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.

The Tunnel

Long Dark Tunnel

Origin Unknown 🙂 This is a tunnel in York. It isnt that dark tbh but it does make use of good lighting.. And it is pretty long. Though I suppose we were veering into ‘piece of string territory’ with that statement. Anyway, when we found it I became excited. Personally I think York is dull and twee. A theme park. But it has its moments. And this is one of them. As are its riverside alleyways. If I remember I’ll post one of them later.

Pipelines and Passageways

A tunnel is an underground passageway. Commonly dug through surrounding soil, earth or rock, and enclosed except for the entrance and exit, usually at each end. Apparently a pipeline is not a tunnel, maybe that is a size thing. Maybe if it is big enough to walk-through it can become one. But then maybe it also needs entrances at each end. And if it has entrances maybe it is no longer a pipeline. Who cares.

A Crap Generated Poem

York’s ancient depths breathe, Tunnel whispers, secrets kept, Shadowed path, age weaves.

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.
