Life in a glazed brick wall

 

England, Worthing seafront property.

Three floors up.  Victorian white glazed brick wall ( with grime ).  Airbourne seeds or maybe bird droppings with seeds, wedged into the mortar courses, the right conditions and a Fern of sorts is produced, growing happily between courses.

 

 

Spout it out…

Plugs eye view of a Tap spout…

Clad Whale?

Is it a Whale or a Transport museum…

It was such a grey day, the flash kicked in.  Views of the Clyde and buildings in the window reflection, heading towards the City…

A Clyde view

The River Clyde, heading away from the City centre.  Once the Hub of fine British ship building, a different scene now…

Industry vs Riverside development.

On the Industrial side.  Cranes reaching for the low grey storm clouds.

Opposite Industry, the Riverside development.  Concrete, glass, stainless steel and painted to compliment the Glasgow grey sky.  (It’s not always grey)…

Chalked wall

A few years back this Artwork was about all over Brighton & Hove.  Then it stopped.  The Artist may have moved on, who knows.  The example shown here looks unfinished, as the others I have seen in the past were more detailed.  The Artwork was drawn only in chalk, I think the Artist wanted to put his message across without the lasting effects of damaging property, it has a sort of Thai Asian feel about it, “could be wrong”.   This could be the only example left in the town!

Spotted on the side wall of “Focus Do-it All”   Sackville Trading Estate – Sackville Road, Hove, East Sussex, England.

Our Daily Bread

There is so much that we don’t see immeadiately, or ever, for that matter.  Hand painted signs in this instance.  This Art has been handed over to companies that make signs using computor, photographic images and plenty of plastic.  Picture taken in Stoneham Road, Hove, East Sussex, England.

The hand painted signs above, almost lost to time now…

In a few short weeks now, this sign, between the two buildings, will be out of sight and mind when the trees foliage takes over until next fall…

Folding Door

I like these folding doors, could do with a bit of TLC or not!  Rustic charm.  Hove Street, Hove.

Just liked the contrasting colours and materials…

Brighton Station “The Clock”

Brighton Station, is a beautiful example of Victorian Architecture, with its exquisite iron, glass and brickwork structure.  Few of us take the time to look around our lovely Station.  They are a means to an end, the start or ending of a journey, a place to drop off or collect people.  Most commuters only look at the electronic platform displays for arrival or departure times in between looking in to their mobile phones whilst texting.  I had almost forgotten, that this clock was up in the God’s, what a beauty!

What a fine Time Piece, Brighton Station Clock.   Unfortunately, missing hands on the North Face.

Brighton Station Entrance looking North from Queens Road.  As soon as the sun appears this Station is mobbed with arriving tourists and day trippers all heading straight down Queens Road / West Street to the Beach.  Next stop, France and Europe…

I was verbally accosted by a Railway platform worker, we exchanged a few choice words.  He said that I was not to photograph the Station and if I carried on, he would fetch the Transport Police.  Apparently, I need permission from the Station Master, something to do with terrorism.  Well I got the photo’s that I wanted for that moment in time.  I will be back!

I recently looked at a photo, which included this fine clock hovering over a crowded platform and the steam trains below.  The photo was taken during the Edwardian Period.

A close up view of the external clock, above the Station entrance.  Is the Clock mount, Marble or Stone? I will find out.

So, until I can get other shot’s, I hope you like the pic’s…
