September was a bit of a non starter for my daily photo’s (hence no post!), but I didn’t let that put me off, I threw myself into October and got back on track. Luckily a few planned trips helped and I felt very inspired to take more photos and even challenge myself to take subjects I wouldn’t normally shoot – cafe’s and interior details for example. I didn’t need to worry, those photo’s became my most liked on Instagram! I think there’s a moral to this story – don’t be frightened try something new!
We’re already half way into August and I haven’t even shown you my photos from July yet! I don’t know where the time is going. July flew by so fast I did realise I hadn’t taken as many photos as usual. Why would I admit to this I hear you ask? Well I like to be honest with you guys and not pretend each month was easy to get images, because sometimes it’s not, but when I did have the chance to get out and photograph there were some wonderful things to shoot. Nature is a it’s peak during July and August with crops ready to harvest and flowers in full bloom. Late summer evening always provide great backdrops for architecture too. Maybe the little break helped me to see the world clearly again…
Have you ever visited your town or city and looked above the shops? You should, it’s amazing what you’ll see…
If you look closely you will find beautiful, detailed architecture everywhere, that has stood the test of time. Leeds is a great example of this as there are many different styles and period features to see.
This project has always been on my ‘things to do’ list, and a couple of weeks ago I got the opportunity to cross this one off. I have always visited Leeds and admired the buildings above the shops and always wanted to capture them. So this is just what I did. I headed out one cloudy (not exactly the best photography conditions) Sunday morning, iPhone in hand, ready to photograph the buildings I found along the way. I had no plan of where I was going, I just went for a wander to see where my journey would take me.
I found lots of great buildings to capture; from the Corn Exchange to the Victoria Quarter, each unique building, period feature and quirky facade all had their own story to tell..
On this particular visit I only photographed a quarter of the buildings found in Leeds, but I’m on a mission to capture and share more of these magnificent buildings.

This month my photography has been focused around two of my favourite subjects; architecture and flowers. I have been lucky enough to visit London, Cambridge and York to capture my subjects, and I find they always make interesting photos.
