Celebrate and Shade

I can't believe I have fallen so far behind, so here is the first bit of catch up.

Celebrate
There were plenty of celebrations this month. It was my birthday - no photos of that. Millions of people celebrated England getting to the semi-final of The World Cup - no photos of that, either. The Baltic Art Centre swathed Grey's Monument in the coloured ribbons of a "Workers Maypole" in what was called "an act of celebration that brings focus to the values at the heart of the North and pays tribute to achievements for equality" which I thought was a bit long-winded, but the result is fun.


And at the north end of town there have been hundreds of young people in gowns and hoods, with their happy relatives, celebrating the successful conclusion of their university studies.


Shade
This is an old photo, from September 2013, but I like the way the light and shade work together to draw the eye down to the white van under the arch at the end of the lane.

Comments

Great choices. I really like that 'shade' picture.
Thank you.
Good for you! My plans to catch up have remained just that- plans.
*g* I still have some more to do.
I love the idea of turning Grey's Monument into a giant maypole.

Ad yes, that picture of light and shade works really well.
Yes, I thought it was a really fun idea.

Thank you.
