Today is World Toilet Day, a UN initiative to highlight the global sanitation crisis. Over 4.5 billion people around the world live without a household toilet that safely disposes of their waste. The consequences for health and child survival are severe.
These public toilets are in Bramhope, Leeds.
Data from the Great British Public Toilet Analysis indicates there are about 9000 public toilets left in the UK. Find your nearest convenience at The Great British Public Toilet Map.

Had to stand on top of step ladders leaning against the ivy hedge for this one, it took nearly an hour. Managed not to lose balance or get arrested for snooping.
Over 20 artists living in Roundhay invite you in for 2 days this weekend during the annual Roundhay Artists Opens Studios event.
I’m one of three artists who will be showing our work at St Edmund’s Church, Lidgett Park Road, LS8 1JN.

An art lover’s house in Oakwood, Leeds – early one morning, the end of August. The trampoline is going soon, but the owners and I were glad it features in the drawing. Can you see the Witch on her broomstick weathervane?
The last day of the summer holidays…
