Journey To The Dark Side

DSCF2796Decided to take a trip over to Manchester, long overdue for a visit, and of course had to go and see the piece by Mila K.DSCF2785Excellent capture of Nelson Mandela by Akse P19.DSCF2783Something a little different for C3 I think, really liking this.DSCF2782Wonderfully surreal piece on the shutters of the former Mooch gallery.DSCF2780Good to see that an original Brickz piece is still almost intact.DSCF2771Frogs, I like frogs 🙂DSCF2761 StitchPart of the Toaster wall, it was huge but has been gone over in one section.DSCF2758Mr Penfold,cheeky chappy. DSCF2753Ghostpatrol with a stunning wall in the Northern Quarter.DSCF2729D7606, quite near to his home territory I think, mind you he gets about.DSCF27225ifur, perhaps.DSCF2707Strange graffiti, not that unusual 😉DSCF2693Tirion Lannister by Akse P19. I don’t often feature an artist twice in one blog post, but this is fantastic and it is such a shame that many of his characters have been dogged. DSCF2677Spotted in a carpark.DSCF2675Boeuf!DSCF2672Cool sticker/ pasteup.DSCF2664Don’ Sleep, by Sneak, good to see him back on it.DSCF2812Tankpetrol, beautiful.DSCF2798Another favourite from the Northern Quarter.DSCF2666Tony Wilson, founder of the Hacienda, immortalised by Stewy. Only found this because I got lost, wouldn’t be a day out if I didn’t get lost at least once.

Had a really good day which only the weather could spoil, and it did, my little dog nearly disappeared in a puddle and was seriously not happy. Had to share my Burgerking with her to cheer her up.
