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.

Tekathon 2014 - Charity Photo Walk

The Tekathon is a new and hopefully annual charity fundraising campaign organised by I Just Wanna Tek Gud Photos.

For our first Tekathon we set ourselves the target of £414 (£1 for every member of our Facebook group as of July 2014) in aid of The Children's Hospital Charity.

The fundraising comprised two main activities, firstly a photo walk around Sheffield where all who took part would make a donation, followed by an exhibition in Eten cafe in Sheffield launching in November 2014 where the photos we took would be offered for sale to further boost our contribution towards the charity.

The photowalk went ahead on the morning of Sunday 28th September 2014.  We were very lucky with the weather considering it was September and the added excitement of the Great Yorkshire Run which was also going on in town at the same time made this a very memorable walk.
