The Gallery - Street Photography




This week's theme on The Gallery is:  Street Photography.


Nothing says street to me more than graffiti or 'street art'.  Below are two of my most favourite I have come across on my wanderings.

    1. I stummbled upon it one summers day when taking the girls to the park. I wonder if it is a Banksy. Probably not.

    2. There is a Banksy like that with a maid sweeping under the wall. Maybe a piece of his earlier work? LOL

  6. Street art can go either way. Some of it just looks tatty but the two you've photographed are lovely. This is my first time on The Gallery so 'hi!'

  7. Took me a while to see the lettering in the first one. I thought it was an ant carrying a seed. Is the second one a Banksy?

    1. I'm not sure if it is a Banksy or not. I know there's a lot of copycat artists about

  8. Love the second one especially. One wonders if it is a real Banksy or a pastiche.

    1. I'm not sure. But there is a real one not far from where I live, so it's possible.

  10. So cool, I love street art too. Definitely improves our environment in my eyes anyway, especially when it's done well.

  11. I love the second one. Reminds me of my toddler who loves to "help" and will sweep up for a bit (before chucking it and running off!)

  12. Is that bottom one a Banksy? Fantastic!

    1. I'm not sure. I'll have to go and see if it's still there. We have one Banksy in town that was defaced, the council came out and restored it.

  13. Street art is great when it is done like the ones in your photos. I've seen some dodgy looking ones too though, mainly of a man's rude bits lol

    1. Oh, we have our fair share of man's rude bits.
