These are places where photography is usually not a problem, apart from use of tripods and flash which are usually prohibited. There's also plenty of potential for shooting images bot of the architecture as well as the contents. Even "street photography" indoors is a possibility. It's als great for educational trips. We try to take the grandchildren to art galleries in particular, just so we can see just how big and how dramatic some of the painitngs are. Most reasonable sized cities and towns will have a suitable place or two to head for, and in this locality there are some fantastic options. Today's images are from Manchester Art Gallery and also a couple from the John Rylands Library and the Royal Exchange. Cameras are Pentax DSLRs as well as the compact Pentax MX-1 and the Pentax Q system.

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...

Historic Tyldesley - The Technical College

There is a road sign that says "Welcome to Historic Tyldesley" or something similar, and for a while we scratched our heads wondering what excatly was historic about Tyldesley. Well, slap on the hand for us, because there are plenty of things that w...
