The soldiers in the picture above are marching past the Civic Hall leeds in Millenium Square. This company of soldiers from 1 Yorks is wearing desert uniform used in their recent tour of duty in Iraq.

My good friend Bridget came over to Yorkshire from Saint Paul, MN this last week. I spent a week showing my home county of Yorkshire to Bridget, so I got to play at being a tourist here. I will post pictures of our week and the towns, villages and people we saw over the coming days here on my Yorkshire photography blog


  1. These are very nice photographs. I am glad the men got home OK.

  2. This is just superb photography! You've caught the energy and movement of the soldiers perfectly!

  3. Wow! Your Leeds is WAY more fancy than my Leeds. What beautiful buildings! And I agree with Jacob, you definitely did an expert job of capturing the energy and movement of the soldiers. - I am looking forward to seeing the beautiful city of Leeds through your eyes. We will compare it with my humble town. LOL!


Thanks so much for visiting my Leeds in Yorkshire photography blog
and for your much appreciated comments. If you leave a question relating to today's photograph or commentary, I'll do my best to give an answer, so do come back later. Thanks.
