Tweet of the Week: The Creation of Manchester

I may never do another “Tweet of the Week” on ATC, but I couldn’t resist sharing this one of New Year’s Eve on Well Street in Manchester’s city centre.


The photo was taken by Joel Goodman and first appeared in this online picture gallery.

But then Roland Hughes of the BBC remarked that its composition was similar to a Renaissance painting and that the guy in blue laying in the middle of the street, reaching for his beer, could be thought of as a parody of the reaching God in Michelangelo’s The Creation of Adam. So he tweeted it out. Since then it has gone viral.

For those of us who weren’t in Manchester on New Year’s Eve, we clearly missed one epic party.
