Hudson Street, South Shields

Extra, extra, read all about it. by Curly

Posted on 2014-04-06

Rushing to buy a copy of the Shields Gazette in Hudson Street, South Shields. Did you know the Shields Gazette is the oldest daily provincial newspaper in the UK?

I wonder about the telephone box - does it get used at all these days? Most people have a mobile phone, but I guess it is there in case of emergencies. Sixties housing with shops on the ground floor, businesses failing, shops and leases for sale - rainy dull winter, same story all over the UK.

Not Quite Flight

Not Quite Flight by Avian Grey

My first real sighting of one of this season's heron chicks - he does not look that far from flying already. What courage it must take to step off that nest for the first time 60 feet up !

Sea wall runner

Sea wall runner by Doug

Posted on 2014-01-23

Grabbed this shot while walking on the beach on Sunday, I thought I showed the new sea defences we have at Burnham that saved us from any severe damage in this last lot of storms. They were constructed after we had a devastating storm in December 81 that broke up the old sea wall and flooded the town.

High Street Exeter in the rain,
it seems to be raining all the time but there is still beauty in the weather even if it would seem sensible to be at home in the warm.

Floodwaters on the moor 5

Floodwaters on the moor 5 by Doug

Posted on 2014-01-14

Taken at the weekend from the top of Burrow Mump which is a hill above the village of Burrowbridge. The river Parrett runs through the village and burst its banks, although the waters have gone back a little the main road which runs across the levels from Glastonbury to Taunton is still totally blocked by flood-waters.

Neal's Yard, London

Neal's Yard by Curly

Posted on 2014-01-06

This is Neal's Yard in the Covent Garden area of central London. Without doubt it is the most colourful oasis that I have ever found in the streets of London. This little courtyard, off the beaten track, is home to a strange set of alternative and eclectic businesses, free back rubs, holistic therapies, skateboard clothing, vegetarian eateries, micro-brewery pubs, acupuncturists, you get the idea.

More of the quarry sculpture. 'Falling Man' on the left is an early Antony Gormley. Mrs G sits on a stone pouffe and warms her hands in the fireplace which is sadly looking a little worse for wear, probably because someone tried actually using it :0

Lumiere Durham 2013

Durham Cathedral #3 by Curly

Posted on 2013-12-01

The finest part of our trip from South Shields was seeing Durham Cathedral lit up by huge projections from the "Crown of light" feature. Truly spectacular, this was the reason why the crowds were so deep and dense on Palace Green.

This was my favourite picture from the night, and an appropriate one to end the series with. It was just the variety of patterns displayed on the cathedral which made this eye catching for me.

A Percy Cup by Richard

When the Hunt meets in the square they are offered sausage rolls, sandwiches and a Percy Cup. It's half whisky and half Cherry Brandy. The kind of courage you need to go racing across fields and fences on the hunt.

Great North Run South Shields 2011 Red Arrows

Broken hearted Red Arrows by Curly

Posted on 2011-10-24

The RAF Red Arrows made this heart cloud in memory of Flt. Lt. Jon Egging who was tragically killed when his Hawk trainer crashed the previous month.

I think this is a suitable tribute to the man, and his widow who took part in the race, and it brings together speed in the sky, fleet of foot on the ground, and the team ethos and spirit which encapsulates much of what the Great North Run is about. It's almost a family thing up here.

Hudson Street, South Shields

Depression by Curly

Posted on 2014-04-05

I have shown much of the best bits of South Shields over the years, after all it's my home town and I'm proud to live here. However, there are other parts which will eventually look as good as the best bits, it just takes a little more time!

Like many UK towns we suffered from an attack of the "eastern bloc" of architects in the 1950s and 1960s, they built a succession of rectangular concrete blocks and towers for people to live in (if you can call it living)....

Windy day on the beach

Windy day on the beach by Doug

Posted on 2014-02-26

Taken a couple of weeks ago while walking on the beach the storms were on the way back in and causing the waves to rise. This I suppose is what I love most about walking on the beach in the winter in Burnham, just the occasional person a crazy as me to enjoy the wind and peace that only the beach at winter gives. I don't have a problem with the kids and holidaymakers enjoying it in the summer as long as I can have it in the winter (and perhaps a little less rain to give me time to enjoy it !)

Old shipyard in Sunderland with climbing wall

Abandon all hope....... by Curly

Posted on 2014-02-03

The very disturbing look of an old abandoned shipyard in Sunderland, the city suffered all of the same industrial losses as South Shields in the 1980s and 1990s, shipyards and coalmines all slowly turned to dust.

There is some form of regeneration to provide a little hope though.........some entrepreneurial spirit has created a climbing wall there!

Ashton Memorial 1/7

Ashton Memorial 1/7 by Jules

Posted on 2013-09-21

Lancaster's Ashton Memorial was commissioned by Baron Ashton (a British businessman and Liberal Party politician) as a memorial to his late wife. Designed in the Edwardian Baroque style by John Belcher and completed in 1909 it has been described as "England's grandest folly". Built with stone from Portland (Dorset) and around 150 feet tall it dominates the Lancaster skyline. The first floor outdoor viewing gallery provides superb views of the surrounding countryside and across Morecambe Bay.

Moonrise and Venus, Morecambe Bay by John Leech

Posted on 2012-12-13

We've had a spell of cold, clear mornings which coincided with the waning moon together with Venus shortly before sunrise. Yesterday should have reached perfection with the thinnest crescent moon possible, but unfortunately we had a blanket of fog engulfing the whole bay. This shot was taken the day before.

The exif on this shot is misleading. 30 seconds is obviously too long for a moon exposure as the shape would distort, and at f5.6 iso200 it would completely blow. The upper portion of the

Rhossili - Wild Horses

Rhossili - Wild Horses by Philip

Posted on 2010-07-05

The coast around Rhossili (Gower, South Wales) is renowned throughout the world. I was lucky enough to do a coastline walk with my wife and her brother in late May. The weather was wonderful. On our walk we stopped for a snack by a field near Horse cliffs (I kid you not it is called that!). These wild horses were not impressed and charged round in a circle for a number of minutes.

Cwm Idwal - Closest I'll Get To Heaven 8/16 by Jules

Posted on 2014-01-22

Cwm Idwal is a hanging valley in the Glyderau range of mountains in northern Snowdonia and is a spectacular product of glaciation, surrounded by high crags, screes, moraines and rounded rocks, with a lake on its floor (Llyn Idwal). Cwm Idwal comprises volcanic and sedimentary rock folded to give rise to the distinctive trough-shaped arrangement of strata known today as the Idwal Syncline.

St Petersgate Bridge

Little Underbank, Stockport by sithenah

Posted on 2013-04-06

In 1860, Stockport Council authorised the construction of a glazed and cast-iron covered market in Market Place. Little Underbank lies in the natural ravine of Tin Brook, to the south side of the Market Place, which caused problems of access to the market. In 1864, it was decided to build a bridge over Little Underbank, linking the Market Place with St Petersgate, to provide an easier approach from the west of the town and Edgeley Railway Station. St Petersgate Bridge was constructed in 1866-8.

The Old Croft House

The Old Croft House by Les

Posted on 2012-06-13

This abandoned croft house on the Isle of Eriskay is typical of many such houses in the Outer Hebrides. After the First world War simple 'modern' houses were built to replace the old stone and thatch black houses. They were often modeled on the black house with just two rooms and extensions and additions were made later using whatever materials were to hand, in this case corrugated iron. Eriskay is home to a breed of ponies found living wild only on this island and a couple can be seen...

"Out of the Blue"

"Out of the Blue" by Ian Bramham

Posted on 2011-03-23

I was lucky enough to get a full days photography last Saturday with John Leech and Mike Spriggs and we ended up at the lighthouse at the Point of Ayr in north Wales at dusk.

There were quite a few photographers there but the anticipated sunset never really materialised and everyone but John and I had left the beach as night fell. I'm glad we didn't leave with the others as 'out of the blue' we were lucky enough to witness the most amazing moonrise that either of us has ever seen.
