Never been a fan of this new fad for calling areas of cities "quarters".
It's a bit like calling a photo shoot a "workshop", just a little pretentious. Workshops are where you weld things together or chop up wood and come out with a chair, and quarters are a 25% of a whole thing.
The exchange quarter is nowhere near 1/4 of Leeds, and neither is the Victoria Quarter and nor is the Northern Quarter of Manchester 25% of that city centre..
Anyway, this is the Corn Exchange area where a good few years ago, the Town House, Fudge and Pitcher and Piano used to be the hub of Leeds' night life, you'd walk on a beach of broken glass from one bar to another, pushing through a blend of rugby types and chavs to get your next over priced drink in a bar with little personality.
I'm sure Dan Pearson has a few stories from down here anyway
Leeds has moved on now, this area is now a lot quieter and a nicer place to go - and as you can see pretty quiet at 5:45 on a tuesday evening in October.
This is 3 shots over 6 stops, blended in photomatix and straightened up a little in Photoshop.
