After a day gardening yesterday I have today produced my first, short photo/article page – Old Industrial Unit-River Irwell – for my TinyProject – Manchester & Salford.

Later this afternoon I’m going to a friends place to help them in replacing an Android tablet and/or a Windows 7 notebook PC. I managed to fix these older devices for them temporarily a couples of weeks back, though the notebook’s hardware is failing piecemeal now and the tablet is becoming unusable. Choices, choices and it’s make their mind-up time I’m afraid.

Tomorrow I’m arising at – nearly, for me – the crack of dawn to take my Son-in-Law to the ‘BRI‘ for an operation which should hopefully improve his hearing for him – fingers crossed.

Then home for a morning meeting regarding everyone’s current, favourite topic – ‘GDPR’. Never a dull moment then.

Curiously Fourth

Curiously Fourth’: As can be seen from the wrist watch the young lady is wearing I took this photo at around half past five in the evening. One of a group of people who appeared to be working on some kind of art installation – a carefully positioned and constructed shiny cube with blue LED patterns embedded into it and about the size of small fridge – began assembling a drone on a mini helipad. After photographs and video of their object were taken out came the drone for aerial imaging. Out of curiosity, I watched and waited until the third rotor was fitted and then pressed the shutter. A simple though attractive study in concentration.

'Fellow' Photographer and Subject

Whilst I was busy photographing Birnbeck’s shoreline and the old Pier down at the waters edge, I had not noticed that these two young ladies had arrived and were cheerfully photographing at the bottom of the ‘beach’ access steps. They were a complete surprise to me and I almost stumbled into them as I made my way out of the cove. Naturally I managed to grab a candid shot or two to record the occasion. I hope they would approve of the resulting black&white image shown here.
