Sometimes the details are inside a building.
Last month I was lucky enough to peek inside a house owned by an elderly neighbour.
Layers of history. Contrasting wallpapers. Mis-matched everything. Colourful paint. Peeling wallpaper. Personal effects.
I only had my Blackberry with me to take these snaps and although much of the house has fallen into disrepair I found it wonderfully evocative and uplifting.
The house and its contents have seen a lot of happy times.
