From icy woodland paths and frozen fields to the centre of Manchester, another enjoyable day. Woodbank Park was much larger than I remembered from my teenage-years and now more interesting. We wondered through footpaths and fields not quite sure where we were heading but Roma didn’t care. Eventually we found our way to the main park bit, and I was drawn to the abstract reflections from the old cafe windows, blue sky and the organic Pollock like images from the tree branches.
In the afternoon by direct contrast, we were in the middle of Manchester and this time on our way to see the amazing photographer Martin Parr’s exhibition at the Manchester Princess Gallery. Martin Parr’s photography features everyday people going about their lives in different settings from all walks of life. The exhibition celebrates working class life, inclusion and diversity in Greater Manchester, from the early 1970’s to last year, and is well worth a visit …..I am definitely going back again .
I was totally inspired and ended up buying a cheap 3 lens kit to attach to my smart phone for convenience when not having my Nikon on me. (You never know when you you will see something that inspires you, that’s why I love my mobile phone)
All this Art and inspiration made us hungry so the very tasty Little Aladdin’s was our next stop.This is a great place to eat , totally Vegan, friendly owner,a varied menu and at a good price. My personal favourite are the three curries rice .(72 High St, Manchester near the Northern Quarter)
A spot of shopping,
…and a broken butter dish (thanks James 😉 )
What a great way to spend a Sunday, and City put the icing on the cake by beating Arsenal
