This is a street near where I live. It’s a preservation area, which means that the occupants of the houses have to maintain a certain standard. It’s understandable why. It’s a lovely area.

I don’t think it’s too bad – It’s a pity though about the TV antenna. Something it appears you can’t escape even in a conservation area.
In my mornings walks I pass along several streets with different character; residential, open, quite wide roads with homes side on, several tower blocks, shops, churches etc. I really should be doing more to explore opportunities here.

Now I think I probably aspire to something a little more artistic. But, who can define artistry – this has been discussed on a number of blogs I follow, and even goes back 25 years to when I was on Compuserve; what is and isn’t art?

I think the lessons I need to take is to just take pictures, but I acknowledge that I do need to think about composition as well. I’ve been a bit busy over the last few weeks but with a bit of luck I should be able to do something about my photographic abilities.
