the gutters run red


the gutters run red, originally uploaded by Pig Sty Ave.

What's going on here, then? Bloodbath on the streets of Newcastle?

Actually, there's ironic intent because I was reflecting on how I could go about clutching a camera without serious risk of robbery, and violence tends to be limited to daft lads taking drunken lunges at one another after a lot of boozing. (Outside the home that is. I don't know what the state of play is on domestic violence, but suspect things are much better than they were a generation ago).

So. We're at peace and relatively safe. When you see some of the shit that goes down in some parts of the world, we can at least be grateful for that.

Click on the photo, and then on "all sizes" to see a bigger version. The texture of the street and the liquid are really good close up: the Nikon D50 is coming into its own at last.
