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.

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.
I should have made it black and white!
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!
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. 🙂
Amazing artwork! I’m in awe of whoever painted this.
Love it! Wow. This isn’t what you usually see with all the bright and sometimes garish colors. A fitting mural. 😀
I think this is a very nice piece of art, I love how the image is surrounded by a very “normal” looking neighbourhood.
This one has stories to tell. Great choice! 🙂
It is a beautiful piece of street art… ❤ quite a bit sophisticated compared to what we usually see. Did you skip the One Love theme then, eh? 🙂
I like the colors. Keeping it real. Looks like a China plate scene to me.
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?
Phew, just home from the first craft fair of the year, I’m going to be lazy tomorrow x 🙂 x Have fun honey!
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!
Gilly takes you back in time.
Can you explain how to link my blog to Paula’s blog site, bopula.wordpress.com. Where do I find the link on my post Urban Art.?
