Fabulous street art and a great shot. I like the single person strolling by and though it was part of the art till I saw the feet ;-)

Isnt it beautiful, beats an ugly concrete wall any day
December 4th, 2019  
Try to find me!
December 4th, 2019  
Well spotted
December 4th, 2019  
Real nice artwork, the lady coming into the picture in her big stride, is a big bonus point.
December 4th, 2019  
There may be a hidden meaning here knowing the song or comment about the birds and the bees! Rather good art work!
December 4th, 2019  
Runnnnnn, there is a giant bee coming for you, lady!
December 4th, 2019  
Beautiful artwork. Well find.

Absolutely super mural Marnie. Pity about the monstrosity... :)
December 4th, 2019  
Perhaps they should have continued the mural into the tunnel.
December 4th, 2019  
I like your composition around the mural.

What Etienne said 😉

@graemestevens Great aren't they? Love some painted on our back wall near the deck.

@777margo Fab isn't it?
December 5th, 2019  
@ludwigsdiana I had to hurry the shot to get her in!!
December 5th, 2019  
@yaorenliu Can't see you Yao.
December 5th, 2019  
@onewing Oh yes, couldn't agree more but the concrete thingo was sooo grotty.
December 5th, 2019  
@ethelperry Thanks Ethel. How's things with you?
December 5th, 2019  
@maggiemae I agree, great artwork. Such a pity about the grotty surrounds.
December 5th, 2019  
@angelikavr I only spotted her at the last minute and had to hurry to get the shot.
December 5th, 2019  
@casablanca Blooming heck, I'm glad they're only painted on!
December 5th, 2019  
@robz Couldn't agree more Rob. I nearly didn't bother with the shots because the surrounds were so grotty.
December 5th, 2019  
@merrelyn Maybe. I have no idea of what that structure is, I should've checked it out but my sisters were giving me hurry up looks.
December 5th, 2019  
@etienne Thanks Etienne, lots of fiddling with the crop.
December 5th, 2019  
@momamo Thanks Monique. When do you move back home?
December 5th, 2019  
What fantastic artwork.
December 6th, 2019  
@dide Yep, pity about the grotty stuff though.
December 7th, 2019  
So bright and bold, although it looks like she can't face it and is heading into a safe shelter!
December 11th, 2019  
@jyokota It was a very grotty lane.

@golftragic -- "grotty" -- my husband used that word and I've never heard anyone else use it -- I wonder if it's Australian? (his first academic appointment was in Australia at LaTrobe)

Addendum:I just looked it up and it's British in origin and made famous by the Beatles in "A Hard Day's Night."
December 12th, 2019  
@jyokota I've just looked it up too Junko and discovered its British origin. My OED says it's a contraction of 'grotesque'.
December 13th, 2019  
@golftragic -- I asked my Australian friend tonight if she knew the word and she said she uses it. But none of my American friends knew the word..
December 13th, 2019  
@jyokota How fascinating Junko. I guess we're more prone to adopt British words than your fellow Americans. In my youth Australia was still very close to Britain in more ways than one, but there's been a marked growth in our adoption of some American language and culture over the past 40 or so years. Having such a small population much of our TV/streaming etc is dominated by US/UK programs, with a sprinkling of Nordic noir and the like. All very interesting to folks like me (and #1 granddaughter) who are absorbed in all things related to (English) language.

@golftragic -- my husband loved words so much that our daughter's Easter egg hunts comprised of plastic eggs filled with clues for which multiple dictionaries in different languages had to be consulted! This continued until she graduated from high school.
December 13th, 2019  
@jyokota How marvellous!!!! And multi-lingual too, very impressive. I've always loved dictionaries (and atlases, maps and encyclopaedias). Mmm, not too sure about that last plural, I think it's from the Greek so the s should be OK.
