Street Art For Three Photography Challenges

Tiger tyre planter with strawberry plant

There are so many fun challenges at the moment that we bloggers are spoilt for choice. I used to go by the rule one post, one challenge, but the times they are a-changin’ and I’m going to follow the trend by hopping on several. First, I’m sharing two kinda cuties for Becky’s PastSquares – a tiger tyre planter with strawberries from Darwen and a robin from Manchester’s Northern Quarter.

Robin, street art by Jim Vision, Manchester

The robin is a cheery detail from a woodland fantasy by Jim Vision that covers a gable end. If you’re curious to see the whole design, Eunice posted several pictures towards the end of this post.

Shrewsbury street art

This seascape is also part of a larger project, this time by Gary Drew for Seven Social in Shrewsbury. Again I’ve picked the cheeriest part, although focusing on orange may steer that way. Is that a sun smiling or a duck or one of many cartoon characters that have passed me by?

String puppet painted on an orange door in Prague

The marionette painted on a door in Prague seems cheery too, though in a slightly creepy way, especially when you imagine the door closing behind you. Are you getting the impression that I read too many stories as a child?

Innovate street art, St Louis

Some readers will have guessed that the colour orange threading through my motley selection meets HeyJude’s Life In Colour challenge…

Dinosaurs, spacemen and planets on a street library

or that the final slice of inspiration is the Photographing public art challenge hosted by Marsha and Cee. By coincidence, Marsha is sharing dinosaurs this week too.

Colourful signs to cities with distances on a post

I’m signing off with a pole packed with city signs plus distances. These make me smile and set me off dreaming so I’m sure Jude will forgive the ‘orange’ being decidedly red. I shared another sign post (or should that be signs post?) from a colourful and quirky private garden a few years ago.

I always wonder if the distances and directions indicated are strictly correct or if some artistic license is assumed. If they are accurate, someone might be able to work out (or hazard a guess) where this one is!

    1. You’d probably guess wrong – I don’t use tags, but it is easy to drag pictures into folders in Photos, which is much the same thing.

  1. This is an adorable post, Susan. I am so glad that you chose to join us along with so many other wonderful challenges. And how fun that we both had dinosaurs this week. Congratulations on being featured. Hope to see you again and again. 🙂
