Resurgence

Yesterday I was suprised to find a huge amount of hits on two of my early images, both showcasing 60’s/70’s architecture. I’m still not sure why there is such an interest in these two pictures but I thank you anyway…

Both images were taken in the summer of 2005 with my IPAQ rx3000, hence the lower quality. (1.2 mp).

The University of Manchester’s “MATHS TOWER”, was taken a few months before it’s demolition in 2005. The “LANCASTER SERVICES 1” was taken a year before it was renovated, or certainly repainted in 2006.

Each image is accompanied by a picture from 2006, showing the evolution or destruction of each structure.

Christmas In Manchester 2005

This is a Set was taken back in 2005 with my Vivitar 3765, hence the poorer quality. I like these images as they show a Manchester of change. The first picture is simple and shows Manchester’s Town Hall

Xmas @ Albert Square

The following images are of the first Christmas in the ‘then’ newly refurbished Manchester Arndale Centre. To make the best use of the empty space at the time, they placed this modern display there. Now, four years on, the centre is full of shops and there is little room for such an elaborate display.

This is the Spinningfield site in Manchester. It turns out that it is private land so photography is not permitted… Sorry, a bit late now!
