I went a bike ride today along the River Irwell past Salford Quays. I’m not going to get very fit riding my bike because I keep stopping to take photos! It was nice though, a strange kind of hazy day. I battled my way back through the city centre which seems to be getting very excited that Christmas is a month away. I was so exhausted I had to buy a German sausage from the markets to keep the energy levels up 🙂 One thing I have noticed about Manchester is wherever you go, there always seems to be a view of the Beetham Tower, so I think whilst I live here I’ll try to capture it from as many places as possible. Here are a few photos.
River Irwell heading out of the City
A random spot on the river completely covered in Graffiti (notice Beetham Tower in the distance)
The same vandalised spot. It was so bright and colourful it actually looked quite nice!
Another view along the river, scribbled in with the aid of Photoshop
Shopping crazy, looking down Exchange Street. Again, the Beetham Tower looming in the distance.
In true geek style, here is the GPS track of the route!
I have a few pictures from London I hope to post soon and have also been working on a new track. Its a bit of a genre-jumper, so its taking a while to put together. I’ve even managed to get some crunching rhythmical guitars from my keyboard.
