Adidas Spezial Exhibition, Manchester

This is my first blog in a while. I’ve kind of put this blog on the backburner for the last few months as my wife and I readied ourselves for the arrival of our 1st child Lucas.

On Sunday my wife and I (for a change) had no plans. My brother, sister-in-law and my niece had just left our house as they had been staying a few days. I came across the Adidas Spezial Exhibition in Manchester via a Facebook friend and realised it was the last day that it was showing. 

The exhibition was based on Dale Street in Manchester’s trendy Northern Quarter, a part of the city which I have visited a few times of late. It offers some lovely cafes/restaurants. I can highly recommend that you check out Home Sweet Home. The burgers there are amazing and the cakes are ridiculous!

We set out with our near 7 week old boy Lucas to take in the historic and iconic sneakers that Adidas has produced over the years. Armed with just my Sony A77 and 24-70mm f2.8 Zeiss lens I marched my wife and child around the exhibit snapping away and even used the pram handle to steady the camera for a few relatively slow shutter shots to show motion of some of the other Adidas fans attending the show.

Check out my snaps from the exhibition and leave a comment.
