That Lucky Old Sun’s A-Comin’

Children at a drinking fountain in St. James’ Park, London, in August 1937.

It’ll soon be heatwave weather here again.

In the meanwhile, turn that fire up, Jen.

Within A Dampened Twilight

I love this photograph of Deansgate, Manchester, taken during a heavy rainstorm this August, 2019.

Taken from Deansgate Station, it has been likened to a Lowry painting.

It was taken by Simon Buckley, an artist whose photographs I discovered in his blog Not Quite Light, featuring photographs of the older, northern parts of the city that I love when, well, it was not quite light.

His blog led me to his website, where you can view and purchase copies of his prints:
