SLIDESHOW: In the picture with Malcolm Cook

MALCOLM Cook has been a stalwart supporter of this column for five years.

But his love of photography started 53 years ago when, as a 12-year-old schoolboy, he got advice on the art of taking pictures from a chemist who lived nearby.

Now he is very much a man of the digital age and loves to take shots of the local area.

This set includes fairground, seaside, and railtrack scenes of Hartlepool as well as views of Roseberry Topping and other North East sights.

Our thanks go to him for sharing his work and we are hoping other people will send in their own as well.
