Some fun doors from our last day trip to Brighton in mid-July 🙂
We saw this beautifully painted utility cabinet on a street in Brighton last week 🙂
Battery painted on a wall in Brighton 🙂
How do you avoid the humdrum monotony of looking out onto a grey tarmaced empty space wrapped in boring brick walls? You paint it with great street art! These ‘Majestic’ examples are from the back walls of the car park behind the Majestic Wines retail store in Wanstead, East London 🙂
The other day I took an ordinary photograph of a small area of white graffiti stencilled onto a grimy plain-rendered wall, simply because I liked the message. Once I got back home, I pondered on what to do with it to make it a bit more interesting, more creative to look at – what would be the best way to add the fun factor to my basically boring image?
So I first made it into a negative rather than a positive image, which gave me black writing on a blue-greyish wall. Then I went back to my original and created three more negatives, chosing to invert the image first through Red, then Green, then Blue channels only to see which I preferred. In the end I couldn’t decide which colourway I liked best so I found myself a simple online image-stitching programme and instead constructed a four-sectioned multi-coloured collage a la Andy Warhol… et voila!
Ta-daa! I’m really pleased with how it turned out 🙂
I found these lovingly created colourful hearts painted onto the full height of a supporting brick wall under a dark railway bridge at Borough Market in London – they just brighten up an otherwise dead and boring space, brought a huge smile to my face and seemed to privide the perfect backdrop for taking selfies 🙂
Primary colours of spray-painted graffiti on an old brick wall framed and reclaimed by green ivy leaves, and dappled with sunlight – my take on ‘found art’ for this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge 🙂
