Day #2720Title: Wooden Pelt
Location: Quayside, Newcastle-upon-Tyne
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 17-40mm EF f/4 L USM
Notes:  Another walk along the Quayside today, this time my attention was grabbed by this peeling old door on a garage. It reminded me of an animal hide – hence the title.

Day #2718Title: Porsche Tag
Location: Dinsdale Place, Newcastle
Camera: Canon EOS 100D / 24mm EF-S f/2.8 STM
Notes:  Today we had another long walk looking for street art and graffiti around the city. There are several legal sites for artists to paint – this is the one at Dinsdale Place, reflected in the window of a parked Porsche. It makes a great shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #52 -Wheels.

Day #2713Title: The Amber Nectar
Location: Tyne Bank Brewery, Newcastle-upon-Tyne
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes:  Our long walk this afternoon culminated in a visit to the beer festival at the Tyne Bank Brewery – good job too, it was thirsty work! We met up with friends for a lovely Lebanese meal and then the four of us went back to the beer festival for a final pint and to watch the ISS pass over Newcastle. We waved!

Day #2613Title: St. Peter’s Bascule Bridge
Location: St. Peter’s Basin, Newcastle
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 8-15mm Fisheye EF f/4 L USM
Notes: We lucked out with the sunshine again and decided to visit St. Peter’s Basin for a walk this morning. I liked the shadows falling on the deck of the bascule bridge, distorted in my fisheye lens.

Day #2612Title: The Big, Red Wind Vane
Location: Royal Quays Marina, Newcastle
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: We made the most of a sunny morning and took a walk around Royal Quays Marina while the sun was out. This is a big wind vane which turns as the direction changes. I liked how the bright orange stood out from the blue sky behind.
