The Tyne Bridge
I took this picture one afternoon recently when I’d taken the children away from South Shields to go shopping for a birthday present. We’d parked the car on the Gateshead side of the river and spent most of the afternoon walking in the city centre, it’s amazing how quick you can get around on foot once you’ve climbed the hill from the Quayside, and that’s without using the very modern Quaylink bus service.
However on the way back the heavens opened causing everyone to scurry about in great haste to escape the rain. In the background we can see the iconic images of the Tyne Bridge, the High Level Bridge, and the Swing Bridge, a view which will be very familiar to locals.
The picture was converted to black and white in Photoshop and light touch of a blue tint added.
