One last shot from 2008 - a Morris Minor in Harold Place, a typical street of Hyde Park.

I have a feeling this place looked exactly the same 40 years ago bar the occasional modern car

As you might know, February 2009 had a week of proper-ish winter in the UK

I hadn't been following the weather forecasts and the first bit of snow caught me completely by surprise. I was about to close the curtains of my bedroom and go to bed but what I saw through the window made me get some warmer clothes, my tripod and run outside.

A few shots just outside my house on Queen's Road in Hyde park.

126.




127.




128.




Hyde park is known for quite high levels of crime. As I was taking these pictures another photographer approached me and warned that some chavs had just tried taking his camera just 50 metres down the road. Although I managed to avoid getting mugged or robbed this year, I'm still looking forward to moving into my new flat in a much nicer area.

Anyway, the following day saw much more snow to the delight of some and annoyance of others

129.




130.




131.




132.




133.




Someone decided to leave their bike near the university's school of engineering. Not the best idea that was

134.




135.




Roger Stevens Building, housing a couple dozen of lecture theaters. An interesting piece of 60's architecture, although, not surprisingly, not everyone likes it

136.




137.



138.

Time to revive the thread

First, a shot from Kirkstall Brewery. It was opened in 1833 and operated for 150 years until its closure in 1983. A few years ago it was reconstructed into student accommodation for the Leeds Metropolitan University.

139.




And now, a not-so-pretty view from the Sheepscar area North of city centre.

148.

Wow... This thread is ancient

Though my time in Leeds has finished, I've gathered a bit of a collection of photos over the years, I'll try to share some more.

161. Some more shots from the top of the car park. The Plaza again. Quite impressive in height, totally boring in architecture
