That Matt Cardle moment

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 3 September 2012 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

Taken at the recent Matt Cardle concert at the Bents Park, South Shields, I don't think our resident rocker was a big fan :-(

Oh......and I thought I'd share this shot with you all today.

PENTAX K100D 1/1000 second F/5.6 ISO 200 330 mm (35mm equiv.)
