Cookson Parade 2009, South Shields

Cookson Parade 2009 #2

I thought I’d just bumped into the cast of “Pirates of the Caribbean” as the carnival left South Shields Town Hall to make it’s way down Fowler Street, but you need to know that the theme for this year’s carnival was “the sea”.

We used to get a few pirates trading here about three hundred years ago!

Camera details: Pentax K100D, 28 mm lens, 1/2000 second, f4, iso 200
