So the following day, we were in Sheffield. I wanted to take a photo of "Turners View" from Meersbrook park. We found this fabulous street art by "Faunagraphic" - on of our favourite Sheffield artists
The walk to the top of the park where the view of Sheffield is, is very steep!
But you are rewarded with a very good view of the city from up here.
There is a print of the original painting by Turner on an information board, but I remembered that they currently have the original on show in the Millenium Galleries, so after we had dropped the young man off at the railway station we went to have a look at it. It's tiny - but very lovely. In fact the whole exhibition "Picturing Sheffield" is excellent - so much so that we are planning a re visit.
We were treated to a glorious sunset in town.
This unusual building is now the students union for Sheffield Hallam University. It was originally the ill fated museum of popular music which didn't really take off.
And I spotted loads of these fantastic window paintings in all the trendy bars and cafes - I don't know which artist has done these but they are great.
We hurried past the delightfully lit Lyceum....
and on to meet friends who had obtained some cheap tickets for the Ice Hockey match for us.
A full day, doing nothing in particular, but lots to entertain us all.
