Urban & Street Photography

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.

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.

Graffiti, Rooftops & Street Performance

In the three years that this group has been running, and out of over 50 outings to all sorts of places around the region, by far the most popular is a gentle stroll around Sheffield city centre as the sun goes down.  There's something about this city whether it be daylight, twilight or dead of night, there is always something interesting to photograph. As usual we started at the train station, but this time we…

Here are some of the photos we came home with: MoviePsycho Sparkles by Mov1eP3ycho, on Flickr Winter Gardens by Mov1eP3ycho, on…

Sheffield's Skyline @ Night

9th April 2014 - Now that spring is here and the evenings are becoming more mild we decided to spend a few hours at the top of the amphitheatre behind the Sheffield train station to watch the sun go down over the city. Sadly we never saw the sun thanks to all the cloud cover but we still managed to get some good shots of Sheffield at night. Manadh:   Moggy:   Mesmorgan:   Here's…

Sheffield @ Night

March 2012 - Our second outing was meant to be a night-shoot in the city, however, since we failed to account for the change to British Summer Time on that evening it ended up being a walk around the city as the sun set.
