Tall Houses

Albert Street

Tall houses on Albert Street in Scarborough. I mostly liked the shadows and the tallness of the houses. 3 storeys is good. I wonder why they were so tall… And 3 storeys on a hill seems a bit extravagant. But yeah, the shadows.

Tall houses and getting-smaller houses

Most houses in the UK are two-storeys high but these are 3. The average height of a house in the UK varies between 22 and 25 feet. So not that tall. Also in the UK we have some of the smallest houses in Europe.. Our newbuilds ARE the smallest in Europe. I believe we are the only european country not to have minimum-space standards for the homes we live in. We used to, but Thatcher got rid of them in 1980. And they’ve been shrinking ever since.

Abstract Urban Landscape

A Symphony of Geometric Form

Abstract urban architecture embodies a symphony of geometric forms and lines. Blending concrete and glass in a harmonious dance of modernity. It’s avant-garde designs challenge conventional norms. Provoking thought, and sparking a dynamic dialogue between urban spaces and human creativity.

Abstract Urban Landscape of Hong Kong

Hong Kong’s abstract urban landscape showcases a mesmerizing blend of towering skyscrapers, neon lights, and winding streets. Its vibrant energy and architectural marvels leave visitors awe-inspired and craving more. This photograph was taken in 2018 with my Fujifilm X100F.

Road Closed

Our Silent Path

Road closed, our silent path, nature reclaims its domain, new routes yet to find. Road closed, barred and still. Detour through nature’s embrace, new paths, whispers thrive. Road closed! Cooled roads… Time.

Road Closed, Chaos Blooms

Silent asphalt waits, no wheels pass through its embrace. Lost in time’s stillness. Chaos blooms into stillness… road’s end brings new starts. Closed road, open mind, explore the unseen unknown. Adventure beckons. Corded loons schooled the donor. Beware the corded loons and beware the cooled roads, for they hold the secrets of a schooled donor. Thank you Ai.

The Bridge

A Road to Nowhere

This bridge is gone now, it was up for ages, it was broken for ages, but now it has gone. Banksy even did a little stencil on it it was up that long. It was a dull little pun if I’m being honest. But other people liked it, they came from miles around to look at it. One person even came to throw paint on it. But now it is gone. I think the council have it under lock and key, ready for another day. I dont know if they have the whole road in a garage, or just a section of the road. Imagine having a garage big enough to put a road in.

Transitional Liminal Zone

“Edgelands is a term for the transitional, liminal zone of space created between rural and urban areas as formed by urbanisation. These spaces often contain nature alongside cities, towns, roads and other unsightly but necessary buildings, such as power substations or depots, at the edge of cities”


Bastard Countryside

Victor Hugo coined the term ‘Bastard Countryside’. I’d never heard of it before, but it is pretty good. I shall use it often, and impress people. They will think I am fascinating, and that I know more than they thought.

Pink Rain Lilly

A Pretty Pink Flower

Yeah I like flowers. And I like this pink one. A Pink Rain Lilly. Im trying to remember where I took the photograph. But it was a while ago (over 3 years to be vaguely exact) and my memory struggles. Pink and green go very well together dont you think?.

Pink Rain Lilly

Oh thank you Pink Rain Lilly. Because Ive had to write some words for the SEO ive now got that Psychedelic Furs song (Pretty in Pink) running through my brain… I sorta liked them for a bit, but not that song, in fact its maybe that song which put me off them. Anyway… Eugh.
