it’s the variety that makes Southport a good destination for a short break at this time of year.  The AtkinsonWhitworth gallery was a great spot to shelter from the rain and enjoy the latest exhibitions.  The costumes of Vivienne Westwood pictured below formed part of an interesting display. I enjoyed the portraits of various celebrities wearing the same t-shirt against a plain grey background. It was interesting to see how they each posed and managed to make the t-shirt their own.

There was also a fabulous art exhibition featuring painting by Nahen Shoa called ‘Black Presence’ which is also worth a visit.

Here are a few photos…
