City shots for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge

Observations in Newcastle

a random collection of thoughts whilst looking at my city shots

Roads
A bustling city filled with busy lives
Roads and transport carry us on our way
One-ways systems ease unfettered chaos

Buildings
Shiny new buildings rise, replacing some less-loved
But classic stonework never fades from view
Books and culture nurture hungry minds

People
A woman pulls her suitcase, rushing train-wards
A girl darts across the street while the light is red
People meet for lunch outside the theatre

Transport
Sustainable transport’s on Newcastle’s streets
with cycles in their racks outside the library
and – at least here in town – cleaner, greener buses

Newcastle upon Tyne City Library
City shot #1: old and new architecture side by side
City street scene
City shot #2: dashing across a city street while the traffic lights are red
Quayside bus passing Newcastle's Theatre Royal
City shot #3: green transport to the cultural quarter

Do take a look at the cities and city structures others have chosen for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week.
