Barbara and Ron

By mrswoolybill
Meet the group, or at least part of it. I recently took our U3A Photography group to Dunston Staiths, the vast Victorian loading quay for the barges that shipped coal away from the Tyne. It's the largest wooden structure in Europe.
There's a very satisfying combination of fresh paintwork (maintained by volunteers in the face of regular arson attacks) and weathered timber. A few more uploads will follow.
NB This was a separate visit to Bill's Staiths uploads, he stayed at home that day to look after workmen.
And yes, this was used as a location for Get Carter.
As a postscript, our oldest photographer Marcus featured on the front page of the local paper this week, see here .
Thanks for looking,
Moira

Nikon user photographs other Nikon user. Photographic nepotism of the most blatant kind.

This should be a caption competition. Ron is definitely
expressing an opinion about something. SmileSmile
Great portrait shot Moira, with the addition of a tog
in action. Nice work.
