Armed with my wide angle and 200mm lenses, camera and tripod I started off in the car to go to Marsden in South Shields thinking I would have all afternoon to concentrate on taking good photos. How wrong I was...... Traffic jams into South Shields held me there for nearly 1 1/2 hrs. My favourite spot at Marsden closed off due to subsidence and the steps down to the beach cordoned off. I ended up having to go down by the pier in South Shields itself. So much for all afternoon to take photos.
I have to say though, I look forward to the weekend, and weather permitting, getting out into the fresh air. Being couped up at work all day during the week and unable to get out sometimes gets me down, but it also makes me appreciate my weekends more too.
