on somebody’s street

  1. Wonderful selection and matching quality of the colours. Bring out more of the texture in this too. I’m left thinking that I need a little more pavement along the bottom just to make this a little bit more welcoming. It’s still inviting as is though and does encourage me to look. Perhaps the pavement would make it a slightly warmer welcoming if that makes sense. The shadow on the door is quite threatening yet the handle on the right there helps you in. I’d like to see inside this place…though it would probably not be as interesting as its facade.

  2. Now you mention it, I can see a square picture with the pavement as you say. But there again, it was my intention to dwell on colour and not offer entrance! One would like to see inside so many places…but I can’t enlighten you as to what this one is like!

  3. I’m quite happy with the crop as is — this is immediately about color for me, and such wonderful color it is. Then come the textures and design. Quite an eye feast. It had to be one of yours with those reds!

  4. Christina – thanks for that. I hope you meant frame rather than crop! This is as taken.

  5. John — yes, frame is what I meant. I knew it was not cropped!

  6. I’m not sure why I didn’t comment on this when I first saw it. The use of colour is wonderful and the framing fully makes a picture out of nothing.

    One wonders if the orange neighbour was making a point :-)

  7. The decisive moment, the shadow bisects the door. Verticals everywhere.

  8. Strong graphic elements just as I like with a good use of colour. I like the way the blue seems to break up the verticals a bit.
