Weekly Photo Challenge: Contrasts

I took this photo a few months ago somewhere in Manchester’s city centre. I love the way it highlights the contrast between technological progress and people’s actual needs. It is great to be able to have a hand-held device that allows us to communicate to people anywhere in the world, browse the internet and store a lot of information. However, we must not forget the simple, most basic things in life, such as face to face conversations. We have all seen a group of people out in public places who are more interested in their phones than the people who are with them.

Dear Progress…

Weekly Photo CHallenge – Extra, Extra

Heaton Park, Manchester

This photo was taken at Heaton Park, Manchester, UK. One may ask where the ‘Extra, Extra’ part is in the picture. The fact is that you cannot directly see it for it is the sun. Yes, the sun. Manchester rarely sees the sun shining in the sky even if it is officially the summer here. Therefore, it is always a pleasant surprise whenever we have bright, sunny, warm days.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Work of Art

I am, and never have been, good at drawing or painting. I drew the one on the extreme left.

This was in the Manchester Art Gallery a few years ago.
