Kirkstall Abbey is a ruined Cistercian monastery in Kirkstall north-west of Leeds city centre in West Yorkshire and one of my favorite places to take my holga 135bc.
Situated on the River Aire in the outskirts of Leeds, Kirkstall Abbey is a beautiful monastery with some of the best preserved Cistercian ruins in England. As well as the ruins there is a museum, the river and lovely walks around the abbey.

Even today, the West is still hung up and mystified with Russia's Soviet past. The Eurasian country is also one of the most talked about in terms of international politics, and more often than not being misrepresented by Western media. This was Russian daily life.
Daniel Arnold may just be one of the most important names in contemporary street photography. Known for his raw takes on New York City life, he leaves no detail glamorized and allows himself to get into their personal space -- a task only for the fearless shooters in the concrete jungle.
