A walk around Manchester, UK, with a camera #11

The John Rylands Research Library was in Deansgate, so I had to pass the Cathedral again on my way to the Arndale and other shopping areas.

Close to the Arndale centre, I noticed some people enjoying a cup of coffee. I’d love to have joined them, but I was on my way to Victoria Railway Station to catch a train home.

While I was photographing the coffee drinkers, I heard a Metrolink tram approaching, so I snapped the photo above, for any of my readers who has never seen a tram.

On my way, my eye was drawn to the above repeating pattern of railings.

Although it was late October, some people seemed happy to sit in the sunshine and pass the time with friends or colleagues – maybe some of them were both colleagues and friends.

As I approached the corner, Victoria Railway Station building came into view with the CIS building looming above in the background.

Here we are in the railway station at last. I’ll wait on Platform Three for my train home.

Well, that concludes our walk around Manchester. Tomorrow, I have a new walk to share with you – around Wigan, Greater Manchester.

My featured image today is of a few shops close to the Arndale Centre – particularly of the Harvey Nichols store across the way from a large branch of Selfridges.

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 1/600 secs @ f/4.5 and 10 mm. ISO was 160.
