Sorry for the long break in communications. Somehow the blog is always the last thing to get my attention.
Well, I’m just back from a short break to Manchester. It’s not somewhere I know well but I’ve visited twice in the last couple of years. Did Salford Quays on the last visit and was in the city centre this time. Both times I’ve been struck by the exciting modern architecture so this time I set off on a mission to capture some of it on camera. To cut a long story short, time was against me and by the time I got out of my hotel I only had about 10 minutes of good light left. Here are the best results mostly taken within the Spinning Fields district.
So what about the architecture that I didn’t manage to take on this trip. Top of the list is the Civil Justice Centre, then there’s the Urbis building, the Hilton, The Avenue when they take the wrappers of it, Chips New Islington, Hulme Arch Bridge, Trinity Bridge, and finally the Corporation Street Bridge. Google image search is a marvelous source of inspiration! Anyway, that’s plenty to occupy several more visits as well as a return visit to Salford Quays. If you’ve got any more suggestions please add a comment.
Now, I should really embark on similar projects closer to home in Newcastle, Sunderland, Middlesbrough and Durham
