Welcome to the 'I Just Wanna Tek Gud Photos' Blog

At least once a month we get out as a group on an organised outing of some description, and being a group of people who enjoy taking photos we usually come home with a very interesting and generally appealing selection of photos.  This blog is a record of where we have been and the photos we took at the time.

Walk Around Park Hill Flats

January 2015 - Urban Splash are now most of the way through the redevelopment of Park Hill Flats and there is now only 1 of the 5 phases left to be redeveloped, so we saw this as our last opportunity to have a look around what was left of the original streets in the sky.  

We met on what was a chilly but sunny morning at the top of the amphitheatre behind the train station and then slowly walked down and back up the frontage before venturing into the concrete skyways. Most of the flats are boarded up now which gave it a lot of atmosphere, albeit a much different feel to when 1000 people lived there.  We talked a lot about 'leading lines' whilst taking our photos, so hopefully you will see a few in our selection of shots.

There is a section at the bottom of this page for comments if you have any feedback, let us know what you think of our photos.

I Just Wanna Tek Gud Photos is an open (and free) group for photographers based in and around Sheffield.  If you would like to join us on a future outing have a look on our Upcoming Outings page to find out where we're going next.

On the evening of the 15th October 2014 members of our group were given a guided tour of the Madina Masjid, the Mosque on Wolseley Road in Sheffield.  We were made to feel very welcome right from the start; our guides were very patient whilst we carefully photographed every inch of every room.  It was also pointed out that we hold the honour of being the first photography club to have been given access to this building which is another proud moment in this group's history.

We as a group extend our thanks to the management, the volunteers and everyone in the Mosque who allowed us to take their photograph as they gave prayers.  We all thoroughly enjoyed looking around the building and left with a much greater understanding of the traditions and culture of Islam.

So, without any further ado, here are some of the photos our members came home with.  We have offered these photos to the Sheffield Islamic Centre Madina Masjid Trust to freely use on their website; if you would like to use these for any other purposes please contact the member who took it for permission.  Let us know what you think of the building or our photos in the comments section below.

Thank you to our Tour Guides for the very interesting tour around Sheffield's Mosque. It's a fascinating modern building that is clearly a shining example of community spirit in Sheffield.

Castle Market 1960 - 2013

Castle Market is an indoor market in Sheffield, England. It lies in the north east of the present city centre, by the River Don, and is built on top of the remains of Sheffield Castle, which can still be seen via guided tours.

The oldest part of the building is the Fish and Vegetable Market, constructed in the inter-war period. The remainder of the building was constructed by J. L. Womersley and Andrew Darbyshire between 1960 and 1965. It has two main floors, both including small shops and stalls, and each accessible from street level. Other stores face on to the surrounding streets, while a gallery found a storey above the main part of the market contains several more shops, and access to an office building surmounting the structure. The gallery is linked by bridges across Exchange Street to further above-ground shopping areas.

Sadly it will be closing it's doors for the very last time on November the 18th 2013 and will be demolished to make way for apartments.
At the beginning of July this year I was given an access all areas by the kind permission of the security guard. Here are some photos.
