Wandering around a few months ago I was struck by the utter chaos and dirtiness of backstreets in my local area. I found it quite funny how the council and residents/shop owners, spend so much time and money making the fronts of their buildings look so inviting and yet the backstreets and side alleys are left to fend for themselves. This struck me as odd, because in many cases, at least where I live, these streets are quite well used by people, or in some cases the streets are open to the impeccable fronts of other streets.Despite the lack of care and attention paid to such streets and alleys, there two things you are not allowed to in almost all of them, they are "No Parking" and Definitely "No Ball Games!"
This has formed the basis of my project to document the backstreets and alley ways of Newcastle.
This is on going, long term project. I will be posting a couple of images at a time to keep you up to date with my project.
