Thanks Historian! Wow that place has changed... Drastically! These are a huge help, thanks again! If we ever do have a forum meet-up I'll owe you a pint for this (or at least a bag of pork scratchings...).

Yeah and I just love the second to last one too. I mean just look at the sheer diversity of architecture from over hundreds of years that you've got in that one pic. Is there another view like it anywhere in Britain ?

And when you consider that the photo is being taken from the top of a Cathederal too, I have to say that it is almost urban perfection. The only thing missing is a skyscraper.

Photos

I would like to comment on these fantastic photographs of the Tyneside area.

There are some good photographers out there in our own little corner of the world. In addition, we have such a rich and colourful townscape to capture a whole host of moods, enchantment, and sheer architectural beauty.

Nevertheless, I must say that personally I don't go much for photographs, which are edited later with a whole range of adjustments from subtle toning to full-scale demolition of the original captured shot. I find it far more pleasing to look at a picture that has been taken as it was seen through the lens. I think this originality, particularly in architecture is so important, and even more so for images where we are capturing buildings of historical significance. I find it a shame that so many people are buying 'doctored' photographs, which, in years to come, will give a false impression of what we see with the naked eye today.

I am grateful that on these boards this type of image is minimal, compared to other popular photo hosting websites.

I have enjoyed very much looking through the photography on this board, well done guys and gals.

I like the country but no, at the time I was winding my mate up with it because he hates Scotland so it was a funny thing to do.

I was going through my photbucket album today and saw that I had that picture which I wasn't sure if I posted on here or not, so I thought I'd post it in anyway, great building though don't you think?

Anyway if their is a country that I'm obsessed with then it's Canada.
