The University of Manchester and UMIST are merging this year to form one big university - also called the University of Manchester. With the thought that some of the university buildings may be disappearing over the next few years I thought it would be a good idea to go out and capture the beauty of some of them.
I have been wanting to go out around Manchester more since being back from London, as I'd not really been out taking photos here for quite some time. The week of lecturers strikes last week inspired me to go out and take some photos, both of the universities and of the picket lines - photos of the AUT and NUS picket lines to come soon.
In addition to these new Manchester photos, I've uploaded sunrise photos from the Isle of Man taken on the last day of 2003.
