Location: Weaste Metro stop, Salford
Weaste not blessed with colour
Industry fills its heart.
With often a funny odour
Yeastie industrial fart.
I took a photo of my sister by the met stop on our way into town
I used my new four-lens camera and snapped as she turned around.
Action shot with light streaming through the newly planted tree
The four images made Weaste look beautiful to me.
It revealed nothing of the grey industrialness
Nothing of regeneration, old meets new broken community mess.
It looks beautiful and bright
No flat-pack new development flats in sight
No gated communities to keep out the masses
No shopping trolleys in the street and broken glasses.
Just a colourful image for your eyes to feast
No waste and yeast equal Weaste.
