I had the most wonderful Christmas and holiday vacation this year, visiting friends and family in the United States as well as in Canada. I was given some wonderful presents, including a Buffalo Sabres jersey from my son and a framed print of this beautiful image above from a friend down south. “Manchester, England, 2010” is by photographer Phyllis Christopher. I love all of her work. It’s so charming and alive. (I must have spent an hour and a half, when I first visited Christopher’s website, just mesmerized by her portraits of … food!) “Manchester” is part of her amazing Editorial portfolio.
