They look like bricks...is that approved, Bill?
Bill Phillips: It should not have been Ray
Great patterns and lines!
Bill Phillips: Plenty of them too. I see Joe is doing better in Super Tuesday
i think it looks very well suited for black and white, Bill.
Bill Phillips: It works much better than it did in colour Ayush

Now you can see why we have World Heritage status..
Bill Phillips: I wonder how these ever got planning permission? Lisl wants to know where this is. I have no idea

Nicely geometric, Bill.
Bill Phillips: Which is surprising for me as I was hopeless at Geometry at school

Great patterns and lines. Somehow the line of buildings reminds me of dominoes.

Love the lines here, Bill. Great B&W!!!
Bill Phillips: Thank you mutely Lady P
building built when there were NO TAXES on WINDOWS?
Bill Phillips: Happily the window tax was finally repealed in 1851 long before these were built!
Bill

I read some articles years about about England and the WINDOW TAX and think I read one about the repeal of it but didn't remember when that took place

I recall photos showing how some buildings had had their windows filled in so they would not have to pay the tax.
Bill Phillips: The tax came in in the 17th century I believe and the result was as you say. Many windows were simply bricked in. You can still see houses with the windows in this state.
Monotonous architecture but like this it makes a great image.
Bill Phillips: They are not pretty but made a decent enough snap
I like the kind of skewed look of the perspective. Works very well.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Care. Pleased you like it

Bill Phillips: I grittied it up sherri!

Bill Phillips: It was a pretty steep road Peter
I like the compression, quite eye catching, Bill smile
Bill Phillips: Thanks very much Martin

Oh very good1 I like the vertical and diagonal lines in this. B&W suits it very well. Tick, v.g.
Bill Phillips: Looks nothing in colour Alan
