And on the Town Moor… errr… cows may safely graze.

Or something….

There is a stag in a field behind Benton Asda. I cannot tell you how strange this is.

55 degrees of scaffolding

I suspect the residents of 55 degrees north haven’t been too impressed by things being knocked down and put back up recently. But I maintain that that’s what you get for living in the middle of a roundabout. No?

An old building, a newer building and an apology

fenwicks waterstones

Emerson Chambers – one of my favourite buildings in Newcastle. So ornate, and yet so few people seem to look up at it. Next to the Fenwicks building, which suffers from being right next to Emerson but it’s a nice building in its own right. Definitely photo-worthy.

I’m really sorry about the last ten days or so. These days I’m OK as long as I keep a couple of days ahead of myself but if I get behind I really struggle to catch up. There will be news soon about something that will help with that! But I just need to get a few more ducks lined up first :)

Oh, and letting my toddler get his fingers all over my camera lens really didn’t help. All the pics I took for about a week were awful :(

Fruit ‘n’ veg

fruit n veg

Always think the fruit and veg on this stall at the bottom of Northumberland Street look amazing. The bananas in particular look really nice, and my son is a big banana fan! I’ll have to try it sometime.

Demolition in Gateshead

gateshead demolition

A total contrast to yesterday’s picture! Some of the grotty old blocks of flats in Gateshead are coming down. I can’t really say I’m sorry – but watching this sight the other day I did think that watching these buildings come down, chiselled away piece by piece, must be strange for those who have lived there.

Tree, Rising

rising sun tree

This tree can be found in the park of the Rising Sun. I took the picture on 1st April – the lack of green leaves is astonishing….

Glorious colours, no? Sometimes the photos pretty much take themselves :)

Tynemouth weekend: clock

I’ve always wondered and never remembered to investigate. Does this serve any purpose other than ‘being a clock’?!
