Friday Corners

A couple of photographs from a short walk across Manchester and Salford today. It was one of those days that we get a lot of, slate grey skies and 'Manchester light'. I thought these two made a decent pairing, colour wise and in terms of balance. I like the way the yellow chain appears to float and the manmade wooden box has been forced open by the soil attempting to escape. 

I started to think about corners when I realised that is what I'd been drawn to and the first image that popped into my head was from Stephen Shore, actually one of my all time favourite photographs. So I've included that too for your delectation. 

 "Photographers have to impose order, bring structure to what they photograph. It is inevitable. A photograph without structure is like a sentence without grammar — it is incomprehensible, even inconceivable." Stephen Shore
