This truly is an exercise in deleliction of duty when the world calls out for you to lead us into sunlit uplands with pleasing tranqil chocolatebox scenes.

'angonaminnit...what were you doing up on the roof??!
Bill Phillips: If you recall...assuming you ever read what I put on here...I was taking pictures of the Hive from the roof of the Crowngate Car Park smile
Gawd! You really were at roof height it seems ... unless you were using a long lens and even then did some cropping.

It reminds me of a Harry Potter scene somehow
Bill Phillips: I don't know much about Harry Potter

Never mind the hive, this is a fine looking building - probably not going to last much longer I suspect.

It s a good photo again Bill, but might be even stronger with the rhs cropped - the bins are a tad distracting and that would focus the eye solely on the intersection of the three courses of brickwork.
Bill Phillips: hidden away and decaying nicely. I think you are right about the crop, I just liked the bins tongue

Don't think the red bin things add anything to the picture. I agree with Mike - if you crop off the roof and the distracting right hand side you get quite an interesting abstract study of lines and planes. Like the warm colours.
Bill Phillips: I think you are both right. I just liked the bins! I might just do a second version

Not tempted to do the spot colour trick the...go on, you must have been sorely tempted.
Bill Phillips: Of course i was, but decided it has been done before

Now we are talking, Bill!

Great shot!
Bill Phillips: Weren't we talking before?
Now that is a fascinating building Bill, bins or no bins.
Bill Phillips: Some want the bins to go. I have posted a no bin version on facebook!

This picture is in the red spectrum: but that doesn't improve it
Bill Phillips: What in the name of all that is sane are you blethering on about>
A lovely capture Bill with wonderful colours and great angle. Love the bricks. Well captured.
Bill Phillips: Thanks very much Laurette.
This would not have look quite the same without the colour cues...and that red? So where's the zombies, Bill? lol!
Bill Phillips: Plenty of zombies in Worcester on a Friday nighttongue
An interesting assemblage of surfaces, Bill.
Bill Phillips: a pot pourri Tom tongue
I like the sort of "railway cuttings" feel to it
Bill Phillips: Do i detect a Tony Hancock fan?

Bill Phillips: A bit of Topaz.
A nice play on depth with the bricks, I like the angles.
Bill Phillips: Thanks John

Hmmm.. Funny that no-one has mentioned the brick wall on the left before! I think you've been followed.
Bill Phillips: They were all dazzled by the bins
Brilliant. The red foreground bricks look as if they're massive bricks behind the building!
Bill Phillips: I see what you mean, I hadn't noticed that until you said
