Hello happy Bank Holiday Monday, hope you’re all enjoying it even if the weather today isn’t so good.
We’ve had some good weather lately though and I’ve been out enjoying it and taking some photos of my favourite place Newcastle Quayside and also around Newcastle. I’ve said it before in previous posts that I love this city and lucky to have grown up here. The city is beautiful to look at, I love the Quayside, there’s lots to do and see and the people are friendly. It’s the home of Newcastle United of course who are back where we belong now in the premiership. Let’s not forget the nightlife it’s not voted the party city for nothing. It’s also been voted lately the best place for families to live.
The Quayside Seaside is back and I’ve managed to go and enjoy the sun there and also visited the Baltic Centre. The Baltic is a contemporary art centre and at the moment the Rodney Graham exhibition is on. He’s an Canadian artist and his exhibition combines works in film and video with an extensive presentation of his photographic images. The Baltic has some viewing platforms with amazing views of the River Tyne which is where I have taken these photos. One platform has a great view of all the nesting kittiwakes on the Baltic, so if you like bird watching it’s perfect for you. If you haven’t visited the Baltic yet the I recommend you do especially if you love art and photography.
I’ve put together a new YouTube video and uploaded it today check it out. I Love My City
Hello, Spring is here and I’m a little late but it’s gonna be May ha.
It’s that time of year when the weather starts getting a little better after winter and the April showers. The flowers start blooming and everything starts looking a little brighter. I like this time of year it’s the warm up for Summer, the weather gets warmer, it gets dark later and my birthday is in April and I always take a week of work to enjoy my birthday week. It’s a good time of year to start going out and about more. Going to the park and taking photos. Where I live we have two big parks, Leazes Park and Saltwell Park. There’s always a good chance of talking some good photos in those parks.
I just thought I would share some of my favourite photos I’ve taken of spring in those parks with you and a little video.
I’ve made a video of my spring photography. Check it out Spring Is Here
Hello, I love photography it’s a hobby of mine but I’m looking into taking it more serious now. I want to take a course and I’m going to look into my options. I’m also thinking about making prints, canvases etc of my photos to sell. As I’ve had some interest from friends about my photos of Newcastle and it could be a good way to get my work out there.
As for now I’m just going to continue taking photos of different places and things I like.
I’ll blog my work on here from time to time and also on Instagram and Flickr. You can also follow me on other social media.
