Two Buildings

Foreground, background; blue, green; traditional, contemporary; blue collar, white collar; industrial, service sector; commercial, residential … two buildings, many perspectives.

As other parts of industrial West Yorkshire wane, Leeds just seems to roll with the times; a city in constant transition.

When I processed this off the cuff shot of the Indigo Blue building it was the green dome of the Alf Cooke Printworks that caught my eye; one more part of the traditional Victorian Leeds fading into the background of a regenerating new Leeds.  A few months later I turned the tables with the green dome now dominating Indigo Blue.  The Printworks lives on as part the Leeds College Campus.

As the scenes below show, old and new Leeds are blending together creating a contemporary modern city with a traditional Victorian heart.
