  Flickr photo top result in Google in 2 hours

I posted this photo on Flickr at 11.37 this morning. 2 hours later I was wondering what used to be on the site and I remembered reading a blog last year that covered wastelands all over Liverpool (great blog if you can find it). So, I searched for 'wasteland lodge lane' and the first result on Google was my Flickr photo! I've noticed Google indexing blogs quickly recently but I've never noticed this for Flickr before.

  Tate Liverpool fireworks

This firework display at Tate Liverpool earlier in the year was the best I've ever seen. You get some idea of how intense it was from this video the Tate have posted on You Tube.

  Defiance in Madryn Street

Defiance ..., originally uploaded by The Renaissance.

I've been taking a series of photographs in Toxteth recently. I'm really enjoying it and I hope to continue for the next few weeks. This great photo was posted on Flickr today, a house in one of the 'welsh streets', Madryn Street, destined for demolition under the government's notorious new heartlands scheme.

The photo's fantastic, beautifully lit and composed, whilst also documenting a wonderful act of hopeless defiance.

  Product not found: Mathew Street Festival 2007 (and maybe 2008?)
This morning's Daily Post coment (sic) says it all, 'The only explanation is unmitigated incompetence'.

Obviously, the first thing that crossed my mind was how would you react if you were editing one of the promoter's websites? Firstly, I'd add a news story on the front page of my site, both Liverpool08 and Visit Liverpool did this. Secondly, and more importantly, I'd make sure that the existing pages are edited to carry a clear announcement.

Or maybe I'd just delete all information and hope it quietly goes away....

Here's the Visit Liverpool Mathew Street Festival event page:

Visit Liverpool Mathew St Festival

How about a search for Mathew Street on

Liverpool 08 and Mathew Street

OK, the Mathew Street festival website then, (with the great user-friendly homepage page title MSF index!). Click logo to enter and:
