On that subject, just a quick detour on this subject of buildings! I remember getting a letter from my son's headmaster, when he was about 10, saying they were concerned about Andrew's use of swear words. Anyway, after a discussion with the school, we were able to explain that Andrew had not realised the word was "naughty". Let me explain...we were living in Papua New Guinea, the word for "something that was not working" is "bugger up"! Anyway in a test, Andrew had put his hand up and said, " Please sir, my pen has gone bugger up and l need a new one". Once we had explain, Andrew was forgiven ( actually this earned him so cluedoss with his friends!) and actually because of the mix up, the school introduced a new lesson "Mistakes in other languages". So something good came out of a mistake!
One of the reasons l really like this image is because of all the different styles that are so intertwined, in a very small area of ground! This was taken in Plymouth and was situated on a hill on the outskirts of the town or is it a city?
The above image of decorative oblongs, is l kid you not, a multi story carpark !! l think l would be cheered up each day if l parked my car here ..very arty and modern! .....and still in Plymouth, quite a "hip place" as l used to say in my youth!!
The colours, shapes and patterns of the next image is mock Egypian and always makes me smile. Don't know what it is used for but it makes me think of a cinema or theatre or maybe is being used as a church meeting place for some strange church cult or something!Ha!
The image below is a normal sight in london, balcony above balcony! I do miss the balconies l had when living over seas. One balcony was so big, we could have lived on it!Hax Oh those were the days!
This last image is of what my parents call The Rusty Bucket!ha. They hate it and think it is an eye sore! I have arguements with them about it because l really like it and they can't understand why. It is a seaside resturant on Littlehampton beach that has won all sorts of awards. l think the outside is amazing but l have to agree with my parents, the inside is not good and lets the whole building down! My last word on this subject of buildings is, isn't it wonderful that we live in a coutry where we can still express our likes and dislike and we have artists that stretch everyone's imagination!?
