Norwich - Narch - Norritch

I have taken to cycling around Norwich taking photos of roof-lines. I have become a bit obsessed. Anyway, this is my version of Norwich. It's not an accurate representation - the real Norwich is far more magical.

  1. Hi MollyP
    They have a Gherkin in Norritch?
    Anyway, I like the artwork because it reminds me of you...tons of colourful interesting things squashed in one place and bursting to get out.

  2. I like that too - it's almost an exercise in how to use three dominant colours.

  3. Hi KenD...I don't think it even has a name or nickname that pointy thing because you can only see it from about two places in Norritch. They put it on top of the new Mall and everyone went a) where is it? and b) what is it meant to be? and then merrily proceeded to ignore it. Thank you KenD for your comparison. I do think I burst out less than I'd like to!!!

    Hi Mark. Thank you too. It's the end of the colour spectrum I always use. I need to break out.

  4. Real pretty work there, work with character, and personality that shouts... the kind of work which Dr. Seuss would be blue, violet, *and* green with envy about.

  5. Eric - thank you. You have such a unique way of putting things (not to mention a huge knowledge base on which you draw!!!!!)

  6. Very cool. I have to admit to having an odd fascination with Norwich rooftops myself (the Colman road shops are my fave), which I've always assumed was my own personal madness.

    You've done a wonderful job of capturing the variety.

  7. Colman Road Shops?
    Dominoes, Papa Johns, Bits and Pieces (or whatever it's called) Boots and McColls? Do you mean there?????????
    Yes insanity.

  8. Well I was thinking of the ones near the Avenues, the roofs are all angled in a cool way...

    I'll just get back in my padded cell. :P

  11. Winter Road, nearer the Fat Cat/Belle Vue (because all good geography is pub based). The semi regular walk to UEA just happens to take me that way.

  12. Ahah - I used to be on Cardiff Road in the Welsh quarter but it feels like we have moved to the suburbs now!

  13. Thank you Pearl. I put it on Facebook and a few people have asked for prints. Perhaps it's my future there in purple, green and blue!
