Piccadilly at dusk with blurred tram

Towering above Piccadilly is the Sunley Tower office building, part of Piccadilly Plaza, completed 1965. To the right is Mosley Street and off the picture frame, Market St. A Metrolink tram swings round to the right on its way to Piccadilly Metrolink stop. The small building on the right appeared as part of Manchester City Council's controversial 2000-2002 Piccadilly redevelopment plan

Composite mage created for the Destinations Manchester CD cover. I stood in Piccadilly for over an hour with camera and tripod capturing a selection of images for use here. Generally speaking the new Piccadilly looks rather less ugly and alienating at night than it does by day.
