Heaton Park

Before I move completely away from the subject of street art, I just want to focus completely on street art.  Or more accurately, some pictures of mine that have been used in an article on street art on the website “Mancunian Matters”.  Somehow these pics were “spotted” and I was asked if they could be used so I’ve ended up with three pics up there; two from the River Irwell heading out of the city and one of “Ridelow” lurking round the back-streets on the northern quarter.  Good article and other pics.  Here they are: –

After treading through the concrete jungle for several months, we decided it was time to escape to find some green.  A quick tram journey later and we found ourselves at the gates of Heaton Park.  It was great getting out of the bustle of the city centre for a while (especially as now its Christmas everyone has gone completely mental to buy anything and everything).  Here’s just a few pics, some left natural and others modged with Tentacles-style.

Field

Grass, field, few stalks of trees, bit of light shining down on the lot

Squirell-2

A tame squirrel – considering these are all taken on a fixed-focal lens my only method of zooming is moving closer to the subject

Squirell-1

Deeeez Nuts

Why such a long face? (and weird colours you may ask)

Early Morning…..

I emerged from bed on this fine Sunday at 7am and slipped into my best fleece, jumped on my bike and hit the road at 7:30am armed with a slight headache and my camera.  Here’s the results: –

Five-Ways

Cradley Heath High Street with not a car in sight, so i had to go for a retro feel.

Log

Just a log and a tree really, but it must be art when you look at it from a funny angle!

Horse

A distant view of St. Andrews Church in Netherton.  And a horse.

Dragon1

There are some fabulous metal sculptures in Saltwells nature reserve.  This is one of them.

Engine-House

Old engine house close to the Netherton tunnel.

Engine-Wall

The brick wall in the engine house. 

Tree

A modern art tree.  Quite a common sight in Dudley.

I’ve also finally downloaded photos from my phone so have uploaded a few to the GALLERY
