The old bag's shot

By mrswoolybill
Taken on West Walls, the narrow lane that hugs the inside of Newcastle's medieval city walls.
This is the opposite view to Bill's upload . I liked the line-up of rectangles.
Thanks for looking,
Moira

Excellent idea to compose the shot and repetation of shapes to lead to the subject...

I'm here on a brief visit escaping from the ironing (that's the problem with going away ... ) Thanks to Dave and Chris for the UAs, that was a nice surprise and to everyone who has visited.

I initially thought "That's not a very complimentary description of Bill"!! 😁 However, on seeing Bill's it all became clear...well framed, Moira 👍

More alarmingly is this proof that Big Brother is watching us? I think we should be told.

Thanks again folks, and thanks Graham for the UA.
