Breathe

#Octpowrimo #Camera #Breathe #Acrostic

Salford, 24th October 2019

An acrostic of self help and photography!

Back on the corner of the quay

Really trying to grab the colours in that iconic building

Except – right at this moment – it’s not working for you

A time to step back, assess and relax

Take five , sit down and enjoy a drink of something frothy

Have something delightfully gooey and sweet and

Exhale – it’ll still be there when you get back

Man on the corner

Salford, 24th September 2018

Sat on the corner,

a man sits with his pencils, paper and paints

lovingly capturing local life

for years he’s being perfecting his craft

only using the same palette of colours to bring

reality of the places he

draws in pencil or charcoal to life

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.

Historical Home Memories Poetry

Walking down the streets i knew

Heading from the museum bridge
and past the Lowry
I’m heading for my little place
by the streets once known to me

Wharfside still contains its ‘houses
but cottons been traded by song
Sea Shanties ? No, but sounds of the day
that play out all day long

Ordsall Hall still stands proud
Off Trafford and Ordsall Lane
A stones throw away, from where kids play
and the site of a redundant crane

Some Public Houses stand adrift
whilst others cook a different whiff
As ghosts of past lick their lips
where once was beer – lies fish and chips

Towers tall on waters edge,
where posh folk sip coffee on their ledge
apartments now – the latest scene
like the ones they knocked down – it seems obscene.

High schools upped their sticks and left
as hotels they moved in
but new ones rose like the phoenix

as new term started therein

So remind me now – when you talk
of communities on Regent and Tamworth Walk
and Townhouses proud on Napier Green
With changes in city – no longer to be seen
