Manchester revisited: the familiar and the unfamiliar #1

This next two posts are a photo document of my first walk around the city of Manchester after lock-down. From Piccadilly Station, through the Northern Quarter, back through the Piccadilly area.

It was fascinating to walk around an area, that is very familiar to me – to see it through fresh eyes after 6 months away because of the COVID lock-down.

I observed changes, layers stripped away, and new layers being added. The city as an ever-changing organism. The familiar had become unfamiliar.

These images are a record of the patterns and patinas (some new and some old) seen on Friday 4th September 2020.
