A shade of ships once moored. by 

Carved out of nature’s form,
reshaped by man’s commercial greed,
feeding the mouths of machine and man,
reborn now under a new face.

On a grey day in Salford near Manchester, this wonderful bridge linking the various sides of the Quay’s and the Lowery, provides a great backdrop to this single rower.

Converted into black and white and best viewed large.

Shot on an Olympus E30.

    How did I miss this when I was last in Manchester ? Brilliant viewpoint and setting.

  • You must make this place a trip H, right up your street, just take the tram and start having fun at the Lowery :)
