Today’s theme: show us an edge — a straight line, a narrow ridge, a precipice.
Here are some photos taken in Manchester, UK.
The Royal Exchange is one of my favourite landmarks in Manchester. The colours of the interior are beautiful and there’s also a theatre in the round within the building.
My favourite hidden gem is Umbrella Alley. Nobody knows who produced the sculptured umbrellas or why they’re there….maybe they act as a canopy for when it rains in Manchester…?
The best views of Manchester are from Cloud23 Bar on the 23rd floor of Beetham Tower or also known as The Hilton.
Here at Number One First Street, I was taking photos of the sculptures when two security guards pounced on me out of nowhere and asked what I was doing. I actually thought I was in a public place until the guards pointed out a sign to me…NO PHOTOS ALLOWED….haha…
And finally a photo of Merchants Bridge in the area of Castlefield, an original Roman Settlement in Manchester.
Wonderful architectural images, it is so long since I visited Manchester, I do try to get into London occasionally but usually have my kids in tow so cannot get that many photos. I think I need to make the effort and travel up on my own occasionally as I love seeing photos like these, great b&w’s and I love the colours of the lighting in the first one, I can see why you did not convert this one.
Thanks for stopping by and the kind comment…give me a shout out if you’re ever in Manchester. It would be a pleasure to show you around….
