MANCHESTER. Underneath The Arches.

Okay I know that technically speaking theses structures are viaducts and not arches but I am allowed a little bit of poetic/photographic licence.

Those few days where you hang about in a festive limbo, gathering your thoughts and getting your breath back after sustained attacks on the turkey with all the trimmings and bouts of serious cracker pulling. I decided to get out of the house and get some fresh air but as it’s still that time of […]
