Cuban Heels by rich57

Cuban Heels

An old tapas bar in Leeds built into the arches under the railway line, sadly closed down but not renovated yet, wonder how long that'll be the case? Liked the puddles and reflections and other stuff

Had been on a wild goose chase to find a great cityscape shot of Leeds but ended up on a flyover with no pavement. On the up side, I had a great wander back into town and saw this little scene. Placed the camera on the kerb for this shot.

Also took this shot tonight http://365project.org/rich57/other-album/2010-11-17

rich, same comment to you, i really love your photo style too. no i don't mind the nickname, it's fun :) the first time i saw that i thought it was a typo, lol, until richard and aaron kept using it then I came to realized that it was a nickname, how funny is that! :)

NICE!!!!!! Such a lovely shot :)

I love the reflection and the lines. The archways in the architecture with the reflection make a great composition.

The "Tapas" name immediately caught my eye, as it's a favorite dining experience when we visit our girls in Chicago! Your angle, the water and the placement of the restaurant give it a sadly abandoned look... Nicely viewed from your chosen vantage point! By the time we leave Rome, I'll feel as though I've walked through most of it, and then we're on our way to Florence (though staying in Lucca). On our last trip over here, Florence was our favorite Italian city, so we're looking forward to returning!

Wow, this is great; love the reflections in the water
November 18th, 2010  
also a lovely shot, I like the low perspective you had on your shots last night!
November 18th, 2010  
Did you get wet knee's taking this shot?! Great perspective, like the other one, the rain and the reflection, and the lighting, all fabtastic!

Amazing - it looks like it is flooded! Fav :)

The word tapas caught my attention too! What a sad picture. When this opened I bet it was full of excitement and noise..and delicious aromas! Now just a sad reflection of itself........brilliant tones and a great perspective.
November 18th, 2010  
Wow!! i must say, Rich, your photos get better and better. This is stunning
November 18th, 2010

Very nice, gorgeous photo!
November 18th, 2010  
You catch some of the best bits on your way to work, driving in sucks for me! Like the reflections and the lines running parallel at the top with the railway line
November 18th, 2010  
@azza_l Yeah not having a drivers licence has an upside! I had taken the afternoon off though so wouldn't normally be round here on the way home from work.
November 18th, 2010

November 18th, 2010  
It almost looks flooded. I especially like the bokeh in the water.
November 18th, 2010
