Beware



I don't know who's idea this was, but it can be a little disconcerting when unexpected. Lurking downtown in the alley around the corner from Whitlock's on Court St.

I need your support, see my latest post at South Shields Daily Photo

Photographers rights in the UK and worldwide are under increasing threat and we need to make a stand now!

Unless something changes dramatically, this will be the last ever post at South Shields Daily Photo.

The grasshopper is a metal sculpture by Wayne Chabre of Walla Walla, Washington. He is my sister's brother-in-law and has done many sculptures at the University of Oregon. Gargoyles are on one of the buildings and there are some on the Arichitecture building and outside in the flower beds of the library.
