........my old mate Cllr. Jimmy Capstick who recently passed away, the flags flew at half mast on South Shields Town Hall. Incredibly he'd suffered a heart attack on the morning that I took that last picture of him, but discharged himself from the hospital in order to attend the ceremony, he suffered another one on Christmas Day.
He unselfishly served this town for over 40 years and was a great help to me when I was a young councillor.
Processed this one in Topaz Adjust but I think I got a bit heavy handed with the high pass filter for sharpening.
