Broken Pane

By woolybill1
A pavement light above a beer cellar, from the days before electric lighting. In this instance light=window, so as it's set into a pavement the glass is pretty thick and dirty too.

This one is on a very narrow strip of pavement near Edinburgh Castle. Observed during a wander round with Moira and Mick Barrie (mikbee) a few years ago. I remember holding up a couple of coachloads of Japanese tourists who could't work out why I was photographing a dirty pavement rather than my two companions Smile

Absolutely loved the gentle harmonious colours, and admire the care taken with the design.

And Bill, you kicked a hole in the glass at the ideal spot!

A strong pattern with a hole positioned in the right place to break up what would have been boring symmetry. Like it Bill.

always remember wondering whether the glass would give way when I was young Smile
