The first photo below was taken on Weetwood Lane, from the car park behind the Three Horseshoe pub. The other two photos (below) were both taken on the Otley Road, just below, and within sight of, the Three Horseshoes pub.
So far, photos taken today: February 27, 2017; a grey, overcast day. The photos above were all taken as I stepped out to have coffee with my son, Michael (in the last photo, immediately above) approaching outside Sebby's, the café we had coffee in.
Later this year I will be mounting quite a large exhibition, NIGHTWALKING, consisting of images taken during my walks (usually about midnight) in the neighbourhood. The following three images offer a bit of taste...
The flat / apartment in which I live looks pretty grim from the outside and the path can be treacherous when muddy. But the view from the front windows is great. The photo below hardly gives a sense of scale. My first floor window looks down a steep slope across the valley dense with trees of all kinds.
A few hundred metres from the entrance to my home is one of the gates at the edge of a huge park made up of very diverse areas. The first grid below shows photos from one of the wilder areas, the Tetley Field. Once a sports field, it has been left fallow and allowed to re-wild. Local residents have so far successfully resisted attempts to re-develop as accommodation.
I don't have too many photos of the wide open spaces that make up the most popular, most used area of the park. The four photos below show that area - but are taken at times other than the sunny, busy times. I must make this good this summer.
