Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 10 February 2013 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

An HDR made in St. Paul's church, Jarrow, which was home to the Venerable Bede.

Three hand held shots put together in Photomatix.


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.

Pentax K100D 1/20 second F/5.6 ISO 1600 18 mm
