A-Z Challenge: S is for Streets

S is for Streets…

Here are a few images of local-to-me residential streets in Leytonstone. The bulk of the original house-building around here took place from the 1880s onwards, although every now and again you see a more modern building looking almost out-of-place sitting between the traditional Victorian edifices. The most usual reason for this is because there would have been bomb damage during WWII which left empty spaces within the rows (once the rubble had been cleared and the craters filled) that were eventually replaced with a variety of new-builds in the years and decades afterwards 🙂

This year for my Blogging from A-Z Challenge I’ve decided to keep it super-simple, and stick close to home with a straightforward agenda. I tend to post lots of local London images anyway, so my aim is to post at least one new (as in taken recently, and not posted before) photograph each day, taking us on a whistle-stop A-Z tour of Local Leytonstone Life; simple snapshot images of ordinary everyday things around me that capture my attention, yet don’t take me out of my daily routine too much…

      Everyone’s everyday environment is just ordinary, but for others it can be fun to see something different from their experience of ‘ordinary’ – I really love seeing where everyone else lives across the blogosphere 🙂

      No worries – I always spend a lot of time looking but not commenting 🙂

    I enjoy the dramatic feeling of the pictures. 🙂 It gives such a different feeling than the color version would. (I’m sorry if I’ve said that before! It always strikes me what a difference that makes. )
