Facades

Facades, streets with houses after houses after houses with wonderful old, as well as new, facades. That transforms a walk, at any time, into a little adventure.

A big part of traveling is the enrichment of experiencing places different as one usually experiences in their daily lives. Houses and buildings are of course an important part that tells their story through their architecture – whether it may be similar or very different.

Street art

We are hired as private drivers, part-time, usually¬†involuntarily & unprepared – I may not have told you that! It’s various activities, dinners, gigs & other we are asked to drive our boys to, and it’s unpredictable. To put it nicely – we get to see places we otherwise wouldn’t. Different suburbs, neighbourhoods & areas where they usually meet with friends.

So in other words, inspiration from the streets today – it’s not about aesthetics, it’s about peoples creativity. The way people can change the street scene, not through architecture but by being ingenious in a simple, down to earth-way.¬†What’s exciting is that it can turn up anywhere & unexpected. It makes me think about the person behind & the reasoning. I call it street art, where others might look at it as clutter or graffiti…perhaps.
