The beach by Bamburgh Castle. One of the reasons a city dweller like me heads to Northumberland. It’s one of those places which feels to carry you with it, reaching on forever under a sheltering sky. #Northumberland #seaside #landscape #bamburghcastle (at Bamburgh Castle)

Commuter’s feet; Monday morning on Sheffield station. Yes, the red suede DMs with yellow laces are mine. #sheffield #commuting #movement #impressionist #blur (at Sheffield station)
