Photographer's Note

The Olympic references are more and more common in photos from the UK and I feel like I am being a bit behind the main stream. So here you are: these are Olympic Rings which I found in Newcastle upon Tyne. Of course the Olympics are far away from here but I guess the whole country is enjoying the spirit.
I have already presented in my TE gallery a view from similar POV taken at the night time (click here). The Tyne Bridge, which serves as a support for the Rings, is a smaller version of the famous Harbour Bridge in Sydney. Build by the same company from Middlesbrough where I currently live. The sharp spire in the left belongs to All Saints Church. I have also presented a photo taken from the Tyne Bridge itself but the clouds were quite different on that day (click here). Once I wrote that there are not many photos from Newcastle on TE but later I realized that the problem is that people upload photos from this city to a wrong county. Newcastle indeed belongs to the region called Northumberland, which people usually select, but formally it is part of a smaller metropolitan county called Tyne and Wear. Both Tyne and Wear are the names of rivers.
