Photos from car parks

Last month, I mentioned that I’d been asked to remove myself from a car park’s top floor, after taking pictures of the (amazing) views for my urban sketching and screen printing.  Consequently, I put in a request to a certain car park company to be given permission to take pictures from Manchester’s numerous car park roofs.

That permission has been refused due to a number of reasons, which were:
A. There’s too many people asking to take pictures from car park roofs
B. Its a car park, not a photography opportunity
C. You don’t want to pay for the privilege (We’d let you if you had a big budget, a load of cameras, crew, cast and an important company name).

Grrrrrrrrrr. Watch this space.  Who thought taking pictures from the roof of a car park could be so anti-establishment?!  I’m going to try just standing and looking and see what they say then!  I also think that all the people who want to take pictures from car park roofs should get together and mass storm Manchester’s car parks in a flash mob /critical mass style gathering.

Anyway, here’s a picture to be going on with…
