Friday Photo Challenge (Week 7) Heart

This week’s Friday photo is ‘heart’. My photo is combination of hearts & wall art from last week. I spotted this graffiti on a wall behind Casemates Square and thought it rather lovely.

And here’s a little bit of crochet too, a granny square heart from Crochet by Redagape’s CAL.

2018 Friday Photo Challenge (Week 6) Wall Art

This majestic octopus is the main reason why I chose wall art as one of the prompts for this photo challenge. It appeared on the side of a building in the Upper Town in Gibraltar last year, but it wasn’t until early January that I found myself face to face with it for the first time.

I had seen it on so many Facebook, Instagram and local media posts but it was quite something to see it for real. Measuring 22 metres long, it was painted by artist Jessica Darch and took 10 days to paint. This isn’t the only piece of wall art in Gibraltar though, last spring this work created by the British artist Ben Eine appeared on the side of the Inces Hall…

It certainly proved to be a talking point over here, with divided opinions on it’s design and the appropriateness of its situation, on the side of one of the town centre’s historic buildings.

The most impressive piece of wall art I have seen though, has to be this creation in Toulouse in Southern France. While on holiday in the city last summer, we were wandering aimlessly along the old streets when all of a sudden, we were face to face with this:
