Photographer's Note

The building which you see in the foreground, the Moot Hall, built in what is called a Greek Revival Style (1812) was a courthouse, and later a venue for civil weddings. It was purchased in 2019 by the company owning the Vermont Hotel next to it.
The real reason why I took this photo was a nice alignment of three most photogenic bridges spanning the River Tyne. All three have an element of arch in them, but each bridge operates in a very different way:
The Millennium Bridge (white, in the far left) tilts. In fact I have a picture showing it tilted, "open", taken at the blue hour here:

The Tyne Bridge (green, in the centre) is fixed but it has a very high clearance for the ships to pass. It is the same design as the Harbour Bridge in Sydney.
The Swing Bridge (the smallest white/red arch in the right) swings sideways. I have never seen it in action.
I have of course a whole series of photos showing the bridges from various angles. Most of them should be in this theme:
