scan of a 35mm colour negative from a hacked up old rangefinder camera with a wooden shutter. The quality of the 10×8 paper negs really stands out by comparison.

Glass tower #1

Glass tower #1

A grab shot in Manchester. I liked the reflection of the yellow building in the glass of the tower. Maybe the saturation is a bit surreal but given the perspective distortion of looking straight up, it seems that realism will never be a selling point for this image. An example of the choices that digital processing allows. Possibly I’ve pushed the effect too far? I’m not going to worry because after all, it’s only pixels.

Manchester Arndale Centre

I liked the geometry of the ceiling here, especially with the old fashioned cobbled pavement. This is one of those bits of a city that is constantly full of people but not the type of space that demands your attention.

I am drawn to the design of this tower block it looks fresh and modern, yet it seems to belong where it sits. This is a transitional bit of Manchester between the University, the city and the old terraces. Well I like it.
