Gentle Urban Art

Paula has a weekly challenge where she invites us to post an image on a different them each week and I’m joining in for the first time. I’ve been lurking for a few weeks but this time I couldn’t resist as I love street art.

This is a bit different, subtle instead of bold, it’s subdued colours portray a time when Topsham was a busy fishing port.


Paula can be found here if you’d like to join in.

  1. A pity the colour of the building behind the art work isn’t more sympathetic to the painting!
    Such an interesting scene with the pruned hedge in front acting as a frame.

  2. How lovely Gilly. So very different from the normal street art. The sepia effect is very appropriate for the subjects & how lovely to have history where you can see it!

  3. Do you live in Topsham, Gilly? I have looked at it on Google maps. It’s beautiful, and this mural is outstanding. It has a documentary, historic value. Thank you very much for this entry. 🙂

  4. It’s like stepping back in time, Gilly. 🙂 What a lovely thing. And yes- I was half expecting a little love too 🙂 Have a great weekend, darlin’! Any plans?

      1. The run-up to Easter? I’ll be doing Sunday lunch for Dad as usual, but if it’s sunny I might get a quick beach walk first. 🙂 Enjoy your lazy day!

  5. Gilly takes you back in time.

    Can you explain how to link my blog to Paula’s blog site, Where do I find the link on my post Urban Art.?

I would love to hear from you . . .
