Part of a gable end on Silver Street in Durham. I like the shadow across the poster, it makes the face look slightly sinister.
The ancient wall has been repaired very badly, perhaps by a plastered plasterer Smile

82mm, 1/500th sec. @ f9, ISO 200

A good bit of spotting Bill, I like the mix of old worn textures and colours with the young , ssmotth black and white face. As you say she looks mysterious too.

Well seen! Love the idea of being watched but also adore the textures, shapes and tones in the building itself, so it's got to be V1 for me.

Not a bad face to be watching you Bill. I wouldn't mind it.She beats curtains any day but it's time she pulled herself together.

The Face at the window, well spotted Bill, and what you've done to make a great image, fascinating split level scene with its abstract base supporting, clever imaginative work, Adrian

Good capture, well spotted.
Draw yourself together Bill, Danny's around. Nice face in the window, and the colour for me brings reality as the mono looks somehow as if it could be make beleave.


A plastered plasterer? Many think they can plaster but more can just get plastered.

I reckon you're right! Well spotted and captured, Bill. Good point about the shadow too. Like someone sinister peeking through the blinds.

by the plastered

a scene to remember when looking to rent
a face in the window
instead of a drape
better choose a tent......

It has been my expierience Bill,to find plumbers get more plastered than plasterers.They must feel the need to get their own internal pipes full of liquid too !! An attractive face at the window.Perhaps the plastered plasterers poster,that he left behind !!
