In search of colour - 11
February is a grey month in England, so I'm still in search of colour - and I found it here in the window of one of Saltaire's village houses... pretty glass lampshades, pink roses and Saltaire's own little seagull. Malyss in the south of France (Chronicles from the Shore) regularly has seagulls on her blog, so I am pleased to show her this 'petit cousin' (perhaps). Furthermore there's an interesting reflection of a corner of the Victoria Hall, and it shows off the decorative stonework rather well. When you see the whole facade of the Hall, the details tend to get lost in the bigger picture. I have been rather ambivalent about whether the stone sills of the village houses should be painted - but here the blue is rather attractive I think, and makes a nice feature on the front of this beautifully cared-for terraced cottage.
This is my entry into "Weekend Reflections" this week - and there are lots more images on the theme if you click the link here.
