I love art !I paint draw and am an amatuer photographer.My passion is realism, but I can relate to some abstract artworks, but I love to see life as it really is.
Very intriguing photo. I like the line and shapes.
thanks Blended, it’s a great place to visit, they have a permanent exhibiition of the Pitmen Painters, men who worked in the mines of Northumberland and painted for pleasure in their spare time. None of them had any formal training

Great photo George…the museum must be a very interesting place to visit…
thanks janis !there is lots to see, they also have the County Archives where you can trace your family history !
Excellent photo George. I will look for Ashington on Google Earth!
Thanks Lynda Ashington is about 15 miles to the north Of Newcastle upon TyneThey have a very strange dialect in that neck of the woods, They pronounce Ashington as “Eshintin”
I’m just waiting now for one of you pen and wash pieces of this photo to go with the book you’re writing.
cheers Brian,I took a few shots for reference and will do the pen and wash soon !
Have they moved the Monument from the car-park?Good shot George!Cheers Neil
Cheers Neil !I dont know if they moved the statue or moved the car park !
nice shot – it’s like a mechanical sculpture, quite aesthetic really.
Thanks Marion, It is a sad reminder of the Coal mineing Industry that was the Lifeblood of the North East of England !
Excellent shot George, very interesting .
