St.Mary’s Lighthouse ~ May 2018

After Sophie and I had lunch at the Food Fair, we decided to go up to St.Mary’s lighthouse at Whitley Bay and have a wander around the nature reserve there. The history bit St.Mary’s Island is a very small sandstone island, just off the coast at Whitley Bay. Back in medieval times there was a chapel on the island, and it was dedicated to St.Helen. It’s worth digressing here as St.Helen was an important part of Christian history, being the mother of the Roman Emperor Constantine, who was the main instigator of Christianity throughout Europe. He made his Mum his…

Day 319~366

I took the ball to  ST.Mary’s Lighthouse this afternoon after work, and had a play. The tide was all the way in so couldn’t get onto the beach at all, but that wasn’t a problem. First though a couple of shots taken with the I-phone, got a new app called Filmborn, and this was taken with the kodak portra 400 setting.   I also did a pano for fun and because the sky was quite spectacular and then my regular crystal ball shot(s) with the old Fuji, I liked this next one best Hoping to get a superman shot tonight…

Day 278~366

I was working in Whitley Bay today, and though the morning started out grey and cloudy, the sun came out this afternoon, so I took Frego to see St.Mary’s lighthouse.  The tide was out and there was a chilly wind blowing in from the North Sea, so we didn’t stay long!

Day 35~366

Finally got outdoors with the camera 🙂 think this is the first time in the 366!  Anyway I had to go visit a friend in Whitley Bay so went over to St.Mary’s Lighthouse and took a few shots there. The first shot is the one I’ve chosen as shot of the day, but am also including some others I took, as I’ve been experimenting with various processing platforms. The Daily Shot The tide was rising and covering the causeway, so getting over to the lighthouse wasn’t possible. I was taking shots from higher up the path when this couple walked…

a little catching up to do

Haven’t been taking many photo’s of late, have been thwarted by the flu, the weather, life in general.  I did manage to sit and have lunch by the sea one afternoon, and took a series of people walking past the gap in the dunes, which amused me as I was sitting in the car at the time, had a Warhol moment 🙂   On one of my client visits I went by Ludworth Tower, I have shot this before but had another go as it may just fall down one day though it was built in 1422, so nearly 600…

Groovin’,(on a Sunday Afternoon)

Here we are again at the end of another week, Autumn is just about upon us, the trees are starting to turn quite quickly now, and they’re moulting.  We’ve had some nice sunny days, and  thats’s never a bad thing. I did have my mega busy day on Wednesday, and no time to stop for photo’s, but on Thursday I managed 10 mins to take a shot of St.Mary’s lighthouse while I was in Whitley Bay. On Friday I had a day off, and as Phil was off too so we went into South Shields to check the junk market…
