The Sage Gateshead just looked more stunning in this shot in black and white, not colour.

Playing with levels on this left me with this shot and this deliciously-coloured sky.

Playing with pictures week: Black and white

This picture of the Pitcher and Piano was in colour to start with, but I think it’s more striking converted to black and white.

You can see the original on twitter here.

Tenin-esque shot of the Millennium Bridge

It was really, really, really, REALLY cold last night. But I went out anyway to take photos for you lot. Self-sacrifice, eh?!

I think it was worth it!

This is a Tenin-esque shot – Tenin being the founder of Paris Daily Photo; and the inspiration behind the City Daily Photo community. Eric Tenin is known for taking photos at strange angles and from different levels and I’ve been playing with the technique again. I’m really happy with this shot. It might be technically better if I had a better camera, but I like it as it is, graininess and all.

Quayside Market

Looking down a bit from yesterday’s shot you can see the first (or last?) few stalls of the Sunday Quayside Market. Was down there last weekend (… obviously). It was scorching hot. Loved it.
