Beamish open air museum

Here in the North East of England,we have a museum dedicated to the living past, it has a tramway and roadway to take you around as you wander around life as it was in the late 19th century, vehicles of the time, streets of houses decorated and furnished from the day.

This is one of the electric trams that operate around the museum,I had the pleasure of being here on another job and was around in its’ town area when the crowds of visitors had disappeared allowing me to capture this without the crowds.

Student Life

students on the streets of Durham,England,obviously discussing their plans for the afternoon, it made me smile to see the different activities here as a couple of them are off to play tennis, one has a chocolate orange, whilst the other two look like they’re off back to their digs to consume a crate of lager! iso 400 1/125 f8DSC_0041
