This is just a selection from my Sheffield collection of pictures, which
can be worked into a personalised collection of Sheffield pictures, or indeed
blended with images from other cities to create an artwork which is entirely
meaningful and relevant to the individual.
Please note that the size, colours and quality of the pictures on
this page have been reduced for web viewing and do not accurately represent the
detail and vivid colours of the actual photographs
