A brand new wing has just opened at the Trafford Centre by Manchester. The wing is called Barton Square.
Laurie and I went there today, and it's quite impressive, below are some pictures I took.
The walkway in the middle is wide as a Parisian boulevard.
And nude statues, the English are coming along.
This is why I love pocket cameras: I had no idea I'd need a camera today, it was just in my pocket. But I'm quite pleased with these pictures. Not high art, just snapshots or documentation, but very pleasant I think.
Again the little Canon 960/950. Look at the first picture, of the intricate floor design. The light was being reflected directly into the lens, and yet the exposure is perfect. Very impressive.
I have not sharpened them, they are actually so sharp that if I do that, they begin to look unnatural!
Only thing I had to correct was the white balance in those from inside the walkway. They were too green, I suspect the glass is green.
Laurie wondered what the development had cost. I hazarded £50M. Not a bad guess, I think, it seems to be £70M.
