It probably has something to do with the texture of weathered brick or the unique and unusual spaces formed within and beneath them.
It is always very interesting to uses the spaces beneath have been put to. From flower shops in paris, to mechanic workshops, night club, art galleries.
If I ever have a camera handy I like to take a picture. The one below forms part of the Kingsland Viaduct in East London.
Cargo which offer club nights and live music is part of the same viaduct. Want to see what it looks like? Click cargo1 and cargo2. Just one of the many examples.
On a completely different note, one of the Etsy teams I belong to is having a competition. Do you fancy winning a selection of goodies, completely free? All you have to do is put letters together to form a word. Read below for the details.
Etsy Artists of Color Scavenger Hunt
Come play this week to win wonderful handcrafted items in a variety of media. Discover some great new artists and have fun along the way! You must be an Etsy member to win, both buyers and sellers are welcome! No purchase is necessary to win. Members of the Artists of Color Team are not eligible to win.
How to play?
Visit each of the participating EAOC shops below and look through the pictures in their shop listings (recent sold items included). Some shops will contain one picture of a "letter" hiding in one of their shop listings. Search through the participating shops and jot down the "letter" and the name of the shop you have found the letter in.
After you have found all of the letters (15 total), then unscramble them to complete a word. When you think you have solved the puzzle, please convo me (www.callidora.etsy.com) with your entry and your name, if you are correct your name will go into a drawing to win the prize basket. (Only one entry per member.)
