Photo of the Week: Salt Mills at Saltaire

We make visits to northern towns as part of the Life in Northern Towns blog and we revisited Saltaire outside Bradford in West Yorkshire recently.  The place is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and it is a beautiful place in a Victorian urban model village way.

This photo is what I call a happy accident.  We were in the Salt Mills at Saltaire, which is part Hockney art gallery, part shopping and part food experience.  As we were walking down the stairs I looked out the window and spotted this view.  With the magic of Instagram and the Sutro setting I turned the raw picture into this glorious Italian influenced image.  Maybe it is the perspective, maybe it's the colour palette or maybe it's the distressed nature of the photo, but I absolutely love this image.

Every time I go back to Instagram I spend time looking at this picture thinking 'Wow, how lucky was I to get this?'.  I took other fab pictures of Saltaire which can be found at Pinterest.  If you love taking pictures of Victorian architecture and like visiting model villages Saltaire is the perfect place for you.  I will certainly go back.
