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.

Black lodging

It struck me the other day that it’s not particularly common with black houses. Thus black façades, the very dark soot-blackened façades. Can certainly be found here & there in specific areas. Properly done, it is really beautiful with black buildings that stand out in the public visual noise. Some buildings & houses can get a majestic dignity. Black houses beautifies wherever they turn up, whether it’s in town, the countryside, along the coast or in isolated areas. Let us see what you think. I am very fond anyway.

Daily inspiration, facade

Facades are amongst one of the best things I know. It’s a special feeling in my stomach when I see fine facades, whether they are contemporary, traditional, worn or whatever, really. I have spent loads of time, wandering around in different cities or streets to experience architecture regarding facades along streets & squares. It can be charming old houses, old schools, newly manufactured wooden houses, factories stately or just square ones, without decoration. Facades says a lot about us humans, through different epochs. It’s nice to play with the idea of how people living inside are & what they do. But let’s leave that thought for another time.
