A response to the reflecting prompt, taken at Salford Quays recently
Taken by me using my Sony DSC-H300 camera – using sunset mode and continuous frame.
Had a while to wait for the sun to duck below the clouds, but i’m happy with the end result and the colours in the water and sky.
Anyone wondering about the buoys in the water – this is where the watersports centre do their windsurfing, canoeing and line surfing.
Detroit Bridge, Erie Basin, Salford Quays
My entry for the “Look up” Photo Challenge
Picked it for the Red, White and Blue of the Steels in the bridge – as well as that wonderful blue you get of a Salford City Morning.
Could call it a little abstract on my part – but I like the way it makes shapes out of the morning sky.
Poem that appeared in “Writers Cramp” in 2010, For BASIC
The pigeon is skipping down the lane,
on a Mission.
He’s looking for that bit of fish,
from the open sardine tin,
left by the daytripper
at St Francis’ Basin.
Or the Half Eaten Sandwich,
Left in the bins
By the Designer
at the Outlet by Salford Quays
And passing snow geese can only look on,
as the pigeon hops,
between passing pedestrians,
in their summer regalia.
He doesn’t mind,
He and his friends,
He doesn’t mind
What they drop,
So long as they can have it
