The bridge hotel

  • Description

    I took a series of photographs early one cold morning on the 5th of February 2016. What follows is one of the series. I took each of the pictures around Newcastle upon Tyne and all of the pictures were within a five minute walking distance of where I was parked. Some of the images are dark and sinister and some are well lit and alive. I would appreciate any comments on the varied images that I took on this morning. This atmospheric black and white could have been taken at any time in the last 50 years, that's if the modern van and wheelie bins in the photograph hadn't of given it away. The castle keep is to the left of the photograph, the moot hall is to the centre and the bridge hotel to the right. The bridge hotel in Newcastle is well worth a visit if you are in Newcastle. It's got an old world charm about it and you may be lucky enough to see a celebrity or two. The quayside is only a short walk down some stairs from here. Stairs that I may add, that have been here for centuries and probably used by the inhabitants of the castle.
