Day #3856Title: The Pearl
Location: Newcastle-upon-Tyne
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: Here’s another Newcastle shot from higher up – this time taken out of the window of Commercial Union House looking north along Pilgrim Street towards New Bridge Street. I’m not sure which deluded fool named the “monstrous carbuncle” ahead The Pearl, but they seem to be a bit of an optimist!

Day #3855Title: Late Night On Pilgrim Street
Location: Newcastle-upon-Tyne
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: It’s been a long time since the last one (2011) but today was the start of BarCamp Nort East #5. Alistair was organising, with a little help from various local geeks (and me). It was a great success, and felt like the BarCamps of old with a really friendly atmosphere and plenty of talks on varied subjects. I attended sessions on SCUBA diving, LEGO Robots which draw random Comic strip outlines, and weird Japanese food & drink, to name a few. Late in the evening we got to have a unique look at the city centre from the roof of the building. Here is the view along Pilgrim street with the junction of Market Street.

Day #3854Title: Hiding In Plain Sight
Location: Quayside, Newcastle-upon-Tyne
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: We were supposed to be taking it easy today, as we have an early start tomorrow, but we ended up spending most of the day in Newcastle having a very sociable day and meeting up with various friends in several different pubs! Ooops. Eventually we stopped for some dinner before making our way back home. This was the view from the Quayside just as I was heading back to Manors Metro station. I always like the view of the Shiny Slug (Sage in Gateshead), especially at dusk when it is lit up from the inside. The shiny reflective roof seems to melt into the sky as if the slug is trying to hide in plain sight. I thought it made a good shot for 52 Weeks 2018 – Topic 32, A Great View.

Day #3853Title: Green Fingers
Location: Armstrong Park, Jesmond, Newcastle-upon-Tyne
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: We went for a wander in Armstrong Park today, seeking the shade of the woods around the river gorge. At one point, I spotted this vibrant patch of mare’s tail (Equisetum arvense) waving to me in a patch of sunlight, so this had to be the pic of the day.

Day #3850Title: Bright Idea In The Evening
Location: Walkergate, Newcastle
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I spent too many hours on the road today, with some long delays, but I eventually arrived at Alistair’s house and was relieved to finally get out of the car, which had been an oven for most of the journey. Thankfully it’s a bit cooler up in Newcastle than it has been at home. These are some outdoor LED lanterns hanging in Alistair’s garden, which provide some after-dark colour.

Day #3722Title: Strange Attractors
Location: Newcastle, Tyne & Wear
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I’m going to be deliberately tight-lipped about this one. Suffice it to say, it has not been fiddled with (apart from levels) so what you see was entirely done in camera. it makes a good shot for 52 Weeks 2018 – Topic 16, Strange.

Day #3720Title: Concrete Jungle
Location: Manors, Newcastle-upon-Tyne
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: It was a bit of a cold, grey afternoon so I took the Metro to Manors and then the elevated walkway across the Central Motorway to get to an evening event venue close to the Metro Radio building.

Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: Alistair and I took a walk into town today for an afternoon event. On the way, I spotted this white Birch tree contrasting starkly with some industrial architecture behind.
