The is part of a series of photography that records everyday views from my Childhood and my family history in Manchester.
I have started off a new photography project called “Look up” !
It is funny how so few of us look up especially in my home city of Manchester. I am hoping to include some closer views of city locations but also a few locations where there is some space to have a sprawl on the floor to capture some great roof details.
P.S. I thought that this was a great project to start to keep out of the rain : )
A quiet spot just away from the Christmas shoppers of Manchester to Photograph Manchester Cathedral in all it’s glory and maybe the most important time of year. Whilst you are busy shopping for Christmas festivities I hope that you may find time to find your own quiet corner and give thanks for all our blessings.
