Diary Wednesday 11th May 2016

Photo taken by me – street sculpture – Manchester
Preston, England
May 12, 2016 5:22am CST
8 am – Woken by gas pipes being laid across the street. The heavy drilling shook the house like an earth tremor. 9.30 am to 11 am – intense online job search – actually secured an interview for later in the month. Noon – Headed out taking photos. The weather was amazing and my legs were aching a lot by the time I stopped. I did get the very strange sculptures added here from the Manchester / Cheetham Hill border areas. Evening – I went to a creative writing workshop where I helped critique some impressive work in progress for some upcoming authors. Afterwards I went for a few beers with friends before coming home by Metrolink tram. Arthur Chappell

Hope you have a great interview. Those sculptures look like they are made out of metal or steel.

Sounds like a great day for you despite the rude awakening from the gas pipes.

good luck on that interview, hubby has put in a ton of apps this week, and needs another one printed off, which I will nab for him at work tomorrow, as that one requires a hard copy

What do you think the artist had in mind that these huge metal TURNS should symbolize?
