This is a promise...one day I'll take you to York and really show you round this beautiful city. It's about 30 miles from Saltaire and I went there on the train recently to see the annual exhibition of photographs from the Yorkshire Photographic Union (which represents all the Camera Clubs and Photographic Societies in Yorkshire). The show was well worth a visit....inspiring and daunting in equal measure! Afterwards I did a little sight-seeing and some gentle shopping in York's lovely shopping centre. The light wasn't great for photos - it was a terribly dull, cold day - and I had only taken my compact camera as it wasn't a day for serious photography, just for looking. But this snap, taken from the front step of the Art Gallery, gives a taster of this historic city.
The county town of Yorkshire (of course), York is a walled city with some ancient streets and the wonderful York Minster (cathedral). You can see the twin towers of the Minster and part of the Walls on this photo. (Click the pic to view it larger.)
