When we were in Suffolk recently, we visited the pretty coastal town of Aldeburgh and my son, Rory, took a photograph of the terraced houses on the seafront. The properties were beautifully painted in pastel colours and I thought at the time how important it must be for neighbours to work together so their homes display a united, complementary image.
The theme for this week’s Gallery is colour. The Aldeburgh street immediately came to my mind and then I remembered other streets where the use of colour has accentuated the beauty of the buildings. In Stockholm the properties in the main square, Stortorget, in the Old Town, are painted in warm tones and in Copenhagen the run-down harbour has been transformed into a vibrant meeting place, Nyhavn, helped by a judicious lick of paint.
