The birds

The last few migrating birds are leaving the city ahead of the coming of winter. They are indulging themselves in their traditional flocking dance. Happy Skywatch!

Recycled art

Sculptures by Alfredo Longo made from aluminium cans, exposed in the Ancienne Halle aux Viandes de Liège. I normally dislike art with a message but these are actually quite nice.

Mediacité from the sky

The newest shopping centre in Liège was designed and built in the form of a snake. You can just about guess its snake-like form from this aerial photo.

Cité Administrative from the sky

An aerial photo of the city centre. The prominent tower is the Cité Administrative, something like a Town Hall. Not only is it the ugliest building in the city, it's also a bureaucratic hell on earth. The red building just behind it is the Curtius Museum and the church with the twin towers is St Bartholomew's. On the bottom left you can see the corner of the Palais des Princes Eveques and the Place Saint Lambert.
