Guess what I was going to call this one....


before I thought better of it.... (Three windows, of course!)

This is in the open piazza area in front of Dean Clough Mills, Halifax.  I found the stone spheres just begged to be photographed, though the lighting was rather dull and flat on the day I visited.  You wouldn't want strong sunshine for this subject but it could have done with a bit more light.

  1. Just before I left University of Southampton, almost identical spheres were installed around parts of the campus. Until now, I haven't seen anything like them. Some more nice geometry here, jenny.

  2. You should have stuck to your original idea for a title. They do beg to be photographed. I saw some similar in Cannes, France. I think they have a function as well as being arty. They keep the cars off the footpath or gardens.

  3. I think the spheres stand out well as they are- that white stone also combines well with the white of the traditional window frames- a good eye Jenny!

  4. I only see the bench! :o)
    Do you remember this old tv serie with Patrick Mac Gohan, the Prisoner?.. and the white bowl keeping him on the island?..

  5. Spheres? I love shots of things lined up like this.

  6. We have big..."spheres" like these near our new library...lots of laughs over the design. Someone thought they would look more proportionate when the trees grow. I might not be alive to see that!

  7. Not sure I get that design, but the windows are pretty cool!

  8. I love the strong architectural statement! And I can't resist the old joke --

    "Balls!" said the queen. And the king laughed because he had to.

    Okay, I'll go stand in the corner now.
