c is for fable chimneys

c is for fable chimneys i may have misled you on Thursday when i said i was going to talk about chimneys. a chimney is "a vertical channel or pipe that conducts smoke and combustion gases up from a fire or furnace and typically through the roof of a building." and this is not what I'm talking about today. a new block of flat (they call them luxury apartments) is now visible from bed room window. now i'm not one to bitch about new build ruining my view (all i could see before was a bus depot) but on top of this building are thing that look like chimneys but they can't be chimneys because the flats don't have fireplaces. they as useful as an emergency flare in a black whole . ok so maybe there purely aesthetic reasons, I'm an artist and i understand that it's important to make thing aesthetically pleasing i also understand Symmetry and proportion. the "chimneys" on the roof of this building are not Symmetrical or evenly spaced but would  be if one of the "chimneys" was removed (at lest on the side facing my window) it as if they had a spare and decided to sick it on for the hell of it and it just look a little bit odd which bugs me a little bit

god i'm sad and i haven't even mentioned the odd "balconies"

hay why not buy a mug
