594 – It doesn’t work

I have a choice. I have written about this before. In 2017 I went along Stokes road taking pictures of the shop frontages, then I read something and I realise that I should have thought a bit more about my 2017 project.

This is because I am now slightly conflicted. The 2017 pictures were just of the shop frontages, I didn’t include any of the building. I have to be honest and say perhaps in retrospect I should have perhaps included the building.

Then what I found out is that buy far the bulk of the interesting buildings on Stokes are included in the Stoke Road Conservation area, have a look at;

So really, the buildings won’t change, but the shop frontages do change, and reasonably frequently. Do I make the assumption that my focus should be on the shop frontages as the buildings will look after themselves?

The problem really came to light this evening, when I wanted to compare a change in a shops front. The shop that was Solent Cleaners in 2017 is today the Yellow Edge Art Gallery. That’s quite a significant change. But with the pictures I have today, I can’t give that direct comparison. That’s because the second picture taken just a couple of weeks ago included the building, and it is therefore more difficult to focus on the specific shop.

To be honest, if the building isn’t likely to change, then I’m less inclined to include them. I think that I have just talked myself in to focussing on the shop fronts only. Given that the last set was taken in 2017, and with daylight now in my favour in the mornings I am set to take a few pictures every day that I go out.

Now, I do have another problem. Where to put those pictures to make them accessible to the public in a logical way. I’m still thinking about that.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
