Salford Quays Lightwaves Festival December 2016

The day I bumped into a Dalek,

it was frosty by the quays

there was ice on th war museum airshard

but they weren’t the ones screaming freeze

They were meant to be playing games with th’cybermen

in the round place by the street

but the silver soldiers never showed up

they thought they would be beat

So instead they played some air hockey

with the kids and security guards too

and the Daleks found fame – taking part in the game

and drawing the match 2 by 2

And that night – they were friendly old fellows

as the locals they gave them a cheer

as the Daleks they played, and people weren’t afraid

as they found they had nothing to fear.

A Glass palace has been built

on the banks of the canal

it’s not for the royals –

but its not common or banal

 

It’s a place where programmes will

be written and played

and where young northerners

will learn out a trade

 

Where Drama – of Th’ Lowry

will be played out on screen

whilst players eat at restaurants

in buildings between.

 

And major networks set up in old port

broadcasting most of the national sport

from old Trafford’s cricket and football in day

to far off events in places away

 

These building is local – built up by the skilled

trained up by academy – in City and Guild

Taken over by companies of National Aplomb

plenty more lights, camera, action to come

Shots of the Mediacity & Quayside taken on a Walkabout of the Quays in Salford.  Camera used was my Samsung WB-250…the one I use as a backup for Panoramic Shots.
