and the sunshine too!
I’ve been trying to update my blog theme and appearance, and although I (really really) love this layout, I am having trouble with the comments showing up… argh! So sorry to anyone who’s trying to comment, hopefully I will figure it out eventually…

This weekend my parents are moving out of the house they’ve lived in for the past 18 years – a house that I spent 10 years of my childhood in – and another 8 years going home to.
Everything with the move has happened very fast, so its odd to think that the last time I was there was the last without even realising it. I’m not too sad about the actual house, I’ve had 8 years to get used to not being there, but I am sad about not getting to say goodbye to the massive oak tree that I used to look at every day… isn’t that odd.

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 Wright aka 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.

First, I apologise now for the overload of photos, but I got a little carried away taking photos of this beautiful building.
These photos are a mixture of LC-A and Zenit-B photos, you can really see the difference a light meter makes I think and also the effect that over exposing has on the Lomography 400 iso film – again some of the photos have a distinctively orange tinge to them but even sat next to the auto exposed LC-A photos, I still really like them. You can also really see the texture that the Zenit B gives photos when you compare the two cameras, I still haven’t figured out exactly what does this but I think its the shutter fabric…
Is it weird that this building took my breath away a little? I think this photo above really captures how grand and striking it looked in the sunshine.
Fountains Hall dates from around 1600 and is built partly with stone from the Abbey ruins. Although only a couple of rooms were open to the public, it was definitely worth a look around.
