‘Found’ art

Many stretches of footpath seem to come with their name, date or other artifact. I took this photo on my walk up to the coffee shop today.

Art was literally flying around today. Walking past the playground this piece of paper blew right in front of me!

bad paint!

Our local footbridge was barely erected before its lovely orange paint started to fall off. In this picture you can see the current state of the bridge which is now getting paint removal assistance.

One of our local politicians who was quoted as saying that “It is potentially a real hazard to traffic and also pedestrians.” I’m not sure about how dangereous being hit by a paint flake really is. although there was certainly lots of paint flakes lying around on the footbridge when we visited.

I thought there is lots of artistic merit in the deteriorating surface (and not much in the way of obvious danger).

All those paint flakes lying on the ground – it was just too inviting to ignore, so I decided to leave a little message for the users of the bridge and also the workers beavering away with the job of paint removal.
