Another photo from the Manchester Unity Building, I hope you don’t mind, but with so many images to work on, well I figure you may as well see them as well. As I said, I have so many images to work on for the building and there isn’t enough time right now to do too many other images. I do apologise. I have been taking other images, so you will get to see some new stuff soon.
These are the elevators or lifts on the ground floor of the Manchester Unity Building. Anyone can see these, and they are pretty much the first thing you see when you enter from Collins Street.
I can remember the first time I saw them, I was totally amazed at how wonderful they were. The doors look like pressed copper, and probably are. I don’t think I would like the job of keeping them looking so shiny. There is a working class look to them that I find really intriguing. I don’t know much about the Manchester Unity Independent Order of Oddfellows, and after doing this image I think I would like to know more. I might have to go and do some more research on them.
I took this image very early on Tuesday morning, and even at 6.45am I had trouble with people coming and going. The above image is a HDR, and the first time I did it I used 5 images, but someone walked into the last image and waited for the lift, so when I processed the HDR you could see a ghostly shadow of something. I tried working with it, but it bugged me too much so I did the HDR again but only used 4 images.
It was hard to work out how to do this image. There were so many things in it that I wanted to highlight, but that would have made it too busy, so in the end I decided on the middle lift doors. You get an idea of the rest, and you can still read the inscription on the wall. Great piece of history, it is wonderful to see some history for everyone to read. I also love the writing, and you know it was all done by hand by a signwriter many years ago.
I love this image, and I got excited everytime I worked on it. I hope you enjoy it as well.
