Feeling depressed, guess due to the Reverse Culture Shock and the environment I am in, I started looking back at photos I have taken while I was in Manchester. I came across this photo (see above) taken during a stroll along Salford Quays. I found it full of energy and hope. So I thought I should share this shot. I hope it will brighten up your day and give you the extra energy to get through difficult or unhappy times.
Sometime you just wish to be left alone to ponder. Recently, I was feeling this way and was searching for some peace. This is rarely possible in the city centre. The surroundings are usually claustrophobic, buzzing and stressful. So I started looking back at some of the photos I have taken and found this shot, which I took some time back. Then, all of a sudden, I started to smile and I felt a sense of tranquillity. Thus, I wish to share this photo with all of you, and I hope you will find your simple peace and happiness.
By the way, this shot was taken across Piccadilly road in Manchester: Facing Malmaison hotel. If you travel to Manchester by train, Malmaison Hotel will be one of the few buildings that will greet you as you walk out of the train station as you head towards Arndale Centre.
Once in awhile we should stop to enjoy our beautiful surroundings. This photo was taken at the junction where Deansgate, Bridge Street and John Dalton Street meet.
Elliot House along Deansgate was the formal home to the Manchester Education Commitee. During the refurbishment of the Central Library in Peter Square, Elliot House was converted into the City Library. The photo above was captured when Elliot House still hosted the City Library.
If you want to visit Elliot House, you can do so at the follow address:
