Mini

By mrswoolybill
A new and particularly ugly housing development, perhaps a bit more interesting in reflection.
Thanks for looking,
Moira

I suspect it looks a lot better in this warped state than in reality...the colour of the brickwork is certainly not uplifting...

Great reflections, Moira.

I'm sorry to say a story repeated everywhere. You just wonder how thw planning group passed it...

Great image and I think your right the reflection does make it look a lot better.

Very good Moira. Much better than any of the club efforts on the subject.

It does need the inclusion of 'Mini' to explain it. Well thought out and composed Moira.

One use for a Mini...

All the new housing 'developments' are awful places and are the same across the country (I have come across so many). It's as if there has been a mass copy and paste of the plans.

I most impressed with the well-polished bonnet on the Mini and the end result of your focussing. Brings some glamour, to a very nondescript building.

Thanks everyone, and thanks to Ken and Ollie for their UAs. I'm sorry if my title raised false hopes in some members. (Maybe I ought to rephrase that...)

There's an illustration of the Ouseburn development here. I think you will agree that it looks better in my photo.
Exceptions are possible. There is a lovely new estate on the riverside at Gateshead, designed by Wayne Hemmings, the Red or Dead fashion designer. The story is that he complained in an interview about the 'Wimpeyisation' of the country and Wimpey contacted him offering him the chance to design something different. The result is an affordable estate with variety, interesting designs and community gardens in between the streets, example here.

Well I have seen Mr H's efforts... Wink

That Ouseburn development is awful, but ok if you're wanting a film set for a 1970s period piece. Sterile doesn't begin to cover it.
Your second link is better. Greenery is a sarce commodity.
