Since today (Wednesday, June 29) is recognised by some as World Camera Day, we wanted to take a moment to celebrate Wearside’s beauty with some of your own fantastic photographs.
The Sunderland Echo readers have a keen eye for a superb shot – and dozens of you answered our call on social media for your best photographs taken in and around the city.
If you’re in need of a midweek pick-me-up, take a look at our picture round-up.
Thank you to everyone who shared a picture. Click here to add your own to the post and you may see them shared in future.
