The Mariner public house, South Shields

The Mariner, South Shields

Seems a strange place to leave your skiff almost a mile from the sea!

The name of the pub (The Mariner) on Mortimer Road, South Shields, reflects the town’s long association with the sea, we are, after all, the birthplace of the lifeboat. However this little rowing boat is serving as an attractive planter outside of the pub’s entrance, there is another one just a few hundred yards away at The Old Ship. I’ll show that another day.

The sky was grey, colourless and without character when I took the shot, so I’ve rendered a bit of blue sky in Photoshop.

Camera details; Pentax K100D, 28mm lens, 1/20 second, f22, iso 800

  3. …a nice five shots or so. I liked that lake done on the 55mm. How about B&W for the grey days?

    BTW…..Oh, yes, the Saturday Pictures and what-not. Superman and Roy Rogers….and the Lone Ranger. Even Ming the Merciless and Flash Gordon.
