Photo-a-day 48: Angel of the North


Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

This post was published more than 6 years ago

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. Not everything that is old is bad. It can be interesting to see how views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured.

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might very well have changed in the 6 years since I wrote this post. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find pretty embarrassing today.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...


I made a quick detour from my usual commute to capture today’s subject, The Angel of the North. It’s not the world’s greatest photo, but I was slightly embarrassed by whipping out my iPhone while surrounded by more photographers with more equipment than seemed reasonable for something that’s already been photographed so much.

Interestingly, a car park has appeared nearby, which wasn’t there last time I visited… although that was probably some years ago! If you’re in the area, I guess it makes it considerably easier to make a quick visit – which is highly recommended!
