Harton and Westoe Colliery Welfare

This social club for the benefit of former coal miners, their families, and the surrounding community was massively refurbished and rebuilt, and had it’s official re-opening last Friday. I was priveleged and delighted to be invited to attend to record the opening ceremony where I discovered that South Shields newest sports facility has one of the best boxing gymns in the region!

Whether training for amateur or professional bouts this gymnasium has all of the equipment, coaches, and medical facilities that could possibly be needed, and it was being well used when I visited.

  3. What an interesting perspective! Like your composition – those gloves just jump out at you – you feel in the fight yourself 😉

  4. A remarkable photograph that captures the feel and look of a downed champion. Gloves up. Useless. Nice job on this one.

  5. I feel as if I’m going to get punched in the nose!
    Those gloves right in the foreground are perfectly positioned.

  7. The gloves perspective and transition into a grainy picture give this image high value. One of the best I have seen here so far.
