More (Local) Street Art

Standard

Hello, hello! Oh its so good to be posting here again πŸ˜€ I’m kicking things off with some vibrant street art that has sprung up recently round my town. We (the town, not me personally) are trying to win something called City of Culture 2021. Its a *thing*, y’know, to raise the profile of large towns and cities across the UK. Hull have the honours at the moment for 2017, and we, amongst others are competing for 2021 (its every 4 years if you haven’t worked that out already…..!)

So, amongst other events, plans to brighten up the place are afoot. This includes things like festivals (food and beer, mostly), lights strung up across various dark lanes, flowers all over the place…..and of course, street art. (Lets not mention the council raising business rates for retail places and the amount of empty shops we have….nope)

Now these were all down the same street, which is a street full of clubs and music venues – hence the common theme. Sadly I don’t know who the street artist is – I have seen him around hanging from various scaffolding (these paintings are HUGE!) so it didn’t seem appropriate to chat to him. If I catch up with him on ground level, I shall certainly credit him.

I do have lots more to show you but I will leave that for during the week. For now I’m trying to get a video set up, about planners and suchlike. πŸ˜€

Look atΒ this! Isn’t it fabulous? This is on the side of a building close to where I live, and its been done by two guys called Mark Worst and Ross Dinnett. Its huge and bright, and you can see it for miles (almost). I took this shot on my way back from the shops this evening thats why its a little bit bluegrey. Darkness falls quickly here in Scotland, ha!

Anyway, how are you? I hope you are all well. Not to spam or anything, but I have started a youtube channel. There are only two videos up at the moment but I want to do more. I’m having a problem with lighting and shadows, which is annoying but its all a work in progress I suppose. Everyone has to start somewhere.

Do you have plans for the weekend? I’m hoping to get out in the woods a little bit and take some photos of Spring flowers. I can feel the air getting lighter and things are beginning to blossom. I do like Spring. Of course *rolls eyes* it depends on the weather. Sometimes we have to dress for all 4 seasons on any given day!

Off to have some pizza now (gluten free, of course) Bye for now! P.S WordPress seems to have gone all wonky with stuff on the side? Is that some new formatting they are trying out or is it just me?
