The Lowry

By ade_mcfade      
Architecture ain't as popular as Robins or Robin Hood's Bay on here is it?

What the hell - got a few more of the lowry left to convert all you "saturated landscape" junkes!!!!

this is the west facing side of the lowry, a long straight wall with a nice curvey lower part and lots of shutters along the top, makes a fantastic rectangle of light against the dark moody sky over Salford.

The tower thingy is at the entrance of the theatre, not sure whether it's functional or just aesthetic??

Interesting, I've seen plenty of pictures onf the Lowry on Epz, but this must be the first B & W. I think you've done it justice.
