About the Author

My name is Will.

Every year I research different places to go and my ‘I should go here’ list gets longer. I add it and then start thinking of the best way of getting around when there, be it cycling, backpacking or vehicular.

The Exploration Journal is my way to document my travels to these places and my development as a photographer.

Night Photography in Newcastle

I was in Newcastle for work and decided to take my camera along in case the opportunity arose to do some photography. By the time I finished it was dark but this meant instead of sleeping I could wander around a strange city in the dark and attempt my first go at night photography.

Starting from the hotel in Gatehead, I walked towards the huge flour mill and now the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art, then onwards over the Millennium Bridge.

I walked up and down the river for a bit looking for perfect reflections of the lights on the water and the best way of including the bridges in one photo.

A boat moored to the promenade was perfectly positioned to capture both the bridges and the reflection in the water.

After the river, I walked up towards All Saints Church and back along Tyne Bridge. The bridge was a bit worrying, with crude poems scribbled on the railing to convince people not to jump. I finished the walk looking out over the river towards Sage Gateshead.
