Last week I went to an old life drawing group I used to belong to in Formby. It was a bright, sunny morning and I took the train and walked through town to the venue only to find the place locked up and looking like it was ready for demolition. Cutting my losses I decided to take a few photos . This is an area next to a big supermarket which is hidden by the trees on the left, but the light was great and the shadows created a liveliness and I thought that it might be worth a paint. I took a few more photos so I might be doing a few more pictures of the town.
When I got home I found out the group had been forced to move and will be resuming in a new venue which is right outside the station next month.
