My family went out for a walk in the snow yesterday and took some photo’s of the garages in Hall Green, which I love. Wish I could have been there stomping in my new red wellies! The colours are so muted and the snowflakes create an extra pattern against the garage doors.
Al and I attempted (and failed) to go to the cinema the other day (turns out Skyfall is still very popular!) but we did stop and have a look at an abandoned Nightclub. There is something very eerie about somewhere that used to have so much dancing and merriment become so empty.
Me and my family went for a walk in Hall Green and stumbled across the most amazing garages I ever did see. They reminded me of a real life George Shaw painting. I think they are beautiful.
The odd thing is, for my Dad’s birthday I gave him a postcard of a George Shaw painting of Garages which is spookily like the ones we saw, down to the puddle.
Yes, it’s true! I have been on a lovely walk around Sherwood in the autumn sunshine and three garages caught my eye. I think they are super and I don’t think it’s garage envy because I don’t have one. I like the fact they look well used or forgotten about, it’s a fine line.
Look at the colours, they are just incredible today!
My Brother Theo took this photo recently and I love it! As a massive fan of wear and tear, I thought the rust made it but I also think the colours are marvellous. Theo is great at composition and has a fantastic eye for straight lines.
This year I have started a new collection of photographs of wear and tear that I find whilst on walks. With this and my discarded furniture habit, I am constantly on the hunt! I think worn paintwork can be so beautifully detailed and intricate. Some of the images that are created by photographing close up look like abstract paintings. Here are my top twelve:
I am yet to work out how I would like to display this ever growing collection. I like the way they look together and that I photograph what catches my eye. It’s a very simple project.
