Junk love wednesday

Appologies for missig last weeks Junk love wednesday! I was away in Poole again with no internet!
Iv had a lovely week this week, despite it not been a very creative one, i went home to Hull for a few days and spent some time on the beach at fraisthorpe walking my mums puppy ill save those pics for another post but It was lovely been at home and i managed to have a catch up with some old friends too.

Back to Junk Love...Iv not got an object as such for my post this week, but i took these pictures a while ago and havn't done anything with them yet. So i though Junk Love would be the perfect place to put them for now untill i do something more creative with them.
They were taken on a trip to London, it was when we were there for New Designers actually. Well, being in London naturally we spent a bit of time riding the tube. Im not a huge fan of the tube, there is no air and everyone gets squashed in like sardines in a tin, but we dont know London well enough to navigate anywhere quickly on foot or via bus.

This particular trip on the tube proved to be quite inspirational. Im one of those people who can find inspiration in almost everything, not everybody 'gets' that so i think it must be a creatives thing?
Here we go...

These first four are beautiful textures i found on the platform walls while waiting for the tube, i had to be quick taking these as the platforms fill up really quickly, i got a few sideways glances from people no doubt wondering why i was taking pictures of the wall!

I love the cracks and old peeling paint so fragile and worn almost delicate.

These three are what was left of torn down posters or advertisements, i loved these as they were huge and i could imagine them hung in a gallery space. I love that these torn down pieces of wall are now captured by my camera and now probably have a shiny new poster over the top of them.
I think i would like to re create the textures of the wall onto a canvas someday when i have the tme.
Junk Love over and out for this week, if you like junk and would like to write about your junk then join the Junk Love Club over at emmaroseart and meet other junk lovers!
