You can call me Marten the Doctor said

Are you taking the piss I replied

Read my mind they thought

There may well be a sting here

Ginger nuts were offered

How vintage was that then

Going round like a hamster

If looks could kill

Bingo my number is nearly up

That’s me beaten for sure

Street art in Iceland

Lots of nice street art can be found in Iceland including D*FACE and ELLE snapped in Reykjavik. Other artist I can credit for snapping their street art are:  AGENT FRESCO,  EVOCA 1, ULFUR ULFUR, STROK, MAMMUT, NOT DEAD YET, KIDDY DUST, UGLY BOYS…. There are many  more murals that I could not snap due to not having enough time in Iceland. Well worth a visit but be warned Iceland is a very expensive country for eating drinking and accommodation!!!

Oooh la la thru the window!

I made this collage using three snaps I took…. Two featured the artwork of the charming engaging French artist Laurence Cammas. The third snap was taken outside the Make Space Studios…. Laurence kindly sat by the window so I could snap her next to the sexy Oooh la la artwork she painted inside her studio.  Her oriental portrait painting looking thru the window was snapped from the corridor as I looked back into the artists doorway on my way out!  The next day I blended and cropped the images to make what you now see…..  It was a great pleasure to hear from Laurence by email that she has posted this image onto her Instagram.  https://preprod.instagram.com/laurence_cms/

Snaps taken in the King John car park 3rd Decemember 2016

I’ve been waiting a couple of years to get into the King John car park off Holywell Lane. The car park is now a building site of regeneration. But I took my chance to slip thru a broken barrier fence to snap the remaining artwork left on the walls. Quite a few of the snaps were painted by  local artist Jim Vision. Sorry I can’t credit the other artists… Over the years there have been many murals painted here. Access has always been a problem due to the security car parking gate attendants keeping us snappers out!!
