A Yorkshire Weekend - Saltaire 7/7

My final shot in this series from Yorkshire, and in this case Saltaire, was this one of a jitty, ginnel, passage, alleyway, or whatever you call it where you come from, between the backs of two of the rows of terraced cottages that provided the housing for the workers when the village was built around the mill.

These days it is wheelie bins, but in days gone by it would have been dustbins.

I couldn't decide on the colour or B&W version, I will leave that preference up to you.

both work for me because you've understated the colour on the left anyways.

the plastic bins look well out of place somehow...... the sad reality ..... But better than rubbish in old tyres or something.. smile

Brian Walbey: Thanks Rob, but we brits really hate these wheeliebins, all part of the global warming thing and in some places the councils make householders have up to 3 or 4 of these things for different types of rubbish. Ridiculous.

Do you know for once(!) I actually prefer the mono version (not like me at all!) It seems to suit the urban feeling of when it was "grim oop north". Wheelie bins are one of the worst inventions ever. What used to my nice front gardens (small, though) in my road, these are now blighted by these wretched things. I'm lucky in that I have rear access to my house but I still refuse to use these things. The council give me bin bags.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan. I see some councils now want householders to have 3 or 4 of these blxxxy things, we rules by a load of idiots.
I prefer the mono one Brian. I find more depth in it!
Brian Walbey: Thanks ichard, I can't make up my mind.
A very close call but the colour one wins it by a cats whisker, the mono is just a wee bit to cold for me. As for wheelie bins, dont get me started Ggrrrr!!
Brian Walbey: It's about even steven at the moment Dave. Sorry if I upset your Sunday with wheelie bins smile

Equally good either way, Brian. The wheelie bins look rather neat...needs some young boys to run through the alley and disturb them. [grin]
Brian Walbey: Thanks ray. Preferably the boys would set fire to blxxxy things smile
Colour, colour, colour. Although the black and white is OK.
Brian Walbey: I'm the only one who can't make their mind up Sheila. thanks for commenting.
The colour one for me, but I really like both.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Linda, I'm still making my mind up.
The colour tells the story better..The green moss on the path and the greenery on the walls..all make it for me Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ron. The Topaz has helped bring out the colours you mention I think.
I can't make up my mind, both are very nice.
Brian Walbey: I'm undecided as well Anthony and it seems about 50-50 between others S.Cer's. Thanks for your comment.
I prefer the colour one but only just. They're both good.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Hayley, i can't make up my mind which I like best.
