Leeds Cathedral

Leeds Cathedral Internal

This picture is a view of the inside of Leeds Cathedral, consecrated as Saint Anne's Cathedral here in Leeds.

In the normal way of things I would have long since posted pictures of Leeds Cathedral, but there has been some restoration under way and every time I looked at it there was scaffolding and or workmen.

It is the Roman Catholic Cathedral of the Diocese of Leeds, and is the seat of the Bishop of Leeds.

On a totally different note, today 23 March 2010 it is 100 years since the birth of Akira Kurosawa (黒澤 明 or 黒沢 明 Kurosawa Akira?, 23 March 1910 – 6 September 1998).

Apart from photography, which I came to later in life, I have had a love of film since I was a small boy. Partly this was either directly or perhaps less obviously indirectly due to the 30 films that Akira Kurosawa directed over his long movie making career.

I still today have a love of Samurai films, but Kurosawa was much more than a maker of films about samurai. Google logo today 23 March is changed in honour of the birth date of Akira Kurosawa and deservedly so.
