THE CRESCENT, SALFORD 5.20AM I felt panicky this morning, and I wasn’t entirely sure why.

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 […]
