The lovely photo which forms the background to the title of my blog was taken by Tom Blackwell. Over the last few years he has taken some amazing pictures of urban Manchester, and has a number of portfolios which can be found on the photo sharing website flickr.
As a fan of Toms work, I often check to see if he has uploaded any new pictures – to my delight I found this new photo giving a rather unique vista of Manchester.
This lad is a photoshop wizard!

I worked in the City Centre for 20+ years, so Manchester has always been the centre of my universe.
This artwork is a great amalgamation of buildings and memories.
The image for me is, Manchester – The Planet. Or have I just put too much sugar on my Weetabix?
Great post Mike and a great piece of work Tom.
