CFFC: Graffiti and Murals

This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Graffiti and Murals although the photo isn’t really about either.

Taken last summer I gave the photo the pretentious title of ‘A Study in Blue’ as a joke and as a tip of the hat to the Sherlock Holmes story ‘A Study in Scarlet’ which is the first of the Sherlock Holmes stories.

Rather amusingly, the photo features both a mural and graffiti. In the background there is a black fence which is a smoking area for people in the cafe next to it. Patrons were given sidewalk chalk to decorate the fence.

Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge: Grin

This is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge: Grin.

Now you may be wondering why a section of a mural featuring two grumpy looking men has to do with the grin challenge. I’ve always found the mural a bit grim, it could do with someone grinning.

The mural is on the side of the laundromat in Southampton, Ontario, Canada. I think it depicts some of the history of the town. Maybe the grumpy looking men were two of the founders of the town. But surely, if you’re going to produce a mural to highlight some of the history of the town you could have made the portraits smile or grin.

Oh, and the name of the laundromat with these grumpy images on, Sparkles Laundromat.

Cee's Black and White Photo Challenge

Mural, signs and a snow bank

This week’s Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge is Murals.

I was amused by the parking signs and the thought that anyone would be parking on top of a metre (39 inch) high snow bank which is partially burying the mural.

The mural is on the side of the Sparkles Laundromat, Southampton, Ontario and celebrates the 150th anniversary of the town.
