Take the rough with the smooth

Today’s post for Jude’s texture challenge isn’t as perfect as her Zimbabwean sculptures, but I hope you might like my twist on the textures of smooth and rough.

Hanbury Hall in Spitalfields dates back to 1719. Originally a small Huguenot chapel, it is now part of Christ Church and still the heart of the local community. Charles Dickens regularly used the building for public readings of his works, and the Match Girls met here to prepare their strikes in 1888. All which suggests, to me at least, that this building has seen plenty of difficult things as well as pleasant. A great example of taking the rough with the smooth, especially since on the outside I discovered smooth and rough bricks, and also some rather lovely smooth tiles.
