Art on Our Street!
I photograph street art fairly frequently, but it's not often I find it on our street. Yesterday, though, on the way to Hyde Park with Olga, I discovered that someone converted a streetside tree stump into a chair.
Olga was intrigued.
But not intrigued enough to delay her trip to the park, where she had a great time chasing her Kong toy, rolling in the grass and enjoying the view of Kensington Palace.
Then, on the way home, we found more art -- a painting on canvas that had been rolled up, folded in half and put out with someone's trash. Curious to see what it looked like, I brought it home and unrolled it. Wouldn't you have done the same?
I kind of like it, but I'm not sure we'll keep it. How much would it cost to re-stretch the canvas and put it back on a frame? Probably more than I'd care to invest.
Oh, and Dave hates it. There is that.
