I KNOW I GO ON A BIT….BUT YOU’LL THANK ME IF YOU CLICK THESE TINY PICS.

WHY ? BECAUSE THEY’LL OPEN IN A BRIGHT, SPANKING NEW WINDOW OF THEIR OWN… SERIOUSLY.. IT’S A NO-BRAINER!

So…What if I my deeply seated, quasi-spiritual love of all things ‘Fire Escape’, were to become embroiled, entangled, hybridified and generally inter-squished with my pan-sexual lust for Birmingham’s street art?

What if that were to happen!

Well I suppose it might start with a shot like this….A gorgeous, soaring, vertiginous, green and sexily staired, sideways strutted shaft of semi-shadowed beauty, found leaning casually against one of Birminghams otherwise un-inspiring lumps of brick….

I suppose I might just feel the need to mess about with her a little bit….(I’m only human)…Maybe I’d wander over and, with no further ado, give her a blast of the old monochrome treatment..These ladies sometimes like a bit of ‘tough love’.

Tell you what, just to show how sorry I am, how would you like a present? Maybe something beautiful to hang around your neck?(Mr Shpics knows the way to a woman’s heart).

I know just the thing…I saw it only a few hundred yards away. What about this?

You like it?

Oh good…….OK, just lean forward a little, it’s a bugger to fasten……Nearly there…..Nearly…….Done!

Do you like it? I think you look beautiful, it brings out the colour of your struts!

Give us a kiss!

    Tee-hee. It’s fun to look in on you at play! I like the monochrome, too. Just watched Orson Welles in “Touch of Evil”….all that mise en scene and film noir gets you in a groove that can be addicting.

      I’m a big believer in ‘groove’……When I’m in a state of mind I reckon it makes sense to milk it, pretty much whatever it is….

      Are you going to be ‘layering’ this week? I started working on this after thinking about the ‘layer’ challenge…Kinda drifted away from it a little, but that’s me all over.

      Yes…I’ve been following a few threads about this..
      Authorities painted it white only last night in the first stage of redeveloping it as luxury condos…
      I think trying to preserve it was in some ways missing the point but still a little sad.
