Eye on the World: Manchester, England

Although the summer sun rarely made an appearance and the days were a tad too chilly (especially for our Managing Editor who has lived in Miami all of her life), the subtle beauty of Manchester shined brightly through the dreary days during a recently taken FAM trip to England.

Here are just a few pictures she chose for Recommend's latest installment of Eye on the World.
