Monday saw a new Leica M8 arrive and today I just wanted to get out and have a play. I found myself in Salford Manchester. Not many people about, but I came across this chap enjoying his walk.

Just browsing your photos and blog after seeing you pop up on the Manchester UK forums. You've got a fantastic eye, especially for people shots like this. You've made Salford look like 1960s central Europe, to my eye at least.

Super stuff!

Steve this image is superb, possibly one of the best I have seen of yours, it shows a real understanding of the subject and a desire linked with the ability to tell your subjects story. Very please you have at last found time to start your Salford project and if this is an example of what you will be doing, I think the finished work will be of grat importance as a record of life in this area.

Make sure you post these shots on the forum and hope we can meet up soon in the new year.

All the best for the New year to Stephanie and yourself.
