Taking photo’s at lunch time. Walking on the Newcastle Quay. This couple blissfully embraced. I cropped it tighter as the original had more of the Tyne on the left which unbalanced the image. Converted to black and white.

The trip to the Netherlands on the DFDS ferry gave us a good view of Tynemouth as we slowly sailed past. Here is the North pier where the river Tyne meets the North Sea.
I was born in the Netherlands and lived there until I moved to the United Kingdom in 1999.
I have been working with computers from very early on. I have a degree in Mechanical Engineering but always worked with computers. This went from Computer Aided Design to Engineering Databases and then more generic computing, internet programming and smartcards. Most of my current work involves creating web applications and websites.
I’m currently living in the Northeast of the United Kingdom with my wife and two children. My hobbies are photography, reading & watching movies and creating websites.Learn More
