I absolutely love living in Leeds and one of my favorite buildings in the city is Leeds Town Hall and I particularly enjoy exploring the area around the Town Hall as well. The Town Hall itself was built between 1853 and 1858 on Park Lane, which is now the Headrow towards the top end of the city. It is one of the biggest – and tallest town halls in England and was designed by Cuthbert Brodrick.
The exterior of the building is dramatic with huge columns, ornately decorated doors and two stone lion statues stand proudly at the entrance of the Town Hall. The interior also includes grand halls, painted ceilings, ornate columns and statues that complement the architecture and the grandeur of the building perfectly. The Town Hall is mostly used for civic duties, however there are sometimes concerts and shows in the Grand Hall and often exhibitions and open days when tourists can explore the hall and the basements.
The area surrounding the Town Hall is also grand, with amazing buildings that echo the architecture of the Town Hall and also provide a wonderful opportunity to explore the city with your cameras. The area reflects a period of rapid growth in the first half of the 19th century that Leeds went through and the details of the architecture are fascinating as well as insightful to the history of the city.

On my birthday, I climbed the holiest mountain of Bali on a genuine pilgrimage. Walking towards Pura Besakih is also a tale about Balinese Hinduism, which is a singularity in Indonesia. So tighten your sarong around your hips and stick with me on this spiritual passage through the gates of heaven.
Last summer we were lucky to visit 4 cities in 3 different countries, just within a few days. This was reason enough to give my very first LomoChrome Turquoise a try. Afterwards I was astonished by the absolutely unexpected colors of the shots.

When I went to the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone I was deeply impressed by Pripyat. The city was home to most of the workers of the nuclear power plant and evacuated two days after the disaster. Now it's a larger than life museum about the Soviet Union. It is the last city of the CCCP.

Vicuna is one of my best friends and wherever the wind takes him I will catch a paraglide to meet him. I did so, when he chased turtles in Polynesia and now, when he is digesting cheese in Switzerland. My prerogative was to hit a mountain on my birthday and so we did.
