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.

Check the agenda to join us on our next adventure

There are few things in life worth photographing more than distinguished gentlemen riding motorbikes, so when we found out that there would be a collection of said chaps going on in our own city of Sheffield we simply had to get down there.

We had arranged to meet at the Steam Yard cafe just off Division Street at 9am, which as it turns out was a little early.  When we got there we saw a lone Harley parked outside and thought that perhaps we would be spending the next few hours taking detail shots of this magnificent machine.  Not long later though a small group of well turned out chaps pulled up on their motorbikes, giving us more hope that we had indeed arrived at the right place at the right time.  Not long after that we heard a distant rumble, then as if out of nowhere came tens if not hundreds of bikes from all directions.  In the space of about ten minutes it had gone from a quiet Sunday morning in town to a very well dressed bike show with amazing photo-opps everywhere we looked.

We had a great time milling about chatting with all the lovely people who had oiled up their pride and joy and donned their suits for a worthy cause (find out more about that cause here: http://www.gentlemansride.com/).

When the time came for the riders to start their journey we made a run down to Charter Row, staked out some spots and got photos of the riders going past.

So that's the story of the morning, would you like to see our photos?  If you want to share or make use of any of these photos then click on the link below it to go to the photographer's Flickr page where you can contact them for permission.

Yorkshire Sculpture Park

January 2013 - Our first outing in 2013 was a gentle stroll around the beautiful Yorkshire Sculpture Park. We managed to spend a fairly decent amount of time out and about until the rain came along and put and end to the photography, fortunately YSP also has a nice coffee shop!

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.

Vulcan Bomber
