Liverpool. Sunset. Docks. Mersey. Ships. Razzle Dazzle Ferry.

Sir Peter Blake dazzled a Mersey Ferry and his design entitled Everybody Razzle Dazzle (2015), it covers the Mersey Ferry Snowdrop with a distinctive pattern in monochrome and colour, transforming the vessel into a moving artwork as it continues its service.
Snowdrop will remain dazzled until it is taken out of service.
Unlike other forms of camouflage, dazzle camouflage works not by concealing but by baffling the eye, making it difficult to estimate a target’s range, speed and direction. Realised in monochrome and colour, each ship’s dazzle pattern was unique in order to avoid making classes of ships instantly recognisable to enemy U-boats and aircraft.

When you walk through a city you are always walking through time as well as space and that’s what I really love about an urban walk.
