Art is all around us here in Notting Hill...
Take bead-curtain Mona Lisa, for example. I've photographed her before, but the other day her beads were hanging perfectly straight, fully revealing her in all her glory. It's interesting that she is a mirror-image of Leonardo's Mona Lisa. Maybe the curtain maker didn't want to infringe on Leonardo's copyright -- or The Louvre's? Or is she simply hanging inside-out?
Yesterday morning this huge image of Bob Marley was lying in our parking lot, probably driven there from parts unknown by the night's high winds. The maintenance man seemed unamused. He hauled it away minutes after I took this picture from our balcony.
Until recently, this saucy African or Caribbean market lady watched me walk past each morning on my way to work. Then she suddenly disappeared. I think her window box was replanted and she moved to another, less prominent perch on her balcony.
