Viewed from the Ouseburn, fifty or more metres below, especially through a wide-angle lens, the Newcastle Metro bridge over the said Ouseburn presents an airy spectacle against a December sky even if it is only industrial concrete, unlike Byker Bridge beneath whose towering brick arches I stood to take this shot. The audacity of the local graffitist in tagging the bridge is astonishing, compensating with his daring for what he lacks in artistic originality. V2 with the Lumix with added contrast for Mrswoolybill whose monitor would not reveal the joke in V1 blatantly enough.
I have no idea what Team Potato is - a clique of lads who race sofas, perhaps? - but at least the perpetrator can spell better than a recent Vice-President of the USA.
