When I went to London last week(to find out if I still had a job or not) I had a feeling this might be last time I fly for a while so thought I should get a photo of Newcastle Airport from the air. It was raining and dull so sorry for the quality of the shot.

1000 jobs this week.

These girls where busy chatting about lads and make-up(proberbly!) so they didn’t notice me. I have one question….does there really need to be that much pink in the world??!!

There are many beautiful (new) buildings on the quayside but there are just as many beautiful old ones.This view is from the Tyne bridge,and I love those arches.I guess the have no use other than to look great.

Across the millenium bridge there is a path for both cyclists and pedestrians..can be dangerous sometimes!

Staying near the industrial side of the Quay,these appeared during the tall ships event last summer(they may have been here longer but I never saw them until then). I have never been able to find out what they are but I’m pretty sure it’s wood from old boats. Anyway I think it looks great.

Although Newcastle Quayside is now a hub of entertainment there is still some of the old industry there,including this scrap yard with this fantastic tank welcoming(?) people to this yard.

No Parking!

Well I guess rules are meant to be broken!

This was taken underneath Swan House roundabout and the actual building wasn’t in use anymore so I guess it was ok!

A fairly dull picture of a city centre phone store(I’m sure you would agree?)
However the thing I like about the store is the building that it’s in.It just seems unusual for Newcastle and whenever I pass it I think of Amsterdam.

This is a view taken from upstairs in the Monument Mall shopping centre.The actual Monument ,which you have seen on a few of my posts,is just out of shot on the right
