Photo-a-day 103: Glazed portico

image

This is a terrible photograph of the newly glazed portico at Newcastle Central Station. It has turned out to be a really rather lovely space, transformed from a dingy taxi rank to a light and airy entrance way. Although the excessively large copper boxes containing the ticket machines do make it feel a touch claustrophobic at points and needlessly block sight lines.

Photo-a-day 97: Thermometer

image

I often pass this poster in the window of the former Co-op department store in Newcastle, which is currently being converted to a Travelodge. Note that the thermometer appears to work backwards. I’ve never quite decided whether I think this is an oblique hook into the message, or a very strange mistake.

Photo-a-day 44: Anyone for golf?

image

I think it was Mark Twain who described golf as a good walk spoiled (I think an English writer would have said “spoilt”, but I know I’ll disappear down the internet mine shaft of interesting facts for the rest of the evening should I try to look that up). Either way, this golf course is near home, and I don’t play golf so have never ventured upon it.

We’ve had just a light dusting of snow here in Newcastle this evening. This winter (so far!) has been considerably lighter on snow than the last few, which has been a relief!

Photo-a-day 35: Leaky roof

CZ20140204064435300The roof of Newcastle Station is a marvel of Victorian engineering… but I can’t help but think that it might seem still more marvellous if it didn’t leak quite so much…!

After a week of grey skies and rain, it was uplifting to see some sunshine and a bright blue sky today!

This is a section of Newcastle upon Tyne’s old town wall, which I walked past today on my way to a meeting.
