Excellent series JM. I like the reflections in the no. 11, the colours in no. 14 and the traditional blue and white tiles in two of the others. Together they are a nice litle gallery.

I photographed 11"s all over Paris for one of my Birmingham viewers whose house number is 11. I love the metal blue and white ones here as well. That orange house at the top is spectacular. Nice series.

How fun to see simple address numbers. Out here, they range from 5-7 digits. Poor kindergarteners learning to memorize their address have a big job.

Such a pleasing series - really love the variations !

Nancy said...

Many residential areas in my town are all the same - cookie cutter homes that all look the same.

I love this post -

Great idea for a series of photos! I love the way door numbers are posted here in Europe.

Hi JM - just popped in to say hi and catch up on all your wonderful posts. I do so love doors/doorways so this series is right up my alley.

Have missed blogging but am able to do my Facebook which is good.

Cheers and hope all is well

Loved these. Thanks!

Beautiful! I like the way you post a series of alike photographs so that we can really get the most impact. I love the colors of the 1st one and and I remember the blue number plates in Croatia/Bosnia when I was growing up there in the late '60.
