Christmas time in South Shields #4

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 15 December 2013 in Documentary & Street and Portfolio.

Building up the carnival atmosphere in South Shields town centre as the Christmas lights were switched on.
Kind of fun as you move around shooting pictures and daft lads decide to play to the camera and lark around :-)
Can you smell those roasting chestnuts?
