Bramall Hall, Bramhall, Stockport

Bramall Hall, Bramhall, Stockport

This afternoon I visited Bramall Hall, in Bramhall, Stockport. It is a wonderful example of a ‘Cheshire Black and White’ timber framed manor house, with origins dating back to Medieval England. The weather was wonderful as you can see from the photograph below. I am very happy with the hundred or so images that I captured today; including many interesting close ups of flowers.

Central Park Pond – New York City

Central Park Pond - New York City

My last day in New York so I wanted the make sure it was the best. Did a little shopping and then dragged Mike back up to Central Park to find the pond I had seen some great pictures taken from. We were both very thankful that we made the effort as the area of the park we found was stunning (as the picture below shows). To the right of this picture was a small bridge over the pond and an ice rink.

Walked down to the east side to visit the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) but got there a little early so walked across the 5th Ave and visited the National Basket Ball (NBA) store and also went into the Disney store. MOMA was really great and there was a lot of extremely interesting and inspirational art and design pieces. I then took the subway downtown to see ground zone and take a few photos. I spent the rest of the day shopping around Macys, the Empire State Building and 5th Ave. The photo below was taken from outside the New York Central Library. That evening I walked back to Time Square for even more shopping.

Today I started my two weeks of work experience at Granada TV in Manchester. I will be working in the Art Department with the art director, production designer and their team. Started work at 9am and I didn’t leave until after 6pm. Evidently I left early, obviously I have a lot to learn – I am going to be extremely busy.
