A vibrant place

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 7 December 2012 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

You can probably tell that I'm trying to clear my hard drive of older material, I haven't been shooting a lot of new stuff recently as I patiently wait for some real winter weather in South Shields.
This was taken at the Washington Galleries shopping centre just a few miles down the road from here, I really like the extra width at the short end of the lens on this little Fuji compact.

FUJIFILM FinePix F550EXR 1/125 second F/3.5 ISO 125 5 mm

There is a hint of desperation in that message and in the colors . . I wonder if you re-visited, the same scene would be there but faded and torn . . ?

Crikey, how old?! I haven't seen power shoulders on a woman since the 90's!(Apart from that woman on Dragon's Den, who is obviously trying to bring them back-and, thankfully failing!)
