Manchester

15 Nov 11   To Manchester for a walkabout, then jumped on a tram to Salford Quays for a cappuccino, as you do. Oh, and also
to get some dusk and night shots - I had my tripod with me this time.  Mainly sunny (the weather, not the tripod).

Some of the murals around the Northern Quarter...


Window cleaner.


Trinity Bridge.  Santiago Calatrava, 1995.


The Lowry Hotel and Trinity Bridge.


Some of the locals.


Middlewood Locks.  A newly rebuilt section of the Manchester Bolton and Bury Canal was
to be a central feature of a major development here but the recession hit before it got started.


Castlefield.  'Sheep' by Ted Roocroft, 1986.


Salford Quays.  The MediaCity Bridge reflected in the windows of Quay House.


The sun setting on Quay House.


MediaCityUK at dusk.


On the bridge.


The piazza and Studios.


Imperial War Museum North and the MediaCity bridge.
The underside illumination cycles through several colours.

MediaCityUK and the bridge.


A team were installing coloured floodlighting on the Millennium (Lowry) footbridge.


Trying to get the best angle.  These lights also change colour.
