Street - lights

Norfolk Street in Sunderland, just a little play with layers in Photoshop


My wife has been admitted to hospital with a terminal illness and I have two children and a part time job to look after. I have pre-posted pictures up until Sunday, not sure when I will be back on a regular daily basis. Just hoping that it won't be too long.

FUJIFILM FinePix F550EXR 1/8 second F/7.1 ISO 1600 5 mm
