A grid within a grid!
I've always loved that you take photos of things most people would walk right by...

For a moment I thought that was the side of the wall until I realized it was the street. Right? Great perception shot!

It does play with your perceptions, doesn't it. Reminded me of a portcullis (without the pointy bits).

Hello Cindi and Pat. I like textures and patterns.

Thanks for the link Sy. How wonderful that such a bright and wonderful festival could be created from 'rubbish' and that people were able to respond so creatively and on such a massive scale.

Hello Chuck - no, right first time! It's a grid in the side of a wall but high up and that creates the perspective which suggests the grid is set in the ground. I found it in the same row of buildings as the red cellar door.

Hello Helen - yes, one can make one's eyes switch backwards and forwards so one moment it seems upright and the next, horizontal. The portcullis comparison hadn't struck me but, now you have drawn attention to it, I realise it is one of the reasons I like it. (Are you familiar with the image of a portcullis on the old thrupenny bits?

I love the angles but the weathering on the bricks caught my eye.

Lucy Corrander said...

Hello Hermes. Yes. I was struck by the contrast between old bricks and new mortar.

I like this, I think it's the symmetry.
