True colors

Wednesday, October 31st, 2012

  • This afternoon I walked around Notting Hill taking pictures of streets that made me feel like I was on the set of some British film that might star Hugh Grant. I wondered if there was some kind of community coordination with the colors of the terrace houses, like these on Denbigh Terrace just off Portobello Road.

    I wanted to knock on a door or two and ask the owners what inspired their bold choice of color. Was there a person in the street who started a painting trend? Maybe the red house was painted in response to the blue, and the yellow in response to both of them?
