Tuesday Transformations


I want to live in this transformed place. It looks like great fun. By Patrick Commency, Le Puy en Valey, France.



A little moving, perhaps? By Smug, Glasgow, Scotland.



Mein Gott, what a boring street, but much enhanced with this work. By Bart Smeets, Mechelen, Belgium.

  5. I love that first one and would live there too if I could and spoke French. That final street is very boring and for me, not enhanced so much by that mural. It needs more.

    1. River, do you speak any German?

    2. Not out loud, but there are snippets that come from the memory and occasionally speak in my mind. I grew up with English, but mum and dad spoke German for a long while and my sister too, who was four when we moved out here.

  6. All three are excellent. What a long way we've come since the days of plain painted adverts. I always used to wonder why anyone would allow Dubonnet or St Raphael (here in France) to paint ad's on the sides of their houses, but with these I can understand immediately.

    1. Cro, I don't know about these ads painted on buildings, well not large ones. If it was an ad, then the property owner would have surely been paid.
