Out and About Manchester
Just a few pictures that we took today when we were out and about Manchester. Some of them are quite abstract, and it would probably help if we had a decent camera. No matter though, we enjoyed taking them. Some of them surprised us at how glamorous they look – compared to real thing. They say the camera never lies…….but I don’t know so much.
On the side of a house in a small street off Tib Street, we were confronted with a very usual mosaic.
It is made of fragmented tiles, Some of them have Tib Street related memorabilia on, others writing. All are very beautiful and rather incongruous!
The Manchester wheel spinning around in the darkness. A lot of cities have these now, and I do wonder why? The old Manchester Ship canal looks rather glamorous at night. There is a point on these banks where you can look for miles through the bridges.
I couldn’t resist this woven ‘disc’ that I saw on wire between two buildings. No idea why this was, or what linked the buildings apart from the fact that they are apartments. But I was struck by the abstract quality of the scene.
It’s a bit scary walking around the cathedral in the dark. Lots of strange people lurk, so you have to be quick. this is a gargoyle taken from an unusual angle – not one of the strange people!
