Fandango’s One Word Challenge: Neighbour

back-gardens.jpg

While my husband was up fixing something on our roof recently (and I was standing at the top of a ladder on guard duty) I took this image looking down over our neighbours’ back gardens.

I feel the different perspective really shows just how much we all genuinely live cheek by jowl here in London in our old Victorian terraced properties. I appreciate it probably looks like a total jumble of roofs and fences and hedges and whatnot but because I live here (and so know exactly whose gardens I’m looking at) I can see in this shot I’m capturing at least eight back gardens and a large communal parking/ garage area behind a post-war block of flats in the next street.

Also, as many of these old Victorian houses are sub-divided into flats (including ours) not everyone has access to any garden space at all – usually the garden space goes with the ground floor flats, so anyone living only upstairs can only look out in envy over everyone else  🙂
