Space Between Two Old Buildings


This is two crops of the same photo. It's the brick walking space between two old buildings in Newtown. The building on the left was built in 1733 and the one the right was built in 1782. I don't know when they put the bricks in the middle.
There's a garden at the end of the bricks but it's hard to tell because of the bright sun.

  1. Looks like a passage you could walk through and find yourself in Narnia, or another world at any rate... endless possibilities there. Old stone is so much more beautiful than the cold concrete and steel of "modern" architecture...

  5. It's definitely not a wardrobe, but the first thing that came to my mind was The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.

    Fantastic textures.

  6. Owen is thinking about Narnia, I was thinking about the lord of the rings..
    It could also be a way through ages that leads you to paradise..

  7. Hi James - just found your blog via a comment of yours elsewhere - glad I did! These shots are great - old buildings facing on tight alleyways like this just beg for a "vanishing perspective" shot, and HAVE to be b&w (I'm hopelessly addicted to the medium). I'm looking forward to digging around in your archives and seeing what you post next! Best to you.

  8. There is a kind of mystery in this post!I like so much, I imagine I'm inside your photo with a feeling of being "Sherlock Holmes"! Cool!
    Happy weekend dear James, hugs to you and Vicki and purrs for the little ones!

  10. Mysterious and a little eerie at the same time...I think Naria could be the result of a walk through that space. I love the textures of the walls and brick walk.
