Love the blog. I like the second pic, view from lodge lane.
I like how the houses look tiny in comparison to the Ashton Brothers building.

I agree - I like the way telephoto lenses can often make a well-known street or road look so unfamiliar.

I've noticed that. I took one of Stockport Road recently and it looked completely different.
