Wine Tasting is Time Wasting

I walk past a sign every day which advertises “Wine Tasting”.  For some reason I cannot help but read it as “time wasting”, although I’m sure the people inside may think differently.  Inevitably, I walk past and then end up beer tasting instead.  A slight tangent, because this is not the subject of the thread.  I took a Sunday afternoon stroll around Manchester camera in hand and took a few snaps, I didn’t manage to get the epic streetscapes I wanted, but instead a few bits of street art caught my eye.  So here they are.

Snowdon

Here cometh the truth.

Speakers2

iPod and Dr Dre Beats? Pah! You need a proper speaker system (inside Trof)

The Corn Exchange

Looking up towards Selfridges – the blue sky representing the winners of the local derby that day 🙂

This and That

The lunchtime curry canteen I’m assured I have to try (closed!)

Graffiti2

In the quest for research, I had to google “D7606” and it seems its the artist that did this.  Check out their Flickr page HERE fantastic stuff.  Interestingly, the Snowdon picture features on the same page with the “signature” telephone boxes, but on the photo I took yesterday they seem to have been removed!?  Its a conspiracy!

Graffiti1

More street art.

Ramona

Completely out of style with the rest of these, I just wanted a pic of Ramona enjoyed her courgette after their epic day of transportation here.  Fish in a barrel… indeed it was.  Taking pictures of fish is difficult!

Loads to learn on photography – I seem to notice all my mistakes when its too late and I’m back home on the computer, but I’ve hoped to capture a bit of the vibe around here.  Hopefully much more to come.
