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.

We've finally nailed down the basic colors from primary to secondary; now it's time to study other colors, hybrids, and palettes that make this world more complex and non-binary. We run in gradients, and in a geopolitical world, there's illusory utopia in pastels.
Photography as a medium evolved more than just as a way of documenting and capturing real life. It became an avenue for creation and release of fiction. In Erika Zolli's photography, she translates her cognitions into surreal images.
This talented Chicago-based artist and a freelance photographer amazed us with her work from the very start. Clarissa Bonet is inspired by the structures of the city, their impact on the body and she enjoys exploring aspects of the urban space in different contexts.
Color plays a huge but 'subtly-there' role in films. They give out the message and intention, the mood and feelings without being obvious. And David Fincher is no exception to manipulating our perception through his conflict-loving palettes.
Self-portraiture is synonymous to experimenting and getting to know one's self, it's a classic tradition of art history, but it never fails to be beautiful. And such is Rimel Neffati, who finds amusement within herself, through photography, red lipstick, masks, crowns, and flowers.
Film noir is one of the most unique and stylish genre of film that we all continue to love. Expressionistic in manner, yet pessimistic, fatalist and menacing, film noir isn't just about the dark and brooding.
