I thought that I’d try a different angle with my photography and use a different location. I chose Manchester and Salford – closely neighbouring Cities only 25 miles or so from my home and I chose to photograph it from the top floor of some of its car parks.
I’ve photographed a couple of cityscapes before – Liverpool and London, 12 miles and 200 miles from home respectively – but never Manchester.
The first car park I chose was the New Bailey one, but when I got to its top deck there was nothing worth photographing, so I drove off to the Manchester AO Arena car park.
I was disappointed again – I’d hoped to be able to capture a shot of some of the tallest skyscrapers that have sprung up over recent years.
A work in progress, but not what I was looking for.
So, I switched cameras to my Fuji X-T4 using a 50-140 mm lens and pointed it down to Manchester Victoria Rail Station below where I had a limited view of Metrolink trams arriving and leaving.
Tomorrow, I’ll post some shots from the third car park I tried – with better luck.
My final shot from the AO Arena car park – a shot of street photography I suppose.
EXIF data were: Fuji X-T4 26 MP mirrorless camera with a 50-140 mm f/2.8 lens mounted.
