Urban and Street photography
Welcome to Newcastle Cityscapes, this site is dedicated to my love for street photography and urban cityscapes. The images are mainly taken in the city of Newcastle and around Gateshead also some images are from other locations, but this site mainly focuses on the city of Newcastle.
“Color is everything, black and white is more.” — Dominic Rouse
Cityscape and street photography are a passion of mine and I love the rain especially when it's in a city. Combining them together is perfect for photography, the contrast between natural and artificial light is magical. The weather creates a different atmosphere and looks to the surroundings, the surfaces of buildings reflect more ambient light from the street lamps and shop windows and to the neon signs creating a dark and moody cinematic image, suddenly the ordinary has become extraordinarily beautiful
Don’t shoot what it looks like. Shoot what it feels like.
“The marvels of daily life are exciting; no movie director can arrange the unexpected that you find in the street.”
I only know how to approach a place by walking. For what does a street photographer do but walk and watch and wait and talk, and then watch and wait some more, trying to remain confident that the unexpected, the unknown, or the secret heat of the known awaits just around the corner. – Alex Webb
Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still.

The most colorful thing in the world is black and white, it contains all colors and at the same time excludes all.” — Vikrmn
What I like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce.
