I, actually, enjoy it a lot more with the grey sky. This image is fantastic. The orb being a fountain perplexes the world out of me. Either you are incredibly skilled at you photograph manipulation to exclude the water from the orb without distorting the texture of it, or the water portion is inside of the orb. Either way, great hiding the such from us. You did sensational work, my friend. Congrats on your DD.
I pass through every so often on a train, and the changes are so obvious even from a distance. I think the last time I was actually *in* Sheffield was a couple of years back, and I think after seeing the third pub I used to go drinking in with a different name... I think my heart broke and I had to go hide in the station
You're probably right though, some of the changes have to be for the better, but it's hard accepting your hometown transforming with the times
