Today, I walked down to the Quayside with my camera. Just for a change, I went with the 70-300mm zoom instead of my main lens. Which turned out to be a Good Thing, as I was able to get in a lot closer to this nifty Space Invader.
Smaller Space Invaders have been appearing around Newcastle, to the delight of photographers, the amusement of the artist responsible, and the annoyance of the police who have threatened the artist with arrest once or twice. It’s all connected with a new exhibition of urban art at the Baltic, entitled Spank the Monkey. Unlike most Baltic shows, this one sounds like it might be interesting and fun, so I’ll be going along at some point. I’ve got a load more pictures to sort out, and I’ll get round to them as soon as I can.
