Photography of Urban Northumberland

Urban photography is defined as a study of life within towns and cities including architecture, landscape, portrait, street or any object within that sphere.
Most of my photography takes me out of town. Or at least out of the village where I live. I just love being in the countryside. Lately however, I have had a yearning to break away from my normal genre and try something different.
Of course here in Northumberland we do not have big cities with towering skyscrapers to photograph and the bustling city centres, we have villages and small towns. But even here there is a rich tapestry of life for the photographer. I hope you like my new page.

Back streets of old Berwick

Back streets of old Berwick

The fog was rolling in off the sea as I headed up the stone steps and the scene conjured up all sorts of stories in my mind. This was Berwick and so Smugglers came to mind but it could easily have been a scene from Victorian London....
