Primary Colours - Yellow, Red, Blue by 

Outside, the Lowry Centre is metallic and monchromatic. Inside, it is a mind-blowing assault of primary colours. The Lowry Centre is named after local artist L S Lowry, who was famous for his ‘Matchstalk Men and Matchstalk Cats and Dogs’, but was much more versatile and talented than this song gave him credit for. If you get the chance to visit the Lowry Collection at the Lowry Centre, you will see what I mean.

Camera: Canon Powershot SX30 IS with 35X zoom lens, focal length 4.3 – 150.5mm (24mm – 840mm 35mm film equivalent).

    This is a great shot Ian, highlighting all those vibrant colours :-)

  • Thanks for the comment. The complex shapes, as well as the colours, were an attraction.

    Good shot, like the lighting

  • Thanks. Credit for the lighting must go to the architect, the interior designer and whoever decreed that it should be sunny that day.

    Beautiful composition with bright, vivid colors. Well done and Congrats!

  • Thanks you. Outside, this building almost entirely lacks colour (all silver/grey) but has interesting shapes. Inside it still has interesting shapes but also a blaze of colour.

    Beautiful colour and light.

  • Thanks for the comment. I have been away from RB for a while, and must get back into it. Comments like yours certainly help regenerate the enthusiasm.
