Love Where You Live: Wakefield, A Walk to the City Centre via Instagram

If you love Instagram, and who doesn't, you tend to take a lot of what you hope to be Instagram worthy shots going about your everyday life. Or at least I do, I also take photos of things I would never have considered taking before I discovered Instagram. Hence I have over years managed to amass enough random shots that I can virtually recreate the walk from home to the centre of Wakefield, via the medium of Instagram. And not just down the one route, but down both roads that run parallel with each other and lead to the city centre from home.

Obviously, it would be extraordinarily remiss of me not to share such a journey particularly as it's taken a good three days just to find the photos on my hard drive and so, ladies and gentlemen, I give you my walk into Wakefield, you can hover over photos for a description

All photographs were taken on different times, different days, different seasons, different years, in different weathers, from different directions, and with different angles.

Do not use as a map.
