I keep waiting for Liverpool to get some snow so this post is a little more topical but it seems like we’re the only bit of the country destined not to get any, which is a shame!

This photo was taken earlier in the year when we had a fair bit – I decided to go for a walk from where I live to Woolton and back again, about 5 or 6 miles, in heavy snow and ice.  Due to the treachorous nature of the streets, it took me about 5 hours, only falling over the once.

The lady in the shot must have been 80 at the very least and completely put me to shame, bombing past me shopping bag in hand as I was carefully shuffling down the street…it’s one of the reasons I love getting out and taking photos, the people you get to see and chat to along the way always make it worthwhile.
