Which camera do you have?
Thanks!
All of these shots have been done with a Nikon D50, but I have since upgraded to a D90.

Brilliant!

Superb shots – you defiantly have a talent. Nice to see Leeds on the international boards as it doesn't get the exposure it should as it's a wonderful place. You’ve done a great job of showcasing some of the NW and central areas of my city. Cheers.

Good photos. 33 and 34; not so good when you're stuck in it!

Also the chimneys are part of the LGI, a huge hospital in the City Centre, not a power station.

Well, the chimneys do belong to LGI, but it's because (as far as I'm aware) LGI has an autonomous power station

117.




Anyway, some shots from last autumn from my route to the university and back home.

118.




The high-rise in this photo is Broadcasting House, a student accommodation tower which is being built where the old BBC headquarters used to be. The building is nearly finished now and has an interesting rusty cladding. My next installment of photos will have a few recent shots of it

119.




My office has an amazing view towards the North and East of the city. That morning the weather was pretty awesome too with quick showers and patches of sunlight Unfortunately, the dirty windows can't really be opened which makes photography rather tricky.

120.




121.




The sky over Hyde Park.

122.




Typical street of terraced houses. These ones are at least a bit more interesting architecturally - houses in the rest of the area are very plain and densely built.

123.




A cluster of small shops and take-aways. Hyde park is very culturally diverse with a large Asian population.

124.

It took a while getting used to
I think the first time I realised it was when I was about to cross an empty street during a red light. I saw a policeman and decided to wait for the green to come up, except the policeman crossed the road himself

At the same time whenever I come back to Lithuania for holidays I risk getting fined because of my habits of crossing the road the British way
