This is the nice wooden revolving door into the offices and main reception of an abandoned shipbuilding yard on the Tyne in Newcastle. I love the irony of how ornate this area of the building is, but as soon as you get through the door out of the right of this frame then you are out into a dirty oily production plant.

    I reckon Harlad and Wolffe in Belfast was similar, from the shots I’ve seen of the old demolished buildings. Interesting shot, with great color.
