The Northern Quarter

27 Sep 2015

nq Street 5

Recently, the society arranged a photo shoot in the centre of Manchester. We met at Piccadily and 8 of our members ventured up Tib Street on foot, into The Northern Quarter.

nq Street art 1There we split into smaller groups and spread out around the back streets. There were various areas of interest, some very run down and showing signs of severe wear and tear, others were were very new and shiny. Some parts were streets of bars and restaurants, with a very nice friendly atmosphere.

There were several building worth a revisit in better lighting conditions. Most people were working hand held.

This area is worth a visit, particularly for anyone interested in street photography.

At the end on the evening, the light finally failed and we retired to a bar for refreshments.
