Grey is the Colour

Following on from my post the other day, I thought I’d contrast it with this shot of the subways that run by the Merrion centre in Leeds.

subway at Merrion

This was a throwaway image really – not one of my best – but it follows on nicely in contrast to Sunday’s post.

This is quite a large subway with several entrances. This particular entrance is opposite the Merrion Centre and next to Leeds City College’s Technology Campus. Like the Merrion Centre it is clad dull, grey concrete and hardly inspiring. It is all blocked off and apparently used by the council for storage now, but in it’s hey day it was the largest public toilet in Leeds – which is one of the reasons it was all blocked off.

I was hoping that these would be opened up again and made brighter once the new arena is built, but I have a feeling these will remain blocked off.
