Magic Moments 16/3/15

Last night Dee and myself went to the Newcastle Arena and saw Spandau Ballet. I don’t normally do this but I bought more expensive seats than normal as it was a band I wanted to see since the 80’s. We were very shocked when we got to our seats. We knew we were close, but didn’t think we would be as close as we were. It was a great night. Totally coincidental that it fell on this date, but its a Mothers Day that Dee won’t forget in a while.

God, give me strength

This is what happens when a cordless phone gets jammed in the mechanism of an electric reclining chair. Dee was wondering why the chair was making a god awful cracking and creaking noise.

Edinburgh snapshots

These are a few photos taken while in Edinburgh recently. Most of these ones were taken on my GoPro which is why some have a fisheye effect.
We had a lovely time. The weather was far better than forecasted. Such a beautiful place to get away and wander all the little side streets. An amazing place for those who love photography.

What's Happened? What's Happening?

Pics taken out and about this week in Newcastle.

Armed with my trusty GoPro camera this week, I snapped a few pics while out and about in Newcastle this week. Please ignore the fisheye effect. Its what a GoPro camera does.

Greys MonumentGreys Monument in the centre of Newcastle

Newcastle Odeon 2This is the old, now empty, Odeon Cinema. If theres any Robson and Jerome fans out there, this is where they filmed  some of the ‘Saturday Night At The Movies’ video.  It can be seen here http://youtu.be/S_Qon-Udlhw
