This week’s Friendly Friday Photo Challenge celebrates all the different types of art you may find in public spaces…Street Art!
I have come across some interesting pieces on my travels and I always love the surprise when you come across some art in the most unusual places!
On a day out with friends a while ago, we headed through this tunnel, which to my delight was plastered with art.
I spent a lovely long weekend in Blackpool a few years ago and it would have been rude not to do some of the touristy things whilst up there! Walking the spruced up promenade, we came across the ‘Comedy Carpet‘ – quotes from lots of different British comedians under your feet…what a great idea! I loved it!
Peppering the streets were also some interesting sculptures.
During our visit we took my mum on a surprise visit to Morecambe, which is just up the coast from Blackpool, to have afternoon tea at the fantastic art deco hotel, The Midland.
Morecambe was also the home town of the legendary comedian Eric Morecambe, and he has been remembered with a statue which overlooks Morecambe Bay – cue lots of posing next to it!
If you are not familiar with Eric Morecambe you can find more information here.
I was able to spend some time wandering the streets of Newcastle when we stayed there a few years ago. There was a lot of street art dotted around and this has to be my favourite of all time.
It was on the side of a car park and took me completely by surprise as we rounded a corner.
It was phenomenal and spell-binding.
