Thursday’s Special: Urban Art

You don’t have to wait in lines or purchase tickets to see it. It is out there open to everybody and free and it changes the character of a town or at least some parts of it. It is called urban art and I love it.

    • Yes, that’s very clever to use the roof to create a hat illusion :). Thank you, Debbie. I’m glad you like it. It is just down the street from me.


  1. You’ve given me another theme to pursue when I go urban on Sunday! I love the way this one completely takes over its base building. And you have an owl too! I seem to remember you have an affinity with owls.


    • I thought you were going tomorrow. Thank you for remembering, Meg. Owl is my totem animal. This is a gorgeous piece of street art in my neighbourhood.


    • I wish we had more of those. Unfortunately the most graffiti still consist in meaningless and ugly scribbling on historic buildings, but when it is done on sheds or ugly walls by real street artists it is such a joy to watch. Then I feel like there are other people that love this town as much as I do 🙂

  7. Paula, I was going through the other entries and realized that Irenewaters19’s entry is pointing to ‘’. Can you check it out!


  8. I’m going to really enjoy looking at the entries. We don’t really have much in the way of urban art because we aren’t urban. We aren’t even suburban. We are barely exurban. But I’m sure there’s something in a file that will suit 🙂 I love how urban art has transformed from graffiti to real art. Some of the work I’ve seen is absolutely stunning.


    • Thank you for having a look, Marilyn. I look forward to seeing what you will dig out from your archives. 🙂

    • Yes, she is. I also thought she wore a hat :D. Thank you, Gilly for joining me and especially for introducing Topsham.

    • You are right about the contrast 🙂 I am filled with joy when I see an addition like this to my neighbourhood. Sonya, you are a dear for going out after work to capture the murals next to Opera House. Outstanding work by the artists and the photographer!

  13. I’ve just been for a look through the other entries this week Paula and it seems as though I have misinterpreted urban art. I will have to go back to the drawing board. “I will be back”….


  14. I love this! I came here by way of Jo. I may have to enter this challenge. I love that song too. Who is the artist and what’s the name of the song? I’d love to add this to my playlist. 🙂

    • I’m sure you have. Have you seen the theme for this Friday from “happiness engineer”. 😀 Unless I come up with a good twist I’m affraid that engineered universal love will.leave me emptyhanded.


          • “equal love and respect for all people and all things.” That’s against human nature. You can come up with all kinds of beautifully sounding theories, but you cannot fight biology…
            Anyway, I did have something to post, both for your challenge and the love challenge. 😀


          • Yes, it has this hopeless romantic/teenagers view on the world feeling to it. I’m not sure if I’ll post something for the weekly photo challenge this week. Unless I can come up with a dark twist to it of course (but I won’t be thinking about ti tonight, that’s for sure. Now it’s relax time for dad!
            Have a great Friday Paula!

  24. Remarquable photo (et sujet) je n’étais pas trop “fan” de street art, mais j’apprécie chaque jour d’avantage. Et j’en “poste” queleques uns de temps en temps. Peut-être les as-tu vus?
