This was taken from the corner of Gmex Metrolink Station at the top of the stairs that lead down to the bars and night clubs at Deansgate Locks. I walk past this view most Thursday evenings and have wanted to see what a long exposure would look like on a busy Friday evening where there would be a lot of traffic. So a couple of weeks back (inspired by a new brief at university) I took out my camera and tripod to try and get the photo I had in my mind.
This isn’t exactly what I wanted, because there was too much light coming from the offices behind the bridge, so my exposure time couldn’t be much longer than a minute. However, I did manage to capture both cars turning in the road and a train pulling out of Oxford Road Station moving towards Deansgate.
