Walking It recently dawned on me that while I grew up in York, photograph-wise I don’t actually have a lot to show for it. I have plenty of my adopted city of Bradford, but barely any for the city where I was born and spent the first 18 years of my life living in.
So, since it was a nice day – one of the nicest of the year so far – I decided to go out and take some photos. However, over the course of the afternoon “some” became “a lot” and the end result is that I have 87 photos to sort and tag at some point.
Furthermore, rather than taking the bus into town, I decided to walk in, and decided to take the slower scenic route by the river instead, which means that I’ve walked around 7 miles today. Most of the lower half of my body is aching right now.


  1. Good job you weren’t using traditional film then. 7 miles is quite a way to walk in town.

  2. After Edinburgh, York is one of my favorite cities on earth. I’ve got loads of photos from my visits.

  3. Wow… I went on a random trip to york today, first time i’ve ever been.
    We were looking for a wetherspoons to eat and spent a good 1.30hrs looking around and asking people but with no joy. Ended up eating at a trendy sort of place near [a] river.

  4. Dan: There’s two Wetherspoons but they’ve only been open a couple of years. One – The Punch Bowl Hotel – is next to Micklegate Bar, and the other – The Postern Gate – is near Clifford’s Tower.
