Manchester Central Library

I've tried to make an abstract of this beautiful building which is quite majestic inside out.

Walking to work from getting off the bus has more than the one benefit of getting exercise... it gives me the chance to quickly get some photos ☁️

Just waiting for our last minute booking for our flat just off Chorlton Green and  thought I'd take some photos.  This is a rare vintage double egg sofa, you don't see many of these around. It's super comfy for curling up and watching the telly.

People from all walks of life and of all ages added art and writing to these circular boards at the Art Gallery in Manchester. I wrote a piece of poetry and left it on the board too. A really fun thing to do, have to say. Such a great place to visit, and one of my favourite spots in the city.

Manchester’s Museum of Science & Industry - one of the best in the city.
•
It’s been open since 1969 and shows plenty of the significant contributions Manchester has given to the world.

Part of the @msimanchester museum is located on the ground where the world’s first inter-city railway was built 🚂

🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏽‍♂️ if you like street art! I was so glad that during my #collaboration with @visitmanchester & @lovegreatbritain, our group took a tour of the Northern Quarter of Manchester with @skylinermcr aka Hayley Flynn. Perhaps no one else in the city has the type of information or access that she does, gleaned through authentic relationships with artists, hours of exclusive interviews and tracking down elusive ex-residents. Hers are the only tours north of London to feature in the Telegraph's ‘Incredible Tours’ and I believe that wherever you are on the spectrum of appreciating [or not] street art, you will walk away with something learned or felt that you’ve never known before. The quarter’s walls feature a mix of internationally recognized artists and homegrown talent. Flynn also explained & showcased pieces from #CitiesOfHope It’s a convention of artists who use murals [not tagging] to raise awareness of social issues, challenge injustice and champion the voice of the powerless. Their own words on their site echo the drum beat of my heart: “From its beginning, Street Art has championed the oppressed, standing defiant in the face of injustice as the voice of the powerless. Their art echoes in our souls, whispering that hope is not lost, it was never lost.” Just behind me as I stood to take this photo, is one such piece by the female and male partnership @snikarts A woman in red, a timely tribute to Suffragettes and the continuing stand against injustice, everywhere. #BestOfMCR #ItAllStartsInManchester #LoveGreatBritain

Spoon. Spoon. Scoop.
Todays work in progress are almost finished but there's still a few crucial steps in the handmade process.

The scoop is ready for polishing but the spoons need filing and taking down four grades of wet and dry emery paper before I get them to the polishing mop. Then I will hand polish using a variety of mop head and polishing compound until they are super duper extra shiny! 
Spoon, spoon and scoop will be ready and out on display on Saturday in studio 10 @manchestercraft, #northernquarter #manchester and we'll be open 10-5.30pm 😊

One of my favorite moments from our road trip to Snowdonia.✨ It started with the clouds parting over the countryside and driving into the mountains with the windows down.🌞 It ended with exploring, climbing a tower that was built in 1230, and hopping into a tiny teal boat to catch the sunset. 
So many feelings surrounding this trip! I feel over the top lucky to have met and traveled with the most beautiful and brilliant women. @vagabond3 @bontraveler @kirstenalana @jchongstudio @aidamollenkamp I miss you already!! 👯‍♀️ Until next time! ❤️ #collab with @visitmanchester @lovegreatbritain @virginatlantic #itallstartsinmanchester #lovegreatbritain #livefromvirgin

Is a work trip to Stoke really complete if you don’t pop into Manchester for dinner in China Town? I definitely don’t think so.

Spot the seagull 🧐

Waterstone's windows are definitely in need of a good clean!
That said, it's still my favourite place for sanctuary from the rest of the soul sucking Arndale. I love sitting by this window with a coffee and wondering what decaying state this beloved building's interiors are in.... A lot of dead pigeons I imagine!!
But if the owner gave me access to the upper floors, a mask and protective clothing, I would definitely go inside to take photos 🕵️‍♀️

Today I posted on my story some information about the current pop up exhibition in @manchesterarndale that’s been put together by @peopleofthestreets_
•
It’s a project where they gave a number of the city’s homeless community cameras so that they could document what it’s like to live on the streets. Please visit People of the Streets’ profile/website for more information and if you can pop by the exhibition even better!

We've walked past this lovely old advert on the side of a converted apartment block many times & finally decided to do a little research. Dating to the early 19th century, the building, called Junction Works, was originally a Lead works. H.A. Howard & Sons were in business from the 1940's to the 1960's. Gileric Gowns were named after the two sons, Gil and Eric. They were very good quality and can still be bought in vintage shops today. This original advert was rediscovered in 1991 when a modern hoarding was removed at the start of conversion into apartments. The building sits next to Paradise Wharf at the junction of the Rochdale and Ashton canals. Sometimes you can learn some nice stuff on dog walks!
