Bridge at Castlefield, Manchester

Photograph taken on Wedneday, 24th January. From a distance, this footbridge over the canal at Castlefield looks very modern and stylish, but on closer inspection it looks worn and dirty with moss growing on it, this is such and interesting photograph and location of Manchester to explore but this spoils it. If you are going to design something in a very modern style, like a bridge, building or public sculpture I believe it should be cleaned and taken care of. I don’t know how old this bridge is, maybe six or seven years, probably more. If it was designed to be white it should be the councils job to keep it white, otherwise there is no point in it looking like this, they might was well paint it green and say it was designed to have moss on it!
