Out wandering and wondering again as am apt to do when mojo disappears and was happily surprised to see these red doors brightening up the back of a rather dull warehouse.
Anyone that knows me will know I have a thing about angles, lines and repetition so yesterday when I was in St Annes I was drawn once again to the fencing on the beach huts..
I find the linear perspective so satisfying, bringing order, albeit very briefly, to the chaotic thoughts and plans in my mind.
Charlie at the Soup Kitchen, cooking, serving, cleaning often entertaining always with a kind word and a smile..I have lots of pics of Charlie but this back view of his shoulders seems to symbolize for me the work they take on and the weight they all carry.
I love street photography, I love capturing the unsuspecting public completely unawares, sometimes my images work often times they don’t but occasionally I see a face and I know, I get a feeling, that that is the face the will make my day worthwhile. This happened yesterday when I saw this lady in Blackpool..one of those moments when the light is right, the hair just so and she was deep in conversation with her friend. The image would probably have been better if the child wasnt in front of her but I didn’t want to lose the moment so just shot of 3 or 4 candid frames. It felt right and looking at this image am happy with the result. What a great face and fabulous hair..a candid in Blackpool.
Found this urban art work in Liverpool last week whilst out playing with friends, it was hidden behind a high fence but managed to climb high enough up to just catch it…couldn’t leave without it ’cause it reminds me of a group of very young petty criminals in the film Once Upon a Time in America….so there you have it ..Noodles, Cockeye and Patsy in Liverpool.
The beautiful central staircase at The Museum of Liverpool this weekend, black, light, curves and lines reminding me of the magnificent Bramante Staircase in the Vatican Museum.
On my way to the launch of the Preston Pride of Place Project yesterday I was once again distracted by a window and once again the window was made up of glass-blocks.. now have no idea why these windows appeal to me so much but I really do like them and the older the better…this one was tucked away down a ginnel but was especially pleasing with it’s warm welcoming light ..
and on closer inspection the glass blocks reminded me of abstract art.. am wondering if I could remove one of the walls at the back of the house and rebuild it with just glass blocks.
Might be a tad cold and me thinks the lack of privacy would be a problem but it sure would look good and as the back of my house is south facing the light in the early morning would be fabulous..wonder if I can convince husband….?? Watch this space !
