We begin with Detroit Bridge and Salford Quays…wait a mo, i hear my readers cry…That’s Not a P word!….let me continue and i’ll explain
Upto the late 80s and 90s with the areas redevelopment the area the picture above was known as the Port of Manchester….as shipping landed goods up and down the waterway.
The area around the docks has been given a spruce up and theres plenty of Green space and Parkland, where they could put it.
The landing point for sailing boats and narrowboats is popular for birdwatchers as various different birds frequent the waters.
We may not get anything as colourful as this Parrot visiting the neighborhood, but we do get a fair portion of regular birds, such as seagulls, sparrows, starlings, bluebirds and not forgetting, Pigeons.
ever get one of those days when nothing goes right ?
Thursday evening – and i’m going through the snaps i took with the D3100 the other day.
Now take a look, this is how my dear computer judges what my camera thinks my outside lawn looks like. It could be it was fooled by the Manchester weather, and in its defence it was throwing down stairrods when i took the pic. But then again, i have been confined to the house the last few days – thanks to a bug i picked up (don’t worry – the cold remedy has worked)
Now before it throws another strop – here’s evidence for the prosecution – it worked perfectly well when i was doing my black and white shots in the kitchen.
and it liked the pics of the spoons
It even liked the black and white shot i took of the Coffee, Sugar and Tea Jugs
So i’m starting to think – my poor old camera has caught a cold (sic)
Or that the gremlin that lives on my computer (hereby known as the update wizard) has attacked my computers ability to work out colour!
Come up with up with photographs with two Ms in the title
OK Cee, I’ll do me best!
To start with here’s a couple of Museums photographed in the area where i live….
Most of these were taken #Midsummer – so theres another word with more than 1 M
The Fusiliers Museum in Bury holds not only the Regimental Collection but is home to the Cenotaph for the town, and in regards to the regiment the County – in Memoriam
Manchester Museum is located by the Victoria University of Manchester on Oxford road, and is known primarily for its Archeological and Historical Artifacts. In fact, there’s a special exhibit that greets you at the entrance – his name is Rex.
As part of the artifacts, you will come across the Egyptology exhibits – The Victoria Museum is known for its Mummies
One of these artefacts actually came down the road from Salford and is still known as the Salford Mummy to this day, so its nice to pay her a visit!
Salford Museum is the Home of Lark Hill Place, a Victorian Street that shows how people lived during that time – there’s the old cobbles and washing lines, and you’ll hear the sounds of the Grocers, the Blacksmith and the chemists
And how can i forget the foundation stone on which this blog was made.?…(Ha Ha)
My second home (well, i volunteer here enough to call it home! 🙂 )
