So I’ve now completed half of my ‘A Photo a Day for a Year’ challenge. Some really good photos this month I reckon, including watching the sun set from atop a volcano, Edinburgh’s magnificent Scott Monument, walking above the clouds on Scafell Pike, England in the sunshine and giant fish! Enjoy the photos and as always I’d welcome your feedback…

    Love the bridge graffiti sheet, where about in Sheffield is it?

    • Jon Maiden says:

      Hi Amy, it’s just up the road from the giant new Tesco’s at the bottom of Spital Hill. Just follow the road towards Meadowhall and it’s about 500 metres further up. Or just follow the Five Wiers Walk path out along the River Don from the centre and you’ll see it as it meets the main road. It’s fantastic graffiti. I love Sheffield for all of its street art. Happy graffiti hunting! Jon
