One quick picture…

I can tell I’m not going to sort out all of today’s pictures this evening, but I thought I’d put this one up as a start. It’s the statue of Cardinal Basil Hume, which stands outside St Mary’s Roman Catholic Cathedral in Newcastle, just a short walk from the station.

I’ve been meaning to walk along there and have a proper look, as it’s a very interesting piece of work, with lots of lovely texture. Much more lifelike than the traditional statues in other parts of town. I was mildly surprised to find that the statue and its surrounding memorial garden were opened in May 2002 – I knew I’d left it a while, but I didn’t think it had been nearly five years[1].

Anyway, this is one of the better pictures I got today – I was aiming to have the statue in sharp focus with the Cathedral blurred in the background, and I think I just about managed it.

More pictures to follow, including the latest in the Westgate House series.

[1] Waits for someone to make the inevitable remark about memory and age, or some such :eek:
