Yet another shot from my pre-pizza mini shoot on Tuesday. Amazingly I decided to drive into Leeds that night and saved 1 hour of nus nightmare and used the time to walk around the corn exchange/market/vic. quarter and got lots of HDR's before meeting my mates.

This is the entrance at the Kirkgate end of the market, taken from the traffic island in the middle of the road. I wanted it to look HUGE and impressive, so what better than a very wide lens looking up at it to give that "child's eye" view of the building.

Not cloned out the bags of rubbish as that's part of market life.

The shop on the left is a kinki lingerie shop which was full of halloween kit that night, tried a few shots there but they didn't really work.

Got the day off work and its the flattest, greyest day of the year :-(

May go try and find the illusive Flash Centre in Leeds...

there was a church on the road to Goosnargh, I forget the area's name now, just outside a really rough estate. We put that pointy spikey stuff on that. I was on the top of a fully extended ladder, about 60 feet up, steel brushing off pigeon poo then fixing the stuff (called ECOPIC) with silicon gel...

we did that on a few other less impressive buildings!

when I was there we did all the drains around Fulwood - putting bags of rat poison on strings, dangling them into the sewers and then nail-gunning the string into the wall so we could pull the bags up in future to see if there's been any activity.

right out on blackpool road, near that organ shop, there was a load of noisey hens that we had to catch and move - we had a 200 foot net and all the environmental health officers (in suits) chaising the thiungs... we caught... none. Comedy value was HUGE though!

6 months of fun, if only you could make a decent wedge from it I'd do it full time, it was ace

Cracking shot yet again Adrian. I got lost in the middle of Leeds once trying to find the M62 back to civilisation ( Wink ) after a concert at the Irish Centre. Took bloody ages to get out again! LOL

Definately prefer the non-sepia version. Are there pigeon nets on top of the buildings? Don't know if they need to be removed before the image is sold to local council for use.
