Mooring Staunchion

One of the eye-catching features waiting for you as you walk out along the harbour wall at Berwick upon Tweed is this little red mooring stanchion. The fading red paint contrasts beautifully with the pale flagstones of the wall itself, and you can clearly see where the paint has been worn and the metal underneath polished smooth by mooring ropes.

Have a great weekend, and I’ll be back on Monday with a week of shots taken in Berwick upon Tweed as I made my way around its historic walls.

Handrail and Harbour Wall

As you walk along the harbour wall at Berwick upon Tweed, the wall curves round out into the North Sea and out towards the lighthouse at the mouth of the Tweed.

Looking Along The Harbour Wall

Late afternoon on a beautiful autumn day, the harbour wall at Berwick upon Tweed is a popular place to walk along. You get great views south down the Northumberland coast before you turn the corner and head out towards the lighthouse.

Mercedes Car

Whilst I was sat on one of the benches in the harbour at Berwick upon Tweed, the driver of this Mercedes car decided to park up right next to me. I think she was off to a tennis game or something. Anyway, with my view blocked, I thought I’d have a go at photographing the car instead 😀

300,000 Views

Posted by Stuart Herbert on October 26th, 2010 in News.

300,000 Views

I’ve been uploading to Flickr for exactly 3 days short of four years, and this morning I reached a satisfying milestone: 300,000 views. I’ve no idea how that compares to anyone else on Flickr; I’m sure that it’s just a small step along the way. But it sure feels like a nice number to have reached 😀 Especially when I think back (and this is going back over … oh … two decades plus change now) at how rubbish I was at anything remotely creative at school.

My next target is to get to 500,000 views … and to continue to work towards achieving a minimum of 1,000 views a day. To get there, I need to get much better at my photography, and to continue to find an audience for my work.

Speaking of which, I especially want to thank the local community journalists at both Guardian Cardiff and Your Cardiff for their encouragement over the last few months. Much of my photography is about where I live, and both Hannah and Ed have done a great job with connecting with the local blogging community around here and featuring our work on their websites and in their news stories. Strong local journalism is an essential part of a healthy democratic society, and you only have to contrast their efforts with the anonymous and largely absent BBC local news team to see what a difference they’re already making.

And I need your help too. You can help me, by leaving comments here on my blog or on Flickr to tell me what you like and what you don’t like. If you like something, why not share it with your friends on Flickr or Facebook? Chances are they’ll like it too.

Lighthouse and Harbour Wall, Berwick upon Tweed

Welcome back after the weekend!

This week I’m continuing the theme looking at the harbour area of Berwick upon Tweed, where we went on holiday earlier in the year. When you walk around the riverside path and into the harbour, the harbour wall and lighthouse yonder immediately catch your eye. The banding along the wall creates a very strong pattern, and certainly made me want to walk out there to see what the lighthouse itself is like.

Another year, another great PHP North West conference organised by Jeremy Coates and his team at Magma Digital and the PHP North West User Group.

This year, I went along with my camera to try my hand at conference photography for the first time, in between attending plenty of great talks.

These are the best of my shots from the pre-conference socials on the Friday night before the conference.
