Cool Activities on the Streets of Manchester

16 Aug 2020 11:00AM   Views : 463 Unique : 332

Manchester sometimes offers unforseen facilities and in the hottest weather this free shower system could be one of them. It is situated where Victoria Bus Station used to be, close to the railway arches of Greengate. What it is called now I have no idea. Some things don't change though and I'm sure we all remember in our younger days running happily through jets of cold water from garden hosepipes while everyone else around us swelters in the relentless heat. These pictures are actually from 2013, but clearly it was as hot then as it has been for the past few days.

Meanwhile, elewhere in the city, principally around Piccadilly and Market Street, others went about the day to day business of living.

And so the city rumbles on, endlessly bursting with life, and a superb playground for the reportage/street photographer.

The Pentax and the Butterfly

I always carry my trusty Pentax MX-1, probably the best compact camera that I have ever used. It is staggeringly useful in terms of functions, not too large or heavy and sturdily made. It also has a great lens, the SMC Pentax 8-25mm f/1.8-2.5, comple...

There was a cafe in this building for many years, well loved by local people and run by Frank and his wife. Eventually, of course, Frank retired and the building has been under restoration for some time now. If you look on YouTube one of the urban ex...
