Impressions of Ancoats

I recently went on a photowalk around Ancoats in Manchester. I don’t know the area very well, so I wanted to get a series of pictures documenting an (almost) first-timer’s impressions of a new area. It’s a simple fact that Ancoats is somewhat run-down, but the late evening light lent a lovely soft quality to the area and helped to enhance the many bright colours to be found. This is not just a region of dingy old buildings – there’s beauty and interest to be found anywhere.
