The area around Byker Farm, under the bridges, is an interesting one for the photographer and the historian. Here were the only glass works in the land, in Henry VIII's time, and here were the quarantine stables, when Newcastle was a great port. Here today are many rusting boats, steep cobbled streets, an urban farm, the exits to the old underground railways which brought coal to the port, artists' studios, and a riding school filled with skewbald ponies for the children. All good material for the lens to see.
I like the plain white sky, and the plain dark bridges in this shot. Nice and simple, but strong.
