It was actually quite a productive day and I had lots of architectural images to choose from. Some from Sheffield where I pottered around the old Park Hill flats – probably some of the most iconic and opinion splitting buildings in Sheffield. Whilst many sections lay empty and decrepit, others have been subject to a regeneration programme aiming to make the buildings more attractive to the yuppies! It is an interesting place to visit and eerily quiet in the abandoned sections.
Later I travelled to Manchester where I went to watch a Sleater Kinney gig…on a school night no less! I was thrilled by the evening light bouncing around the old and new buildings that surround Manchester Piccadilly station. My choice for photo of the day is a simple, unaltered, unedited image of a curvy building…I just liked it! But I also wanted to share Park Hill images…

This section is part of the refurbished flats…a snazzy new spiral staircase!
