Another good one Mick. You can just see how planners try & emulate (goodness thats a big word for this time of the morning !) buildings of the past but not getting it quite right.

Photographic trickery, Mick???

New buildings with a 'twist'... But set against the old they look a bit Disneylandish!
Not quite as substantial anyway.

Anne only trick I used was to stand in the middle of Crompton street and not get run over with a bus.

Still looks odd Mick, the way the market tower appears to be in the foreground. Maybe the compression thingy that cameras do.

Great shot Mick. Why do I see Minaret?
Well done Mick for your efforts , along with many others on WW .

It is an illusion, the result of a long focus lens.
