Another poem by inky
Salford (via Llandudno) , 11th January 2018
I like the pebble beach at Llandudno.
each of those stones, has their own tale to tell
time taken over millions of years to form,
then broken up and shaped over another stretch of time
to create the many shapes that come together as a flat bed by the Irish Sea
great for skimming on the surface – if you can find just the right round ones
some of the cast are smooth to the touch and shiny as a button
but a word of caution – wear your shoes – some of these are sharp!
I like taking perspective shots with my camera, taking different views of things
Here’s a few of my personal favourites
Silves church, algarve , looking up
Caldera hotel, San Rafael, algarve, Portugal
Trees, caldera hotel, algarve, Portugal
Old town hall, Eccles, city of Salford
War memorial, memorial square, eccles, Salford
Ordsall Hall, Ordsall, Salford
Daleks, illuminations from Blackpool at Salford Quays , 2017

The park wasn’t the same since the incident
the big wheel now sits there alone
the funfair moved on – down the road to another town
no explanation given, and silence from its visitors
as gory decoration sways from the wheel
in the northern wind
Salford (Via Trafford Park), 3rd September 2018
This is the place
where mighty ships cargo
lay resting after its journey
after a long ride on the waves
Men toiled in the heat
as silent shipping crates
moved to the sound of the warehouse mice
avoiding the company cat
Inwards and Out
the orders of the day
some on road – some on rail
having come in from sail
To be changed in an instant
to wear or to eat
grain for the flour mill
or silk for the mayors seat
Changes in time led to changes afoot
as sons and daughters move on in their new fancy boots
dancing away to a shanty or two
like their elders before them – they think that its new!
Salford 23rd August
a tale of Manchester central, which I knew as G-Mex when I were young (sic)
It’s the place
where mighty wheels
rolled over lines of steel
to take you north and south and east
to wonderous places where stress released
In the middle of town
The rail network changed – they shut it down
Exciting times lay ahead,
Sport and music from the railways bed
Conferences held under railways arch
Entertainment and sport – set among trees of green
Next to connections set up for the place
Travelways and walkways, Roman Wall, Air and Space
Rolling on to Altrincham, Bury and the Quays
And new lines to the home of Man city and the Beeb
Leading to th’ airport and parks and the trees
and just by the tramstop – in the place by the field
the stations old tale is all but revealed
showing the vehicles that stopped at this place
before changes to the line – Piccadilly replaced.
Salford and Manchester 23rd July
There’s been a swarm of colour land on my home city
Hard working and landing on the landmarks around the place
Bringing a buzz to the neighbourhood!
The bees will bee (deliberate typo) in the surrounding area till the end of august

St Johns Bee – Created by Schoolchildren in Salford and on display in the Lowry
Diverse-bee and Friends – created by Withington Girls school and on display in the Lowry

Greater Manchester – If there’s any you would like me to photograph – let me know
In the meantime – I’ve found some archive photography from 13 YEARS AGO!
(Good evans I was only a bairn (sic)) – Cowparade was a forerunner to #beeinthecity

Close up of a gate at Ordsall Park in Salford – I like the shapes!
The Gates were installed as a “New” entrance to the park
The embossed ident on one of the gates pillars

Salford 4th June 2018
Another photography post, and yes, the image of the local park.
I posted it because after my journey into foreign lands, i’m now thinking upon my next photographic project.
which turn i’ll take – is anybody’s guess. however there’s plenty of scope for me to take a look at. Could be the Birds, Could be landmarks or i could tie up some of the poetry pieces with the photographic stuff.
