Newcastle night life

Night time!

Many thanks to those members of the Curly’s Corner Shop Message Board who submitted pictures for last month’s challenge which was to provide a night time shot to reflect the happiness of summer in South Tyneside and the north east of England.

This was the picture which I chose and it was sent by Audrey Fada of South Shields and shows some of her family enjoying a “hen night” for the girls up river in Newcastle upon Tyne. Audrey is the young blonde girl in the centre and on her left is her daughter Lauren and on her right her step daughter Kelly as they enjoyed themselves in a Moulin Rouge themed night out near the Centre for Life.

South Shields Town Hall

South Shields Town Hall

Apologies, folks, this post is one day later than I intended, but I simply ran out of time yesterday as I struggled to help fit my new kitchen and take in the Cookson Parade in South Shields. I’ve chosen this picture from the batch submitted by the members of Curly’s Corner Shop Message Board after I asked them to provide pictures with a “summer” theme. This stunning summer sunset showing South Shields town Hall silhouetted against the red clouds was sent in by Graham Slesser of Westoe who had to climb into his loft space to get a view over the roof tops, he just couldn’t resist the temptation. It was shot with his new Nikon DSLR but he cannot remember if it was set to aperture or shutter priority, I don’t suppose it will bother us too much, it’s a smashing picture Graham.

light trails, South Shields

Light Trails

This picture was chosen from amongst those submitted by the members of Curly’s Corner Shop Message Board, the busiest community forum in South Shields with close to 198000 posts!

I had set them the task of photographing “curves” before Christmas and this was the winning shot of South Shields’ man Brian Riley showing the light trails from the evening traffic at the end of Slake Terrace in South Shields, near to Kennedy’s bar, in the background you can see the buildings of the Port of Tyne Authority. I think this is a fine shot from Brian.

Brian shot this with his Nikon D90 using a shutter speed of 30 seconds and an aperture of f22 on his 105mm lens.

Hope you all had a great Christmas day!

Cranes, River Tyne, South Shields

Brian’s well captured picture was my favourite amongst those submitted by the members of Curly’s Corner Shop Message Board last week (a forum for Sanddancers and ex-pats which now hosts more than 185,000 posts!)

Camera details; Canon D90, 200mm lens, 1/40 second, f5.3, iso 200

Toad, South Shields

Say hello to Mr. Toad

Found this little fellow hopping around in my friend’s garden in South Shields a few nights ago, couldn’t resist the chance to take a snap, and he posed patiently and proudly too. Bob said it was the first time that he’d come across a toad, and he doesn’t even have a pond, nor can he see one nearby either.

Camera details: Pentax K100D, 82mm lens, 1/60 second, f13, flash, iso 200
