Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

Following on with my theme of black and white, I am posting a photograph taken at Salford Quays.

This is the footbridge over the quay linking together the Media City Building behind, with the War Museum in front.

This development sits on the banks of the 36 mile long Manchester Ship Canal, built between 1887 and 1894, and one of the industrial wonders of the world – it was audacious, politically controversial and fraught with engineering challenges. To some extent the modern, redevelopment of the site issued similar challenges but is now a hub of activity.

I chose black and white for this photograph as the day was cloudy, had been wet, and was without excellent light, but the clouds were a feature in their own right.

Compositionally, I liked how all lines seemed to be focussing in on the bridge supports, whilst the figures were unaware of this dynamic.

Hope your day is good. We have had snow, hail and rain within an hour but it's still cosy inside the house, Bev :-)
