Room at the top of the stairs -

"Warley House"
digital collage by Mick Mather
Another addition to the series of architecturally-based works here. It's very loosely based upon John Braine's novel, "Room at the Top", whose film adaptation is considered to be the first of the British New Wave films. Noire, street, gritty and dark.

I like the feeling of this house, it's sinister, gloomy, lonely and somewhat frightening.

What's the rent at the top?

You wouldn't want that flat, Susu ... too many stairs!

Beautiful and eerie without the tissue stuffed bra that colour sometimes exudes.

U added for any brits out there.

Reading a Beatles bio and both Lennon and McCartney had Irish ancestors, arriving in Liverpool circa potato famine. The Lennons changed the spelling of their name to avoid discrimination.

Gee, I had Irish great-grandparents who emigrated here during that famine. Grandma married a German and once WWII arrived, well, talk about being outed times two!

I once had a friend who lived high up - without stairs, as well. With two small children and a big grocery bag every day, she would have liked an elevator.

In my early 30's I lived on the 21st floor of a high rise apartment building. At the time, I was also a heavy smoker. One night, just as I was returning from a wild night of misspent youth, a storm knocked out the electricity. "Twenty Flight Rock" ... up and up and up the stairs!
