"The Lowry", Salford Quays, Manchester

Tuesday afternoon I got to spend some time at the Lowry galleries.
I'd been meaning to get there in the truck if I could for a long time.
There's a piece of waste ground across the water from the gallery that
they're calling a "truck Stop". It won't be there much longer, prime real
estate these days. They could build some more premiership footballer's
apartments there.
Seeing some of the more famous L.S.Lowry works was pretty cool but I was
just in awe of this building! I love every corner of the place. I was
wandering around (virtually deserted in there) taking pictures of ceilings,
doors, floors, walls, windows, lighting (they must have thought I was doing
some kind of a recce for a big art-heist).
The colours, textures, materials, shapes, juxtapositions, just fantastic!

I wouldn't fret about that truck parking if I were you, Joker. I hear construction projects in the Grtr M'cr area are being mothballed/ abandoned at one hell of a rate...

You know, on the day that you posted this I received an e-mail inviting me to some event at the Lowry. I deleted it thinking going to Manchester was such a hassle. Now I've seen your photos, perhaps I should reconsider. Terrific series.
