Photolog Manchester 27th June 2014

The weather for this one wasn’t bad, per se, it was just a bit grim and cloudy – this produced some rather interesting back drops,but that was about it.

Photolog 19th June 2014 Manchester

For some unknown reason, I made a very short trip up to the Airport on this evening – from first to last photo was about 45 minutes…

Not exactly the most thrilling trip, but two airlines no longer exist, and one Retro-Jet, which makes it a bit more interesting.

Photolog Manchester Airport 15th May 2019

A gorgeous sunny day, and a day off work?
Well, it would be rude not to!

There were a couple of spots I wanted to try out, including the new T2 West car park – as you can see from the photo of the Olympus A321 (and the FedEx B757 on the gallery), photography there is difficult but not impossible.

All in all, a great day out taking the camera for a walk, even if I was aching after!
