Picture of the Week - Reflecting on Rylands

The John Rylands Library is one of Manchesters most attractive buildings, inside and out. A routine walk along Deansgate turned into one of those special photographic opportunities with these glorious patterns created by the low sun reflecting from the windows of the building opposite. An iphone was all I had so it was pressed into action. Back at base I boosted the contrast and saturation to accentuate the effect.

Tour of Britain

The Tour of Britain hit the roads of Cheshire. Two stages came close to Macclesfield, the first from Nottingham to Knowsley and the second a loop around Stoke-on-Trent. The company bike was pushed out and I went along to watch it all go past in a blur. Tour de France winner and Olympic gold medalist, Bradley Wiggins and world road champion, Mark Cavendish were the stars of the show.
