OUTER SUBURBS 31 – PATH THROUGH MODERN HOUSING 3

 

 


.

The partly seen car – a truncated splash of bright, reflective, curved colour – drew my eye.  It contrasted with the mass of non-reflective, straight-sided shapes – the blank, utilitarian facades of the built environment – surrounding it.

OUTER SUBURBS 20 – PATH THROUGH MODERN HOUSING 2

Path between blocks of modern housing.  There is more housing behind the streetlight, fence and tall hedge.  The pipe on the outside of the house on the left is carrying the gas supply.

OUTER SUBURBS 19 – MODERN HOUSING 3

 

 

.

Three thoughts.

First: the cold, blank, anonymous  and often indifferent face of the Modern World.

Second: an antenna to connect the inhabitants of the Modern House with the Modern World (and, below ground, cable too).

Third: the far freer, if less secure (these days), Natural World.

STILL LIFE 250 – LOOKING AT CHAIRS 26: SOUTH BRISTOL (MONO)

 

 


.

The backs of terraced houses in Bedminster, south Bristol: garden chairs on an impromptu and rather stark “patio” that is sandwiched between a garage door and a wired security gate – garden chairs??? – relics of this summer’s record breaking heatwave, no doubt.

The first post in this series on chairs, which contains context and an image, can be found hereSubsequent posts are here: 2 3 4 5 6 7 8  9  10  11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 .  Each will open in a new window.

OUTER SUBURBS 16 – MODERN LIFE 4: DOUBLE GLAZING

Low angle sunlight, just after sunrise: as Our Star rises, the shadows cast by the houses on the other side of the street creep slowly down this manicured suburban facade.

OUTER SUBURBS 13 – STREET SCENE: ENTRANCE TO AN UNDERPASS (MONO)

 

 


.

This picture is best viewed enlarged – click onto it to open a larger version in a separate window, and click onto that image to enlarge it further.

The path down to an underpass below a road, with vertical metal poles to keep out anything larger than bicycles.  Irresistibly I’m reminded of a path down to Hell, with two slim, grim, austere guardians at its entrance.

And do I believe in Hell?  Well, certainly not in any religious sense.  But I do believe that there are Hells on Earth: some of us make them for ourselves, and some of us make them for others, sometimes vast numbers of others.
