AIM & CLICK - Crow on Valley Bridge

Crow on Valley Bridge, Scarborough

The walk to and from my studio takes me over Valley Bridge. I love the iron work of this bridge... Mr Crow didn't enjoy me following him along trying to get a good image as he tried to hop out of range.

AIM & CLICK - Sunderland Echo Stand

Sunderland Echo News Stand - Blandford St.

I'm seemingly completely obsessed with all news stands nowadays! I couldn't resist snapping this little setup last Thursday as I passed... I particularly like the aesthetics of the poster being stuck on with parcel tape & possibly a tatty magnet. I'm a little perplexed as to why the Thursday has a '-1' following it. It can't be a reference to the date as it was Thursday 9th, maybe they edition the headlines throughout the day... if anyone can enlighten I would be very much grateful.

EVENT - Saltburn Arts Fair

Great day today at Saltburn Arts Fair as thousands of people flocked by... Lots of lovely conversations & sales. It was a bit rained out at the end of the day as all the stallholders dashed to get their wares packed and away before they got drenched!
