Leeds through their eyes: Dianne

I love seeing how others take photos of Leeds with film cameras, so I was incredibly excited to see Dianne's photos of Leeds on her blog and when I asked if she minded me sharing her photos here, she said yes. Huzzah!

Dianne named these photos Dirty Leeds and that in particular made me laugh - I often forget just how industrial and downtrodden areas of Leeds can be, but I think Dianne's caught it perfectly.

Leeds through their eyes: Chris aka I <3 Minox

It's not very often that I share others peoples photos on here, but every so often I stumble upon something so inspiring and exciting, something I just can't stop looking at, that I just have to share it on here with everyone.

So today I am featuring some of the most amazing film photos of Leeds that I've seen in a long time, taken by Chris Wrightaka I ♥ Minox on Flickr. As well as capturing the beauty of Leeds architecture, Chris also captures the people of Leeds with his Olympus OM cameras and black and white Ilford film producing stark yet emotive photos.

I love living in Leeds and I often think that I should explore the city further and take more photos. Chris's photos remind me that actually, you don't have to go far to find amazing photos, in fact they are right underneath your nose and sometimes you just need a fresh pair of eyes to remind you.

If you have time, definitely check out more of Chris's photos on his Flickr photostream, you will not be disappointed.

Harry's little photoshoot


As part of my sister's wedding, little Harry got to have his photo taken wearing a celebratory bow tie, which he seemed more than happy to do for a treat.

The photographer - Daniel from Lightening Photography was amazing, both with Harry and throughout the wedding. I can't wait to frame these somewhere in our house.
