I recently took myself on a little lomowalk around the less famous Hyde Park corner in Leeds, LS6. Although not as famous as its London counterpart, it is great for a bit of an urban lomowalk.
I used to live in Hyde Park a few years ago when we were all students. It is a vibrant area, just north of the main university campus and cutting through the 2 sides of Woodhouse Moor with lots to see and do, particularly as a photographer. Beautiful graffiti decorates almost every bit of wall space and I love visiting regularly to see what pieces have come and gone.
There is also a skate park and play area on the park itself if urban sports are your thing or you have young children. However, I like to visit the quirky cafes and shops which line every side of the major crossroads marking the area.
I am also a big fan of the lovely Hyde Park Pub on one of the corners, marking the area and making it always full of chatter and laughter. It also comes in handy in the summer months when you are spending the day at the park and need to pop off to the toilet and get a nice cold drink.

From the simple Vivitar 110 camera he received from his grandmother, Brett Wolff already accumulated close to almost a hundred cameras and accessories in his analog arsenal.

The lives of artists are sometimes as phenomenally interesting as their work. Admirers even go as far as emulating their creative process, style and philosophies. Photographs of actors, writers and musicians in their element make this idolatry even more vivid.
The works of seven contemporary artists—all outcomes of various alternative photographic processes—are the subjects of the "Light, Paper, Process: Reinventing Photography" exhibit at The J. Paul Getty Museum.
