Evening light

While on the phone with a friend this evening, I noticed this lovely light outside, and snapped a few pictures. Thanks to a wireless phone with a headset, I did not have to interrupt our conversation. :)

How fortunate. Looks like it was a lovely conversation, with balanced composition, picturesque architecture, a silent poetry atmosphere, soft contrasts and very automnal colors. If you taste what I'm saying.

Thank you, but actually it was a quite intense conversation about heady and sometimes touchy subjects. I guess my thirty-year experience photographed lend a hand. :)

So you are an automatic quality photographer.

When I saw the upper picture I instantly thought Privet Drive. The contemporary image of mass produced Barrett/Wimpy homes as epitomized in the mythical Privet Dr of Rowling's Muggle world. A modern day analogy for Coronation St, which embraces all things that Victorian back to backs can become.

My wife challenged me to show her part of Britain that doesn't look like that and I flippantly said "The Sweeney", which is solidly based around London's mix of Georgian, Victorian and 1930's suburban, which we at home jokingly call "Shirley Valentine houses", albeit decorated in the decay of 1940's as the series is set in the 1970's.

It is strange how Britain looks so British, even in these tiny fragments of urban residential architecture.

At times like this my mind does the curious leap to the lyrics "To be in England in the summertime, with my love, close to the edge".

very beautiful, so Britain it is? Then the sky in the second shot makes me think of something from oh, an O'Brian novel . . .
