Sorry for the leave of absence but I’ve not been taking many photos I like enough to share. I keep blaming the light/weather but it’s probably down to using my phone rather than my camera. Whilst I try to find some creative inspiration here’s a shot of a colourful corner in the Northern Quarter. If you want to find out more about the mysterious man above the street sign or the odd little Aqua Emporium to the left then check out issue two of my alternative city guide. It’s available on my site (theskyliner.org). How have you been? Discover any nice little corners of Manchester lately?
So this was the first stop of my England tour and also my first time visiting Manchester ✈️ I walked around the streets and saw so many things within only a few hours. I‘ve had lunch on a bench in front of a beautiful church, saw a girl with the voice of an angel playing her songs in the middle of the city, visited the People‘s History Museum to take a look at a stunning exhibition, had a pretty good beer in a very comfortable basement bar and ate a heavenly good burger in a restaurant that has too many stairs. I have to admit that I probably fell in love with #Manchester and especially the #manchesternorthernquarter ❤️ This was definitely not my last time coming here 🙏🏼
Sun sun sun ☀️ Too much sun earlier to operate normal instagram service. No building facts today as a result but instead have this lovely section of Tib Street (named after the river Tib which flows beneath the street - oh go on, one fact then. You can also see the iron curbs on this shot. Manchester is one of the few cities in the world to have these and they reinforced the paving from very heavy loads such as carts full of cotton). I checked out @justbetweenfriendscoffee earlier and it was mwah 👌 The huge window facing the rear is awesome and really makes the whole place feel light and spacious despite being a tiny wee place.
