Saint Philips Church is set a little back from the main road not far from Salford Catherdral.
Built in 1824 it was designed by Sir Robert Smirke, the architect for the British Museum in London.
Above an otherwise ordinary side door, unusual lettering reads "THIS:IS:THE:GATE:OF:THE:LORD".
The paint is now faded and chipped away in places.
Five years before, the west-facing door's paint was fresh, lustrous and applied over generously, perhaps to try to smooth out the worn antique wood.
Thick monochrome brush stokes had unknowingly prepared a canvas for a sunset palette.
Light from 150 million km away still bright enough to create reflections on a black surface. Imperfect paintwork becoming impressionist strokes.
I enjoy creating these more subtle, less obvious and often abstract images.
This set of images are all photographed around well known areas in Manchester and Salford.
But they are not the typical pictures of these places. Instead, an extract or feeling or observation.
I spend a lot of time at the computer and I've enjoyed using these images as desktop wallpapers.
I have tried to make sure there is an area where icons will be sufficiently visible and have processed them sympathetically to avoid distracting areas.
For £xx you will get forty wallpaper images in this set.
Other sets can be found here and here.
Provided at 4K resolution or optimized for the exact screen resolution of your device on request.
