Rylands's Pictures

Rylands on Reflection
Rylands on Reflection (Pentax Optio 50)

This didn't look like much of a picture when I took it on the LCD screen and you might say the same now. However the picture actually seems better after putting it onto a screen though admittedly the sun was on the screen so the contrast was awful when I was taking it, perhaps a good reason for a DSLR.

Anyway we were at the Balearic event in Albert Square and had a bit of a trot around. Seemed OK but nothing special for my tastes. On the Saturday when we went it was Dressage then a band and repeat. Don't get me wrong the Dressage was impressive and the band we saw was Mallorcan. I did start getting worried when the singer pointed out a guy who had an AC Milan top on. It was only then that I realised that the comfortable jacket I had on was a jacket bought during our holiday to Seville which was “Sevilla Fútbol Club S.A.D.” jacket and the crowd was thinning exposing me... time to go.

Luckily it was time to go so we left to have a look around John Ryland's Library again. On the way out I took this which as mentioned looked bad but in reality looks better. Mind you it could be better.

John Rylands Library
John Rylands Library (QTEK 9100)

At the start of this weekend I didn't hold out any hope for pictures of any kind. Down at the thought that this might be the third week of no pictures or at least the idea of trawling though the bad bunch of photos I have saved to find some archive pictures, I went shopping. After a spin around the shops we passed John Rylands Library which I have visited recently and I reckon it definitely worth a visit.

It's interesting to find that it was built by his wife after his death, and it's also interesting to find that there used to be a Rylands shop and factory premises in the shops surrounding Piccadilly gardens. If you want to know more, it's probably best to ignore my half accurate prattle and read the Wikipedia entry. Failing that get it from the horses mouth as it were and pop along to this great church-like library.

As I was trying to take this picture a bus stopped at the bus stop in front of me, and just like the picture of the Hellfire Club someone on the bus decided to get in on the action and a knobhead at the back of the bus decided the best course of action was to wave. I'm never really sure why people do this. I wonder if his thought process was a little like this "Ah that looks like a great shot of the Rylands Library, the only think that would make the shot better would be me in the corner of the picture waving like a dick".
