The sense of involvement comes over strongly in your series here - it is so much more than 'passing by'.

This really popped off the screen, my eyes roamed about the scene and I had a great big smile on my face.

Ted from South Wales, United Kingdom

when you see this, and the rest of the series, I have to chuckle at your brush with the boys in blue...after not finding what they expected, none of these are conventional either and they were probably lost for words...but all in all, it looks like South Shields has been very well entertained again this summer!

9 Sep 2011 5:22pm

@Ted: Ted, you have to understand that the "Bobby" was part of the Punch and Judy show! :-)
