Snails, South Shields


Close together, tight knit, and representing strength, spirit, and community, values which exist throughout the folks of South Shields. We are renowned for our hospitality and social cohesion, or neighbourliness, and the willingness to help each other out in good times and in bad. We stick together.

I found this community huddled together in the elbow of a branch of a tree at Marsden Craggs, South Shields. I was attracted by the richness of colour and texture, a cacophony of community life!

Camera details: Pentax K100D, 82 mm lens, 1/60 second, f13, iso 200, flash fired.

    I think I’d feel right at home in South Shields.
