A morning shot from MediaCityUK in Salford, which I thought showed an interesting mix of the components of this somewhat bizarre new creation. Old Trafford is just behind me. The offices on the right are the BBC. The building on the left will contain the set of Coronation Street, which is being rebuilt here. There’s some heavy industry in the background, and it’s a nice spot for early-morning rowers. Oh, and you can’t see the cormorant diving under the bridge.
If you combine beech trees, autumn, and evening sunshine, it’s hard to go wrong, but Weds was particularly pretty.
More pictures here.
Today I went go-karting at Rye House. This is something I’ve done before, once, almost exactly a third of a century ago. I remember the year because my older step-brothers had to lie about my age to get me in to the track!
I’ve been karting a few times in the intervening years, but never in weather conditions which were as bad – that is to say, as much fun – as today! I think I’ve been on windsurfing trips which involved less water. We all got completely soaked and had a wonderful time.
Oh, and it made for some nice photos, too!
Many thanks to Ray Gordon for organising the trip.
This is St Mary’s church in Saffron Walden, and I love the contrast of dark and light. Doesn’t it look as if it might be floodlit? But that’s all natural light, on a somewhat overcast day. Larger versions here.
