Wall

This is a section of mosaic at the back of the Old Merrion Centre Market, Leeds.
There are Large mosaic’s here. they have been here for a long time. They really are stunning pieces of outside public art.
They are situated on the outside corner, of the back of the Old Merrion market.
Wade Lane – Merrion Way road junction.

It is quite a busy walk-way in and out of Leeds City Centre, but these murials get ignored and passed by without a glance from folk. They have been getting neglected over the past few years. There is nothing wrong with the mosaics, maybe one or two squares missing here or there, but nothing that a good clean wouldnt sort out.

Today, when i was taking photographs of the very large mosaic picture on the wall (about 5 meters long X 3 meters high, somewhere round there), a couple of early 20’s girls were walking by and one said the the other, ‘Whats he taking pictures of, theres nothing there!’!!!!

I hope i have done this piece of fantastic wall art, some justice with this photograph

    This is a stunning mosaic, I think we as photographers are lucky as we see so much more than most!.

    Excellent Richie! That’s typical… “What’s he taking pictures of”. I always know I am on to a winner when someone says that. Must admit I haven’t looked at this mosaic for ages. Well done!
