A couple more from the art campus of the University of Bordeaux. I'd love to know the storyline of the first one, and I'd love to meet the model for the second. I once knew a girl with two different coloured eyes when I was a teenager, and yes, she was beautiful too. I, alas, was ugly.... sigh

Another one from the art campus of Bordeaux. I am in awe of the powers that be that let the ends of the teaching blocks be decorated. Good stuff.

I love getting to see street art being made; this is one of two silos being painted in Wimmera towns right now. Silo art is big in Australia now, it's hard to believe there were unadorned silos all around the cropping country for so long!

In the middle photo, the bird flying over was a magpie, same as depicted in the right side silo.

This is technically below the street-art. Just a little bit further down the Jones Falls River dives underground beneath Baltimore until it empties into the Inner Harbor. I'm saving that portal for another explore. The last one is a memorial to a young musician killed by a hit & run drunk driver nested under one of the bridge's pillars. GX7/09-18

The entrance to the Jones Falls River conduit is just beyond the culverts you see below. You can also see a camp site on the right bank.

I love silo art, which has taken Australia by storm, and other countries, too. This is a painting being made on a GrainCorp silo in western Victoria - I posted an early photo of it on 6 October, and a lot of progress has been made since. The artist is Geoffrey Carran, who has painted a number of murals in the region, captured here at work on a Sunday - I guess the weather dictates when work gets done, like a lot of things in the country. Having a head for heights must be a requirement for muralists!

Depicted are a blue-winged kookaburra (a big, laughing kingfisher), a magpie (butcherbird), and a galah (as in, 'silly bloody galah', a pink and grey cockatoo).

Across the road, enterprising locals have set up a refreshment stand.

A new painting in the Wimmera Silo Art Trail, Victoria Australia, depicts a hobby (type of bird of prey) and two endemic native sun-orchids.

These silo artists work are amazing. That's magnificent, as is the last ones you posted.
Fantastic to see them.
Must be something extra special to see them in the real though.

The whole process invigorates many of these tiny towns, bringing traffic that would otherwise not come - often leading to new businesses opening, such as cafes. It's really exciting!
