I live bang smack in the middle of a housing estate so I knew that photos of beautiful views were completely out of the question and I would have to look carefully for points of interest. I also chose to do my photos on 'bin day' (because it stopped raining and the sun was out!) so the roads were full of the grey and the green wheelie bins which validated the decision not to go for the big picture and to stick to small details.
I'm busy adding to my stash of photos for my Project Life album, capturing images I see on a daily basis so I decided to add these five photos, detailing the start and end of my drive to work. I decided on all of these images before I left home (rather than look for them when I got there) - they have all been cropped to improve the composition of the end result.
Photo no 1 is of some ivy poking its way through a fence on the crossroads. The fence really is that colour, probably the reason that it always catches my eye as I drive out of the estate.
Photo no 2 is also seen on the drive out of the estate but just round the corner on the other side of the road. This garden is always a riot of colour and again always catches my eye as I drive past.
Photo no 3 represents the general appearance of most of the road - brick walls with overhanging greenery.
Photo no 4 is my favourite one and this view of the magnolia tree against the sky is one of the images I see on my drive back home.
Photo no 5 is on the crossroads, opposite the orange fence in photo no 1 and is another image I see on my drive home.
Linking with Karen @ Me, My Camera, Eye. Many thanks, Karen for organising the challenge - I really enjoyed this one.
