South Shields Town Hall

Joe McElderry projected on Town Hall

South Shields’ X Factor finalist Joe McElderry had his image projected onto South Shields Town Hall yesterday evening before ITV’s “X Factor” was broadcast to the nation. The South Shields student is one of the hot favourites to win ITV’s annual talent show and the whole town is now backing him to become a major star and this series of images were projected to encourage locals to remember to vote for him to ensure his continued success.

Dawn at Seaburn

This week’s well deserved pick from those submitted by the members of Curly’s Corner Shop Message Board is this wonderful early morning shot taken just down the road from South Shields. It was taken by South Shields Man Brian Riley, and I think it’s a wonderful local shot to show the world.

Camera info: NIkon D90, 18mm lens, 1/30 second, f16, iso 100

Come and see South Shields in a new light

Since moving my daily picture posts on to a new free host at Animus3 I’ve been astonished at the reception, the interest, the leap in page views, and the plaudits. Aminus3 hosts thousands of similar photoblogs in hundreds of countries around the world, yet in a few short months their editors have twice chosen to put my pictures of South Shields in their daily “spotlight” which highlights the “interesting and the extraordinary”. I’m a little taken aback to be honest. Additionaly my pictures of South Shields have also been featured on their front page twice too.

If you haven’t done so already, why not go to South Shields Daily Pictures and see what all the fuss is about.

I’m a South Shields bloke, proud to live in South Shields, I love the place and enjoy showing off it’s best bits to the rest of the world. The photoblog has the traditional ease of navigation (left to go backwards and right to go forwards, and top of the page to see the whole lot in thumbnails) which makes the site very easy to use and find your way around. If you like what you see, please be kind enough to consider leaving a comment.

This week I have been showing Remembrance Day pictures and these will be followed by fireworks – enjoy!

false Bay South Australiat

False bay/Black point, Eyres Peninsula, South Australia

I’ve chosen this picture from those contributed from the members of Curly’s Corner Shop Message Board this week, it was submitted by Cheryl Abrahamson and depicts False bay/Black point in South Australia near where she lives in Whyalla. I chose it because it is so synonymous with the coast line around South Shields, Marsden, and Whitburn.

According to Cheryl this location is one of around three breeding grounds around the world for the giant cuttlefish and lies about 40 minutes drive from her home town. To me, it does not look that far removed from Whitburn beach!

The picture was taken on Cheryl’s Nokia mobile phone.
