16 Sept 10       'First Street' and Salford Quays.  Bright sun.

I wanted to photograph some new sculptures on the 'First Street' development but they were so new they were
still enveloped in bubble-wrap!  At least I think the wrapping wasn't supposed to be part of the work but who
knows what passes for 'art' these days.  I'll try again later in the hope it's been removed.
There's only one office block on 'First Street' so far but much else is planned.

After this abortive exercise I jumped on a tram to Salford Quays for coffee at the Lowry.
Well, you don't think twice about doing that sort of thing when you've got your free travel pass..!
