Ocean Road, South Shields

Ocean Road (through the gold window)

An odd quirky shot with odd colours. This is Ocean Road in South Shields as seen in a reflection of the gold mirrored windows of “The Beach”, a popular town centre bar. Oh, and it was raining.

From the left, a mainly empty shop which used to house a supermarket (now relocated to Coronation Street)), the statue of South Shields born John/James Simpson Kirkpatrick (the man with the donkey), Kirkpatrick’s public house (formerly the Marine School)

Camera details: Pentax K100D, 28 mm lens, 1/15 second, f8, iso 200

  1. Lovely shot. Yours is one of my favourite photo blogs, Curly. This picture is of great interest to Australians too.

  2. What a wonderful picture, Curly, I love Ocean Road. It has been too long since I walked down it. I must have passed the statue hundreds of times and not really noticed. The previous comment about it being of interest to Australians sent me scurrying to Google and I have read the whole story, fascinating.
