This is so last week (but still ace).
Here’s a few snaps of cool street art and stickers I’ve seen spotted around Leeds. If more people did stuff like this instead scrawling crappy tags on stuff the world would be a better place.
This little guy on a phone box in the city centre looked really cheery for someone who spends their life surrounded by either crazed bargain-hunters or vomiting drunks. I feel a bit sorry for him, to be honest.
A nice smiley face that popped up on a derelict building on The Calls. The building it’s on is virtually falling down, and is covered in MDF boards and scaffolding, so this little splash of colour really did it a favour.
And this is a panel from the side of a building in Belfast. It’s technically not Leeds (or actually not Leeds in any sense, really) but I love the decayed feel of it – the many scraps of tattered posters and the old decorations contrast nicely with the modern QR code in the bottom-right.
Some friends in London have just bought a water tower to live in. This is the view from the top.
An urban fox we spotted hanging round in the garden of our friends’ house in St John’s Wood over the weekend. He just sat there, occasionally stretching and yawning and casting a disparaging glance in our direction as we gathered round the window to stare.
One of the random performances we stumbled across while out and about for Leeds Light Night: it’s a re-enactment of an old mummers play, featuring fire poi, beaked children in tutus and all kinds of other funny goings-on.
