Never used to be.
This shot was taken right in Newcastle City of a great brick wall in a terrace house and then I had fun whilst I played with the perspective in PSE.
I think it now looks a bit a wall in a pyramid, or at least more ancient than it really is. I love exploring old crafts. there is a great contrast between the light and the dark bricks as well as the different patterns. Unlikely you would find such interesting bricks to include in your house nowdays.
