The U.K. is now the capital of the world for cctv cameras, we have 20% of the worlds cameras looking at us, at all of our daily movements. Then of course the rich and famous guard their homes and privacy with a jealousy! Now and then, as I walk around this town, I find something which just plain amuses me, and this was one of those moments.
Obviously a rich and famous bird!
St. Michael’s Church
The unusual tower and spire of St.Michael’s Church on Westoe Road, South Shields is a landmark that can be seen from all over the town.
Welcome to the new version of South Shields Daily Photo, the site is still very much under construction after suffering some difficulties with Blogger, hence the move to WordPress. I hope I haven’t left anyone’s link out, and that the other Daily Photo Bloggers won’t take too long to get my new URL into their links.
A fresh start, but fraught with problems, I am hoping to eventually import the posts from the old Blogger site, but at the moment it still won’t let me sign in! So for now I will leave a link in the side bar.
St. Michael and All the Angels
The rather unusual tower and spire of St. Michael’s Church in Westoe Road, South Shields is something of a landmark, and can be seen from most locations in the town.
South Shields (as seen from Tynemouth)
I’ve titled this ‘Black and blue’ to help describe the blackened rocks of the ‘Black Middens’ on the Tynemouth side of the River Tyne, and the stark blue sky over South Shields in the distance. It’s often refreshing to look at your town from a different view point, as an outsider looking in, rather than the inhabitant looking out!
The obelisk just left of centre is the clock tower of South Shields Town Hall, and the high point to the right of centre is the Lawe Top.
I found this tree in a patch of land that I never thought existed, I was unaware of it. A small patch in South Shields in between The Lonnen and Cleadon Park’s Quarry. It looks as though one side of the family has been totally expunged – divorced perhaps?
