My Town – progress report

Being one of the five f50 members still to post 12 images of ‘My Town’ I must admit to still having some work to do on the project. Though I live in Liverpool, I’ve opted to base the project on my home town of Manchester (just 38 miles away). I left Manchester 20 years ago and, despite the proximity, have been back just a handful of times.

This has had a number of effects on the project as you’d expect. What I thought would be a ‘street photography’ project has actually become something else. Wandering the streets you grew up in as a raggedy arsed kid is bound to bombard you with all sorts of memories. So rather than just hunt for ‘street’ images, I’ve gone with the flow. Here are a couple of the resulting images.

  1. Thanks Keith. So many ways to approach it. I have gone with my take on one part of town rather than trying a touristic overview of the key landmarks. Some street stuff but generally more meditative. Really looking forward to seeing what everyone else has done.
