I am an amateur photographer in the North East of England. I've been interested in photography ever since I can remember. I got my first camera in the 60's and my first SLR, a Pentax ME Super around 1978. I enjoyed developing and printing my own b&w and colour photos back then. I now use a Canon DSLR and edit in Lightroom and Photoshop.

The Fireworks were held at Leazes Park, Newcastle to celebrate the finale of the 'Welcome Students of the World 2016' which ended 25 days of events to welcome 80,000 students from 152 countries to Newcastle upon Tyne.
