Picture day 291 – On my way to Manchester

For about 7 years when driving from Macclesfield to Manchester I have passed by these, to me quite hideous, houses and every time I’ve been thinking that I have to stop and photograph them and at last I did it the other week.

    There is no excuse for bad design. How did they get away with building these things?

      Yes that is a very good question.

    Very good composition in photography!
    I expect someone to run through this shoot!
    Something like De Chiricos paintings: something like Melancholy (

      Thank you. I actually had one photograph when a person walked pass but I chose the one without but after your comment I “nearly” changed my mind 😉

    Great idea to wait for the right sky to act as an appropriate foil to the utilitarian buildings! 😉 I like separate bands of colour across the frame. And, while the individual units of accommodation are identical, their owners have made their attempts to personalise them – in the shape of the different doors.
