May ’13 – Review

I’ve had another busy month for photography. It started off with me still working at the BBC’s semi-deserted Television Centre for a few days covering the Local Elections, and I’m still trying to catch up with the backlog of urbex images I made there. I promise to publish more soon! But I have been able to show you some of the Face Down Tuesdays I made there, namely the Dangerous Dentures EditionPaint Shop Pro Edition, and Silent Escalators Edition.

May meant Mono MayHem was back! A month of mono image making, as well as my usual Photo A Day shots. Here’s one which was nearly selected for 30th May, a view of Dunston Staiths, taken on a murky bike ride along the Tyne:

I found some more great subjects for my 50 @ 50 project too. I made #18, #19, #20 at various locations close to home, and #21 in Newcastle, where I spent the last week of May visiting Alistair.

During my stay, we embarked on various northern outings, including a  Tynemouth Cycle ride:

A visit to the North East Aircraft Museum for Planes, Trains & Automobiles with the NPWalk folks:

And a Rural Ramble Around Urpeth geocaching with Alistair – here’s another butterfly we saw:

So, as you can see, plenty of varied subjects during the merry month of May. Here’s hoping Flaming June will live up to its name in weather and photographic potential.
