The Colour Purple

There’s a challenge for every photo and a photo for every challenge. (Well, almost all of the time)

When I saw this week’s Fun Foto Challenge from Cee:Purples, I remembered these photos of Hotspur House in Manchester’s Northern Quarter.

Manchester’s most characterful, independent district is a jumbled network of streets to one side of Piccadilly Gardens – once home to busy textiles warehouses and even the occasional umbrella factory. Now, the red brick buildings with their New York-style fire escapes are regularly used in film sets, and the streets are bursting with independent cafés, shops, bars, and cultural hotspots.

The Northern Quarter has become a destination in its own right, with the laid-back, bohemian vibe during the day transforming at night into teeming pavements of people in search of good food, craft beer, pop-up events and live music. – Creative Tourist
