Autumn Leaf in A Leeds Churchyard

Picture of an autumn leaf in a Leeds churchyard.

I stopped off at the churchyard of St John the Evangelist in Wortley, Leeds yesterday, I had been wanting to get a few more pictures from this churchyard for a while.

This last week or so it has been pretty damp and also overcast, so I took some close up photos of some of the headstones and memorials. Not sure why but I quite liked this fallen leaf that was laying on this old headstone that was now laid into the grass.

Just to give some point of reference to the date on the headstone, in the year 1834 these events happened….

a. Hanging in chains upon a gibbet after execution is abolished in England.
b. 1 August – Slavery abolished in most of the British Empire.
c. 14 August – Poor Law Amendment Act states the able-bodied cannot receive assistance unless they enter a workhouse.

How I got Here...
I was walking down to make a coffee in Saltaire at Massarella's Art Gallery where my friend at a shop. I was mooching about there... My good friend Ellen used to a medical rep. She then said i dont want to worry you but I have called 999 for a ambulance... She then said look at the mirror in bathroom.... then.. I woke in hospital...
Then 5 months later... I have become Disabled.. Stroke, I lost ... job, flat, not mention my car... now at last I look much better...
So much for dreams... I ran with that for about 5 years, every day taking a photograph to put on site.
