Las Vegas on Tyne

Station Road, Hebburn

Christmas decorations in Hebburn

This is Station Road in Hebburn with Fountains Park on the right hand side, just a few miles along the Tyne from South Shields. It’s beginning to look like the strip in Las Vegas don’t you think? Another few years and we will have done it.

Our Christmas displays in the borough’s shopping centres are certainly getting better each year with the help of our sponsors.

Camera details; Pentax K100D, 28mm lens, 7/10 second, f9.5, white balance tungsten.

  1. Ha … I am just trying to reconcile Las Vegas with South Shields !

    Thanks for your visit and comments by the way.

    At 7/10 of a sec after the pubs have opened, you have a very steady hand {grin}.

  3. Stalybridge next door to Hyde is nicknamed StaleyVegas these days because of the number of clubs it has.

  5. I’ve been wondering why Christmas needs to be celebrated with lights and how it began and why it is spreading like a virus around the world. Your lights are still pretty, but as you say, it will grow. The photo is very nice.
