My eye ( and therefore, my camera) has been drawn of late to textures in the environment;  to the everyday scenes in my inner city location.

I love the history of these lanes, wonder at the tales the stones could tell about those that have passed over them, fight for their preservation from the vanadalism of councils and utilities who scar them with their machinery.

They say a great deal about how communities formed and evolved, interacted and connected and they have a place in the future if only they are allowed to be part of the fabric of our cities and suburbs.

The lanes lead us to the modern gallery spaces – some would say that stencil art and graffiti have no place…but this is still the work of someone with something to say and this is a place for and a means of expression.

How revealing and inspiring the simplest things can be; and how accessible they are when you get out and WALK!
