"Give Peace A Chance"


Promenading through one of Liverpool's pleasant parks on a perfect autumn afternoon, we were pleased to come across a new sculpture which is to have permanent pride of place. It is a tribute to the late John Lennon, who if still alive would have celebrated his 70th birthday last month. It was created by a 19 year old artist Lauren Voiers who is from the United States. Taking photos was rather problematic because of the sun. I pondered over popping back later but it was already late pm so maybe I will persist and press the click button another day.

Perambulate over to ABC Wednesday now for more pithy pointers on the letter P.


  1. Lennon at 70. Phrases like that remind me that I am not still in my 30's (where my mind thinks I am but my body knows better).
    The sculpture looks quite psychedelic!

  2. Dona nobis pacem. Blogblast for peace is today 4th November. Join us?

  3. It's hard to believe that John Lennon would now be 70. Nice to have a new sculpture as a tribute.

  4. Whowza! Lennon would be 70? I'm impressed that someone so young created this sculpture.

  5. Yeah, on October 9, I wrote in my blog about John. sigh...

    On behalf of the ABC Wednesday team, thank you!

  6. Wonderful pictures. It looks like a dream sculpture.

  7. Oh, If only the world would give life to those words. Dear John . . . what a wonderful dreamer . . . and it is true he was not the only one. Wonderful sculpture! ;>)

  8. Voiers is certainly very talented at age 19. You did well on photographing the sculpture. Have a good weekend.

  9. Wow, I've never seen that, but it's rather lovely, isn't it?
