Outside Living

Posted by Christine (Ellemford, United Kingdom) on 25 March 2012 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

I'm very much an amateur photographer. I live in the hills of the Scottish Borders which has fantastic flora and fauna, as well as wonderful light.

Love this...wouldn't it make a terrific jigsaw puzzle? I like the lines and the 'everyday-ness' of this shot. :-)

Interesting how many variations of 'living' there are in this - about the only factor they are likely to share is a determination to 'live' someplace else. I guess the CCTV is to detect escapes !

The outdoor part of living in this building make it a fine subject with bits of color here and there. Nice shot.

Kein sehr schöner Anblick wenn alle alle ihre Wäsche auf dem Balkon hängen haben. So sieht es aber in allen Wohnsilos aus. Dann kommen noch die Satellitenschüsseln. Schöne Aufnahme.

Love all of the repeating rectangles and the colours of the washing.
Something tells me they may be Hibs fans, is this somewhere near Easter Road?
