Spring has well and truly-sprung.

Desperately trying to catch up and bring the blog up to date. I have been very busy of late. Here are some of my favourites from the first half of May 2017. Hope you enjoy!

1st May – Bluebells

This close-up was taken in my front garden.

4th May – Central Arcade, Newcastle upon Tyne

04 May

Set in the heart of Newcastle’s historic Grainger Town, Central Arcade was restored in 1906 and is a fine example of Edwardian architecture. It is also home to the best music store in the world, ‘Windows.’ This is my own opinion, of course!

6th May – Morpeth Twilight

This photograph was taken from a friend’s balcony, overlooking the town centre of Morpeth at twilight.

  • Samsung GX-1S
  • 30 sec exposure
  • f/16 105 mm
  • ISO 200

9th May – The Couple, Newbiggin-by-the-Sea

09 May.jpg

Situated on the coast at Newbiggin-by-the-Sea, this sculpture, called, ‘The Couple’ was opened in 2007. The photograph shows a miniature version of the main sculpture which is mounted upon an artificial breakwater in the bay. Behind the couple, the ancient parish church of St Bartholomew and Newbiggin Heritage Centre can be seen.

10th May – Newcastle & Gateshead Quays

10 May.jpg

An interesting view of the quayside at Newcastle taken from Tyne Street (appropriately enough!). The Gateshead Millennium Bridge, Swing Bridge, Tyne Bridge and High Level Bridge are seen spanning the River Tyne with the SAGE Gateshead and Baltic Centre on the left bank.

  • Samsung GX-1S
  • 1/250 sec exposure
  • f/16 45 mm
  • ISO 200

11th May – Bennett’s Walk, Morpeth (Blue Hour)

11 May.jpg

Middle Greens was opened in the late 19th century/early 20th century to house the working class. Bennett’s Walk follows the south bank of the river. I quite liked how the Court House (1822) was illuminated in orange and contrasted against the plain houses. Sadly, the 1960s flood wall is a bit of a monstrosity!

  • Samsung GX-1S
  • 30 sec exposure
  • f/13 105 mm
  • ISO 200
