Christmas carols and mince pies accompanied the switching on of the Christmas tree lights outside Victoria Hall in Saltaire. A chance to try some outdoor photography for a change. Is it too early for Christmas photos?
Saltaire Christmas Lights Switch On!
This last one I tried out in black and white for Leanne Cole and Laura Macky’s Monochrome Madness. I hope you can still feel the atmosphere despite losing the colourful Christmas lights.

The One Park West building in Liverpool, designed by architect César Pelli in 2008. It contains apartments, offices and a gym and was awarded the Carbuncle Cup in 2009 for the worst new building in the UK. Personally I think this seems a little unfair, its a very eye-catching building with some interesting lines and from the side it almost looks like a ship going out to sea.
