Blue Carpet

Outside the Laing Art Gallery ,we have what is known as the 'Blue Carpet'. As you can see its actually the pavement but its made to look like a badly laid carpet. I quite like it although its more a speckled grey than blue but I guess that wouldnt have sounded quite so good! For a
a closer look go here

North Shields Street Art.

I dont think we have enough of this sort of thing in the UK.It is around but you really have to search to find it....I came across this one because I decided to drive home a different way yesterday! I think it really adds to buildings when its done this well. Posted by Picasa

Angel of the North.

Another view of the North East that has been shown again and again.Hopefully this is a slightly different look at what has become an icon of the area(although a lot of people really hate it!) I think its ugly but still love it. Posted by Picasa

Tynemouth Metro station Market.

This market is held every Sunday at Tynemouth Metro station.As you can tell it used to be an ordinary railway station but after years of standing idle,it(like many others in the area) were renovated for use when the Tyne and Wear metro was opened.You can pretty much get everything here from clothes to cd's,dvd's,and books,and even home cooking.

Blyth Staithes.


Blyth has a bad reputation which is maybe a little unfair.
Some parts,like here,are great.A popular spot with people
out for a walk and fishermen alike. Posted by Picasa

The Beetles.















I spotted these beetles(?) painted on the walls and road of a street leading down to the quayside last summer.
Never worked out why but I think they look great anyway! Posted by Picasa

Big wheel.













This big wheel was at the quayside before Christmas and although I think this could have been a great picture I feel its too dark at the bottom and there isn't enough detail because of that...still,thought I'd post it anyway. Posted by Picasa

Best venue in Newcastle.















The Cluny,down by the Ouseburn,maybe slightly off the beaten track ,is one of my favorite bars.They also put a lot of bands on from,country to punk and soul,and it even has an art gallery--and you cant say that about too many pubs!! Posted by Picasa
