Postcard From Newcastle

Probably one of the friendliest towns we have visited, the few of us that made the trip to Newcastle Upon Tyne were pleasantly surprised by how nice everyone we met there was. A stark contrast to terminally angry and miserly Londoners. A small and walkable town of less than 300,000 people, Newcastle boasts a beautiful quayside with some stunning bridges, the most imposing of which is the Tyne Bridge, opened in 1928. The River Tyne is also cradled by the beautiful glass Sage Building and the Millennium Bridge, as well as the Baltic Gallery of Contemporary Art. Within the city, Grainger Town is the historical heart of Newcastle Upon Tyne with stunning architecture designed in the 19th century by Richard Grainger. Amongst the Georgian and Victorian buildings are the now familiar array of shops and eateries that make up a typical city centre. But one can still be impressed by the Theatre Royal and Grey's Monument.We made time for some art at the Laing Gallery and Biscuit Factory, the latter of which is mainly contemporary work for domestic ornamental possession. We also enjoyed St Nicholas Cathedral, small but no less ornate.And of course, we had to see the Angel Of The North on our way out. All the images here were taken with my usual travel complement of the Olympus E-M5, 12-40mm F/2.8, 45mm F/1.8 or 60mm F/2.8. They have been composed and processed in my usual postcard style. In the coming days I will post more from Newcastle, including some dusk and sunset shots from the quayside, more from inside the Cathedral and some architecture.
