Weekly Photo Challenge: Work of art

Michelle writes for the Daily Post: “…share a photo of something that’s art to you. It could be some actual “art,” like a painting by your grandmother or the misshapen but perfect clay sculpture your child brought home from kindergarten, or something most people wouldn’t consider beautiful at all, but that has meaning to you. The important thing is that it’s art in your eyes…”

    I do love graffiti so much! This one’s fantastic. One year there was a slowdown on the train from Oxford to London and I got some lovely shots of graffiti art. Must go find the files. 🙂

    • the Trabants / Trabis were made of plastic and not really strong enough to break through a wall – but the state of mind of the common people on the streets were strong enough to make a revolt vs. a stupid, idiotic political administration. My mother lived in East Germany, me in the West behind the iron curtain. I often crossed that frontier…


      • Wow! That sounds like quite a story! I crossed into East Germany in the 70s. My father and I drove across to West Berlin. Even that was frightening. Is your mother still living?


  8. wow how appropriate. ’89 not that long ago…


  9. that is a really great choice for this week
