Tall Ships Race 2005

Tall Ships Race 2005

One from the archives, in 2005 the Tall Ships sailed from the Tyne and South Shields harbour, this picture was taken on the evening before sailing in Gateshead when a huge firework party attracted thousands of people. This giant ferris wheel at Baltic Square eventually made it’s way to York where it stayed for a couple of years outside of the National Railway Museum.

Camera details: Konica Minolta Dimage Z3, 45 mm lens, 1/4 second, f8, iso 50, Velbon tripod.
