On Sunday we had to walk through the cultural quarter of the city. We noticed lots of activity. The 2 main theatres sit side by side - the Lyceum on the left here, and the Crucible on the right.
I love the beautiful old fashioned Lyceum, but I also love the iconic Crucible just as much.
I always photograph them from the front, but as we were crossing the road behind, I took a photograph of the Lyceum from the back.
And Ive never photographed the statue of Mercury from this angle either..
... and was fairly surprised when I viewed the photo. Don't look Ethel!!!!
The crucible has just had a complete refit, and today was being prepared for the enormous sporting event that is...... (no, not the blummin Olympics), but of course....
I'm not a huge fan of it myself, but I love the buzz that it brings to the city. We will be going for a wander round when it is in full swing to see who we can spot!
