York at Christmas

December 03, 2011  •  Leave a Comment

Even though it seems like years since i moved from my university home of York (5 actually), york holds a special place in my life. Moving away from the geordie nation up in Northumberland way to start my learning experience i ended up in the chemistry labs of York University. Little did i realise that i would gain such a connection to the place and it turn in to my second home. 

I suppose the main reason for this would be meeting my wife and some of my very close friends. The buildings and feel of the city are calming and welcoming. 

At this time of year, i.e. in the Christmas shopping chaos, myself and my wife tend to head back to York to do our shopping. the mix of high street stores and smaller more specialist stores (i’m sure you are all thinking of the clothes shops but i’m on about Travelling man for comics and the Yorkshire Book shop, sad sin’t it!).

Having visited Leeds and Birmingham city centres in the last couple of weeks we had expected to be greeted by a mass of steins and wooden ornaments but this was still in the process of being built! in many ways this was a blessing. is it really time for a Christmas market in mid November? 

in my time at York i didn’t use my camera as much as i should have so i do enjoy going back and capturing some more memories.
