A walk around Manchester, UK, with a camera #10

Moving from the old section of the John Rylands Research Library to the to newer area by the stairs, I looked up and noticed the balcony above me. I wondered about its purpose in this building.

Also above me was this lovely vaulted ceiling – I used a close-up version of this image for today’s featured photo.

This high ceilinged area leads off to the various floors and research areas – in addition to the older section from which I had just come.

Looking back up the stairs, the old peeps out to the new. The stairs, of course, defer to Covid social-distancing provisions.

I assumed that these tiles served a purely decorative function – less is more.

The very old shakes hands with its younger version.

This where we leave the wonderful, world respected John Rylands Research Library and return to the area of the city that includes the Arndale Shopping area and the Victoria Railway Station. It is also the home of Manchester’s Football Museum. the Arena Plaza and Chetham’s School of Music – the UK’s largest specialist music school.

As I mentioned earlier, today’s featured photo is of the vaulted ceiling above the area between the old and new sections of the Library.

EXIF Data were: I used my Fujifilm X-T4, 26 MP, cropped-sensor, mirrorless camera paired with a Fujinon XF 10-24 mm f/4 lens,. Shutter speed was 1/15 secs @ f/4 and 20.9 mm. ISO was 1600.
