Hmmm Salford Station...all new and shiny!

They've spent a few bob on this Victorian frontage dragging it up to 21st century accepability, new paint job is nice as well, almost de-giddyfied myself now so will be have time to leave some of my 'scrabble in a blender' style comments once more......... oh btw, how are they ever going to paint the girders above the glass ceiling ever again????????

You (and the Council, or was it BR?) have done exceedingly well to make this dark "underpass" seem bright- I used to commute through here and it was a gloomy place! Lovely PP work by you, but it looks like the entire run-off water from the railway above is going to pour down that drainpipe on to passers-by!! smile
David Johnson: Apparently they've popped uplighters into the tunnel but Ive not ventured in there yet, save that for when its lashing it down.

David Johnson: Amazing what can be engineered from big plates of glass these days.
I absolutely love the depth of the reflections in this one. The colours really pop too! One of my favorites!

Brings out the eclecticism and exoticism of our illustrious forebears. Great reflections.
David Johnson: Well,I couldn't have put it like that but you managed it...ta..and as ever a big up to all those Victorian engineers and their 'Built to Last' ethic.

stunning shot David love the reflection/colour/shadows, well everything reallysmile what is a alpa spotmatic when its in town?
David Johnson: Glad to see someone is keeping a close eye on me, often naff about with things on here and see if anyone picks up on it, check out some of my tags on flickr, anyway old son you've won todays star prize which is a Virtual easter Egg with an Alpa Spotmatic handcraftd from a Twix inside, NIIIICE....!
Love the picture David, it actually looks as if they have managed to blend the modern with the Victorian successfully. Almost worth going to Salford to seesmile
David Johnson: Easy Bill, you need an up to date set of Jabs still.....
There is so much detail in and through the glass david it is hard to fathom out what is what. But then why bother, it is a very good and intriguing image.
David Johnson: Looked at it and thought, "How do you make an empty space surrounded by glass look intresting"? Low spring sunshine is a big help as well.

Wow, what a lot of reflections.

The pillars and so on have painted up nicely, haven't they. smile
David Johnson: I think the thing is to go back in about 5 years and see whats still intact and/or needs redoing, I can see Victorian engineers rotating in their resting places.
