The big switch on
Christmas lights turned on in South Shields
Mayor and Mayoress Cllr. Alex and Brenda Donaldson with “Tommy the Trumpeter” preparing to switch on the Christmas illuminations in South Shields. They would soon be joined on the stage by Liz McClarnon, the 27 year old former singer with all girl group Atomic Kitten, she was our guest of honour and had the job of switching the lights on.
It looks like snow, it was cold enough for snow, but it was fake, a foamy mixture blown into the air by a machine.
Come back tomorrow for another picture of this event.
Camera details: Pentax K100D, 35mm lens, 1/60 second, f5.6, iso 200, flash fired.
