Bricked Up Beauties

Odd though it sounds, sometimes I do find a strange kind of creative beauty in the (generally man-made) ugliness we see all around us… I just have to look a bit harder, that’s all! 🙂

Homes and Houses

A row of Victorian terraced houses, a three-storey town house, a post-war block of flats and a modern apartment block – oh, and a House of God, just for good measure 🙂

Corner Shops Big and Small

The Victorians seem to have been big on building local corner shops into the fabric of their terraced housing, where the entrance is set into the cut-off corner itself, on a diagonal to the rest of the walls – we actually live in a flat where the original building was once a Victorian corner shop plus accommodation (converted to three individual flats in the 1980’s) 🙂
