Pictures taken in Manchester, Ancoats neighbourhood and Saddleworth Moors, taken with Canon AE-1 and expired film,
Very nice series!
the picture of the derelict shop on radium st offers a social commentary of urban decay in our time.
i like the board by oak properties ‘may sell’ – i think they probably would 🙂

Very nice framing, almost like a painting. Ancoats – one of Manchester’s most interesting places. Wouldn’t have liked to have worked in the mills myself, but would have loved to have seen Ancoats before some very brutal demolition. Still plenty to see, but surely if it hadn’t been demolished, it would have been on par with some of most visited places on the planet. Just look at The Rocks in Sydney – one of Sydney’s most visited places. What Ancoats loses on sun, it certainly more than makes up on history.
