|The City Hall of Sheffield|
|This building looked like origami.|
|Since it is summer vacation, there was a fun fair set up in the city center park.|
|Standing guard over the city.|
We came to see the cathedral, but is was under construction/renovation. Looking at it we decided that even if it wasn't covered over, it would not be a very nice looking building. We went inside, and even that wasn't very pleasing to the eye. So, we went out onto the streets to see what we could find.
|The park was surrounded by water features.|
|Water cascading down.|
|The cascades are in memory of a man who died 160 years before they were built. He was obviously a special man.|
Sheffield is famous as the place where steel was made. A manufacturing kind of town, which has seen better days. Don't let first impressions fool you! This place is hopping! The old parts have been integrated with new, amazing architecture. Such a pleasant surprise.
|Water, water every where.|
|The winter gardens, to bring a bit of summer to a place where winter is very long and dark.|
|We have one of these yuccas growing in our backyard in Tucson.|
