I thought it looked cool the way the sky goes from lighter to darker

Leeds Train station is a great place to take photos, it's got a real
buzz at busy times and there are lots opportunities to capture people on
their daily commute.

I usually sit on the platform in the morning reading the free newspaper
while waiting for a connecting train, but I didn't have a paper this
morning, so I used the time to take some panoramic photos using the
camera on my mobile.

I decided to document my commute to work through Leeds train station and
on to Headingley - I think it worked quite well.

Another shot from my Leeds By Night series. The photo series is called Albion Street, as the title suggests, the subject matter is not exclusive to Leeds. These tired feet were taken at the bus stop on Albion Street itself, and seem to capture a strong mood of the end of a night out. Boxfresh trainers, and tired feet.

Cars whizzing past probably incorrectly asssumed that I was setting up some kind of speed trap. This worked in my favour as their brake lights made for some cool ghostly light trails.

I've spent a lot of weekends photographing the night life of Leeds over the past couple of years. This photo captures one of the slightly surreal, more entertaining moments where the camera captures an overview of a situation by being in just the right place. Photos like this don't come along that regularly, but the more time you spend looking for them, the more likely you are to catch one.

Roundhay Park is arguably the best place to sledge in Leeds when the snow falls.
Sometimes a photo works not because of what one person is doing in the frame, but because of what everybody is doing at the same time. This was one of those lucky moments where everything lined up just right, for as far as the eye can see.

A photo of a very familiar face to many Leeds' residents. The bubble man of Briggate.
I had to chase a few bubbles around Briggate, sometimes holding the camera at arms length above my head, other times I was crouching down low to get the right angle.
It took a while before finally getting one just right.

Christmas German market, Millennium Square

Took this shot a couple of years ago. Even though I've moved away from
Leeds now, the approach of winter always reminds me of the good times
I had at the German market - especially the beer tent!
