There’s a lot of new building going on in Leeds, so on a rare sunny February day I decided to take the 5D Mark IV and the 24mm tilt Shift lens out and going capture some of the new and classic architectural delights.
I decided to start at the new Wellington Place developments which is immediately west of the train station. This is a new village-style development of interestingly shaped office blocks with tall vertical windows. I managed to catch a lot of images from the outside pavements but when when I went into the complex itself, I found that you needed permission to take photographs on site, so I decided to move onto somewhere a little more positive towards photographers.
From here I went up to the riverbank to the station, via this really tall new building which was beautifully lit. Past the new Channel 4 HQ at The Majestic and into City Square. Nothing particularly new here but some nice buildings including the 1 with a tent on top. I think it’s called one City Square.
After the I’d spotted a lot of new student accommodation being built near to the arena, so headed up that direction how to find my old workplace, Fairfax House. , and you things being put up next to the Merrion Centre.
By this time the light was getting nice and low creating a lot of shadow on the street and beautifully lit buildings,
And then the inevitable happened, the sun dropped behind a cloud leaving all the buildings in Shadows. a typical grey Leeds day. so I decided to get a couple of shots of the town hall and Civic Hall before heading home
Here are a few more shots from the day
