Liverpool Street, Salford, dawn

NQl “From Trinity To The Crescent”

It’s been a while since I’ve had chance to return to my personal Not Quite Light project, and it felt great to be back producing pictures for it on Thursday at dawn. I was working down along the banks of the Irwell in Salford. There will be a blog post from the session in the next few days. Whilst I was driving home, the early morning light became sublime so I parked my car and photographed Liverpool Street. Not long […]

COW LANE, SALFORD 3.06AM -4.15AM

COW LANE, SALFORD 3.14AM – 4.15AM The turning point of the year, the Longest Day, had not long ended when I arrived. The much heralded Strawberry Moon was losing its fight with overpowering clouds that, for now, reflected prismatic city lights and lunar brilliance but which, at daybreak, would be revealed as grey and unloved. I settled next to a cement works that hummed and clanked, but revealed no human form, despite there being several illuminated huts. Away in the […]
