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.
