Postcard from Manchester
22/52 for the group 2015 Weekly Alphabet Challenge

This week's topic was: V is for Variety

My first thought was to look for something on shelves, an option that several of the other group members had gone for with some great shots of wines and teas and spices. But we had a city micro-break in Manchester earlier this week and I realised that there was a wonderful variety of architecture, ranging from the old warehouses by the canal in the city centre to the ultra-modern buildings of Media City at Salford Quays -- with a Hovis factory and water sports centre thrown in for good measure.

To get everything into one image, I've gone for a postcard type of layout.

That's lovely! I like the way the sky unites all the images, and the range of shapes.

Thanks. It was really interesting re-visiting Manchester as a tourist. I grew up there, but moved away in 1970 to go to university and never really went back.

Very nice! You could sell that as a real postcard.
