Photo-a-day 71: Ouseburn again

20120311-185129.jpg

I’ve featured the Ouseburn a couple of times before – most recently, of course, yesterday.

This picture, which shows the Ouseburn as it passes a few hundred metres from our house, is a few miles or so further upstream than this one.

The punning name of this local sandwich shop rarely fails to raise a smile!

Photo-a-day 29: Poon’s

This is a building in Gosforth that I find completely fascinating: it has so many different features that it somehow looks unreal, like something off a film set or out of Disneyland.

Photo-a-day 24: Road sign

20120124-224129.jpg

If I may be permitted a moment of grumpiness: the vogue for road signs drawn by children is irritating. This photo shows but one example from my neighbourhood.

When you consider the care and attention paid by Margaret Calvert et al in the design of clear, readable road signs, the idea of having difficult to read distracting scribbles pasted about the place seems absurd. Yet, I’m sure I’ve read in the past that such signs actually reduce traffic speed and accident rates: still, it doesn’t mean I have to like them.
