Great shot !!!

I like the perspective you've chosen and the slightly blurred appearance really conveys a sense of being in a rush, almost like some of the move shots you see where they want to convey the confused rush to escape feeling.

Niall, with a name like Smith I can say it was the best thimg to happen to Manchester.
It was a bit hairy at the time. I was on duty in the City Centre both days!!
Hey, look at it now totally regenerated. Buzzing City.

A lot of folk here say the IRA bomb was the best thing to happen to Manchester in a long time. (No-one killed/seriously injured and huge inflow of funding that lead to total regeneration. I don't say it, of course, with a name like O'Shea...

Yeah, very 60's very Urban.
Nice capture.

I remember when this was a Bomb-site 1992 & 1996
Stu20-Oct-2004 14:00
Excellent. Could have been taken in the 1960s

Love it - great angle, great framing, and I like the green tones too!

Mommy's tired little darling.. or Mommy's slow little girl. Busy Mommy.. off to try to get everything done in her busy little world.
"Stop dawdling" .. "But your pulling on my ARM!"
Excellent monochrome tones .. a bit off b&w gives it extra interest. The slant (king of the hip shots) makes the viewer feel as if they are (perhaps) the little child being dragged along - a sense of motion .. a sense of urgency.

This has a very late 60s feel to me - both in tone and style of photographer, as well as the 'fashion' of the shoes and coat length. To me it's evocative of 'The Loneliness of the Long-Distance Runner' or 'Saturday Night and Sunday Morning', or any of those other gritty working-class novels from the 60s that I read while in my late teens and trying to set the world to rights. You have a great eye for this sort of stuff Niall. Wonderful.

Ahhhhh... lines angles legs railing bricks building... urban hipshot perhaps?

Excellent capture, Niall. That is exactly how it feels to be dragged around! I miss the date (for the PaD). Tor
