I remember having a chat with @notreallyobsessive about how there seems to be a lot of triplets of tower blocks in London. I wonder why. There are quite a few in my area, I have a soft spot for the triplets of the Ranwell West Estate because of their tiled entrances.
I don't really expect anyone else to understand why I like this scene. I plodded through this estate a lot this summer and never failed to be inspired by the hues and textures of green against the Modernist concrete context. Bloody love this.
Once upon a time before Camille Walala did Well Street, it looked like this. That's the part of the magic of art in our streets. It's fleeting, transient, fragile. Absolutely always worth getting your camera out for.
I can't explain why I love taking pictures of textures, colour and geometry in our everyday lives without sounding pretentious. Thanks to Instagram, I know I'm not the only one who finds the magic in such sights. And among people like this - I know that explanation is unnecessary.
Today we spent a day frolicking with colourful things. I try not to work on Sundays - It's hard not to sneak off to sew something when my husband and and son are preoccupied. So I try to keep my mind busy in wonderful worlds that make us all smile. @owl_and_dog_playbooks are one of our favourite reads atm.
