A Redundant cargo barge on the Bridgewater canal in Manchester (UK)

Following on from yesterday's shot I'm going to be posting some photos over the next few days of the area of Manchester (UK) where the railway bridges at the edge of the city centre cross the 18th century Bridgewater Canal.

Wonderful tones, texture, and detail. The composition lives up to your great standards. And it is a great place to shoot.

I REALLY love this one. There is just something about it. It's got drama and mystery. Love this one.

Laurie from Lincoln, United States

Nice pic! I really get a sense of time with it...probably the B&W...still the feeling on having stumbled on something old and forgotten persists. Well done! =-)

@Laurie: Thats exactly the feeling i had when i first saw the place too!

Anne from White Rock, Canada

Really lovely shots for the past few days of places people never notice. They may have been to these out of the way spots but possibly never saw what you saw! They are kind of timeless and very beautiful in black and white! :-)

@Anne: Thats very nice of you Anne - I'm so pleased you liked the photos. There's a couple more to come over the next few days from this part of Manchester.

I love the tones in these b/w shots for the variety of material textures - stone/brick, water, metal. Nice treatment!

@Ken McCoy: Thanks very much Ken!

Wow, there's something really magical in the luminescence you've captured here. Brilliant.
