It’s been a while since I last posted a song for a Sunday! I have been inspired by seeing a number of live performances recently and have a few of my favourite songs/videos to share in the coming weeks. First up is Beverley Knight! what a performer! so much energy and a great voice. It was lovely to hear some of the old tunes and new ones. I am looking forward to seeing her again soon.
This summer I spent a week travelling north, first stop was Manchester, a city l lived in as a student and have returned to as a visitor many times since.
I was happy to revisit the Whitworth Art Gallery and really enjoyed spending time in the cafe and visit the refurbished central library, the last time I was in the city was a few years ago.
My primary reason to visit having looked up current exhibitions was to see the “Parliament of Ghosts” by Ibrahim Mahama.
It was an impressive exhibition providing a lot to think about and review I like the parliament installation made up of bus seats. The Whitworth is a lovely gallery and I enjoy coming to Manchester to visit (See my previous visits here). I also visited The Manchester art gallery, where I came across Halima Cassell exhibition “Virtues of unity” Halima is an artist and Sculptor, I really enjoyed exploring and getting to know her work.
I stayed one night at the ibis Manchester Centre Portland Street originally booked via Booking.com it was a great location from the train station an access the city centre.
Reviewing some of my favourite photos from the former Daily Post Photo Challenge. Remembering a mini family day out with my twin sisters and niece who was very scared of the moving dinosaur (very funny!).
Reviewing some of my favourite photos from the former Daily Post Photo Challenge. It’s a wonderful walk along memory lane remembering my favourite places and the people I was with.
Set within Pollok Country Park the Burrell Collection building is one I have visited many times. The cafe is a lovely place to sit, contemplate the many objects and artworks collected by Sir William Burrell.
Light floods in
On the ground floor walking through the exhibition space, you are constantly reminded of the setting and the closeness of nature surrounding the building.
Life and Times
Recently I watched “Tiger Tales” (6+), a show at Glasgow’s Platform venue the performances were great and I really loved the set, a square frame encased in a framework of string attached to buckets at the top designed by American artist Fred Pommerehn.
Buckets and lines
Finally a fundraising evening event on the other side of Pollok Country Park the lights where high above the barn where we danced the night away.
