It’s always interesting to me to look at different houses..the colors, the landscaping, the styles, all the various ways people can make a house their own. The decisions homeowners make are ones they will have to live with for many years, so choosing the details isn’t just like buying a new wardrobe for the season. To me, too…art is everywhere in colors, designs, lines, textures, contrasts, etc.
I walk my landlady’s dog daily so I’ve gotten to know the neighborhood well. I started noticing different driveways, so, the other morning, I decided to walk and see what I could find. It was early out and I struck up a few conversations with neighbors as they spotted me taking pictures. I explained I was taking pictures of driveways. There was a pause (as if they were saying “driveways” … why???), but then they’d tell me about their driveway and the challenges of slopes and angles.
So here are some I spotted:
There were several driveways using the theme of regular concrete bordered and dissected by red brick:
There was the use of borders to add contrast, whether the substance was colored concrete or a marble like substance, some with one main continuous solid piece, and some with squares or rectangles:
There were driveways with various patterns of bricks and other different color products:
There were two driveways that seemed to be either pebbled or some kind of asphalt pattern:
There were two with coral colored concrete, using a pattern:
There were 4 mosaic type patterned driveways:
One very random rectangle pattern:
And my favorite, a colored polished concrete driveway with a randomly placed brick circle:
