Frank, whose fab blog “Dutch Goes the Photo”, has set “Street” as the topic for this week’s Photo Challenge.
Dare I say – this challenge is right up my street (Ha ha!!)
Even though I now live in a small town in Surrey (UK), surrounded by countryside, I’m still a city girl at heart, having been brought up in Manchester. I LOVE buildings and architecture and can walk my little socks off quite happily just treading pavements for hours!! Street art is another fascination of mine so features a fair bit in this post.
Photos included: old fish market building in the Northern Quarter of Central Manchester plus some street art there. The last three photos are of birds painted recently in West Didsbury, a suburb of Manchester, by Brazilian artist Mateus Ballon.
With the recent shocking and tragic news which has shaken Manchester, this post feels particularly poignant. Manchester is a great city, with fabulous people, but sadly others with their own agenda have done the unspeakable and sent shock waves round the world as a result. My heart goes out to all those affected.
