Sculpture Snapping...

As you may know or indeed may not, my studio/room is inside the Newbiggin Arts Centre, Newbiggin by the sea... lately there's been some work on display by Tony Murray, who produces some unbelievable work using allsorts of stuff from string to some kind of wierd shiney paper...and tonnes of glue.

The painting on the wall of the dancers was actually used as a template for a free standing sculpture destined for Dance City, Newcastle. Once the sculpture itself was finished, Tony was kind enough to leave his work behind (probably not wanting to chip a wall away).

The free standing sculptures are currently on display in the upper floor of the main arts centre building, access here is a little trickier and it maybe worth while calling the arts centre on 01670 851833 or emailling before you set off to see them.

Hope you enjoy the photos, but they don't do the sculptures real justice, the best way to see them is up close and personal, so get yourselves down.

Ice Skating Anyone?

Yup... -9 temperatures saw the Wansbeck freeze like a good old fashioned thing that freezes!! 8:30 am found me trying to decide if i was stood on the river bank or the frozen river, so after snappin a few shots, I figured it was safer to retreat to guaranteed solid ground.

Let it snow let it snow....

FINALLY... we get some snow!! My landscape photography needs a polish up and snow scenes are always a winner. I wasn't quite expecting the amount of snow we got the other day, but it made everything look rather nice. It was suprising as being on the coast we normally only get a little smatter of the white stuff.

Here's a little view of Woodhorn church in it's new white blanket on New Years Day and also the memorial park in the centre of Newbiggin-By-The-Sea.



Happpy new yeeeaaaaaarrr!!!

Well, a couple of days late, but happy new year to anyone who might be reading this. It's been quite nice having a bit of a break over Christmas, back to it today though.

So..happy new year to everyone and I hope 2010 is a GREAT year for me personally and you all aswell! :)
