I was in Manchester recently, primarily for football, but it would have been rude not to get some Street art photos.
A veteran of Manchester, I knew where to go in terms of finding Street Art.
As soon as I arrived in the City Centre, it was straight to the Northern Quarter, most notably Tibb Street and Stevenson Square.
On Tibb Street, there was a mural of Tony Wilson, which I hadn’t got photos of, so I was glad to see it in person.
It wasn’t the first Tony Wilson related Street Art I have photographed, after capturing a tribute to him which appeared in Belfast after he died in 2007.
The weather when I arrived on Tuesday was wet and dull, so apologies for the picture quality.
It was so wet, I headed to my hotel near Old Trafford and wrote off the rest of Tuesday.
I then used the Wednesday morning to get some more Street Art photos in the City Centre.
Again, the weather was dull, but it wasn’t wet.
I spotted a new piece near Picadilly Station called The Doodle On Ducie Street, on Ducie Street, a collaborative project with Manchester’s homeless community.
That was spotted as I headed towards Ancoats. While heading from Ancoats to Arndale, I spotted a work in progress on Salmon Street of The 1975.
I’ll be back at the end of January for the Burnley match, so i’ll be making sure I get a photo of it.
I’m heading over from Tuesday to Thursday. If the match is a Tuesday, i’ll have Wednesday free, so I might take a day trip somewhere.
York? Sheffield? Liverpool maybe?
If I do go somewhere, i’ll have my camera with me in case I see Street Art.
