A quiet corner of John Rylands Library in Manchester.
I have recently seen some great Church photography on the more unusual subject of Church Roofs and could see that I may have been missing out on some more unusual views.
When the rain broke out it gave me a great opportunity to take cover in some of Manchester’s great old buildings, my favourite is John Rylands.
Tripod photography is not allowed unless you are on an organised tour so turned on my camera’s timer and kept a close guard to prevent anyone stepping on my camera. So look up every now and then and admire the view.
False colour infrared photography, this time I have selected the pinky peach tones for the trees. This photograph was taken of a lovely Victorian bandstand in Mesnes Park in Wigan.
Stockport Air Raid Shelters in Cheshire built during the second World War which housed upto 4000 people during an Air Raid. This Tunnel was part of the Sick bay, here there were beds close to medical attention by the Nurses on Duty.
Morcambe Bay on Lancashire’s North West Coast.
Often a spot for fantastic weather and glorious sunsets, photography here always produces some very interesting photographs.

Affetside is a small village on the outskirts of Bury and is situated on the old Roman Road that connected Manchester to Ribchester in Lancashire. In the village you can find the Roman Affetside Cross that is believed to have been a moorland marker for pilgrims travelling to Whalley Abbey.
Old abandoned Blackpool and Farnworth Bus, faded colours that once transported happy holiday makers to our once historic seaside town of Blackpool. “There’s something for everyone at the Worlds Greatest Seaside” Now it takes it place as part of a Rusty Bus Graveyard.
