Here is my attempt at a photograph of the Millennium Bridge, the Baltic & Gateshead Quays and of course the River Tyne in black and white.


Camera Canon 350D
Lens Canon 18-105
Exposure 20 seconds @ f11
I thank Debbie for writing the words you see below especially for this photograph.

Magnificent Quiet Calm (tribute to Photo57)

I am just a child of Victoria, Australia.
Yet when I first glimpsed
David’s photo of the Millennium Bridge
I gasped at its magnificence!

So too the Baltic and Gateshead Quays
In textured black and white;
They are quietly elegant,
A truly wonderful sight!

Throughout the wonderful world
I wonder at all cityscapes and skylines.
Yet wouldn’t have guessed that one day
I’d be writing of a never-visited River Tyne!.
