orange wall

In Musselburgh there is an orange wall. A painted wall that stretches around a roadside property. The property looks Victorian but it is mostly hidden by the orange wall.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERASet into the orange wall is some sturdy gates that are painted a subtle blue to fit in with the orange.

Dogs barked at me as I took pictures and I could see the high security of the place.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOn paper I couldn’t imagine it working – such a long wall painted orange and blue/green gates to go with it but it looks fine and is not at all garish or unpleasant. Brave people to make that decision, braver than me and the barking dogs……….
