As part of this world wide Photo Walk day you`ll have the chance to capture the best bits of Leeds - old and new. Don`t worry that we`ll be in a huge gang - you can go off in smaller groups and just meet up as we get to key points as you see fit. I`ll do up a map nearer the time marking out a route but don`t worry about wandering a little off if the mood / shot takes you there.
We`ll maybe do a group shot at the start and finish if possible for posterity but anything goes for shots you take on the rest of the walk.
After taking in what you will in Millennium Square the route goes on down past the library and left to the Henry Moore gallery where there is a WW1 veterans event from 10.30. You can get shots of Town Hall / library on way. Then off down Park Row towards station and old post office - look out for building detail on the way. Left along Boar Lane( construction, city church, the Bourse, right at Lower Briggate and then follow the Calls.
A chance to take some pictures of the waterfront and maybe the Armouries at the Bridge there. Then back up Call Lane and a chance to take in the Corn Exchange building before making your way up Vicar Lane, through the Victoria Quarter / County Arcade. Through and up to the Headrow and then on back to the Tiled Hall Cafe in the central library / gallery.
You might want to bring kids / family along for the walk - no worries but photographers have to register with email addresss to get full details and entry to the competition / prize element.
No themes to follow - just your imagination - old and new, reflections, street photography - whatever is your whim. At the cafe there will be a chance to grab a drink / bite to eat and share some of your images on camera.
