The John Rylands Library

It’s not often I get so taken by architecture but the John Rylands Library in central Manchester is really quite something else.

We were visiting with a view to researching Lancashire folklore so photography was very much an (ever present) afterthought. Here are some of the images I took during our afternoon, all shot with the Olympus Pen F and handheld at speeds down to 1/4 of a second. Hats off to the amazing image stabilising abilities of this little wonder of a camera.

The shots were split toned in Lightroom.

    1. Nope I didn’t! I only heard of their specialness after we’d left. Next time I’ll ensure I check them out, and may sneak my camera inside too. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Wow!!! What a magical building this is, I’m not a fan of Manchester but I’ll certainly make the effort to see this place, it looks amazing. Thank you for the stunning photos Jason, brilliant ๐Ÿ™‚ x
