Take Six

....or Take Five continued.

POSTER  GIRL

In one of the less salubrious parts of town I spotted this torn poster. It seems to have a sense of urgency though I've no idea what the original illustration(s) were advertising.


THE  SCULPTOR  AND  HIS  WORK


Even in the most cared-for gardens the voracious snail gets to work under cover of darkness. I rather like the patterns he's created here - but then it's not my garden!



REFLECTED  GLORY

When two ages clash....St Andrew's Church stands reflected in an office building. Like an ancient disciplinarian regarding the doings of the modern age! 



POPPIES

Wild flowers sometimes flourish in the most unexpected circumstances - like in this pile of builders' rubble - but none the less colourful for all that.



HEAD  OF  THE  FAMILY

Jumping on your shadow is a fun thing to do,
                                                               a fun thing to do,
                                                                                      a fun thing to do!



BLUE  SHADOW

Every bad situation is a blues song waiting to happen - Amy Winehouse



Take care.

  4. The torn poster is its own artistic expression. Print it 16x20 and sell copies!

  6. I too like that poster. Torn in all the right places, it makes you want to study it to find clues of what it says.

  14. That first one reminded me of one that my eldest daughter has. I dates from WW2 and was used for female war-effort work propaganda.

    That one should be about my age. Some things change and some don't.

    PS My blog has moved to ="http://visualnorway.wordpress.com/"
