Can't think of a title :)



Sometimes it's all about the composition. Here it was the mural for sure, but also the remains of an old black & white poster curling over and flapping lazily in the hot breeze, rusty stairs leading up to.. nowhere these days, weeds climbing the walls, the general state of abandonment. I love the purple toning of the original above but the gritty sepia makes for an interesting interpretation on a hot, dry 35C day :) What do you think? Seen on Bermondsey St. in West Leederville. I've Googled my pointy finger off trying to find the artist, I see 'Toast' to the side there and the annoying thing is that sounds a little familiar to me. Ah well! Hope you've had/are still having a fab weekend, take care and stay safe...

  3. I would take those 35C any day. Freezing over here today. I like the angle on the second photo.

  4. how about "I'm watching you? I too really like the angle of the second photo. Great perspective!! 35C is way too hot for me :)

  5. Both versions really stand out. By the way, what kind of bush is it in my post today? I had no idea.

  6. "Suspicion"... not that I'm a Hitchcock fan or anything.

  7. I like the full color in the first photo and the composition in your second photo, but keep in mind that I'm just a trouble maker. The second photo has more emphasis on the b&w poster. The mural is a strong statement.

  10. Great shots. I love the one in color simply because it shows the artwork better. Have a great start into the new work week!

  11. Very calm face then the sepia photo dhows the right face far more clearly. Amazing what tricks the brain plays.

  12. Tomahawk Black Swan non, or is that to obvious....

    ReplyDelete
  13. Very mysterious eyes on that one. I like the sepia too.

  14. The eyes have it. (an Australian parliamentary term after a vote on the floor of the house. I 'm sure Grace knew that, but for anyone who didn't)

  15. Very intriguing with the curling poster.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I like the sepia version Grace. The "all-knowing" eye on the poster seems much more significant. Cheers J.

  17. I like the sepia version too Grace.
    "Tomahawk" is the artist, and I've seen some of his works in collaboration with "Lady Bananas", but I've also not been able to find out much about him.

  18. I agree ...favor the sepia one. I hardly noticed the face on the poster in the other.

    ReplyDelete
  19. That mural is beautifully painted and I do like the rather scruffy setting. It does look good in sepia too. Nice find!

    ReplyDelete
  20. A great composition indeed, Grace. I prefer the first pic.
    Purple Black Swan as title?

    ReplyDelete
  21. I can't think of a title, either....

  22. Feather head???

    Or (better?) dream catcher.

  23. I don't know what to make of this. It's very dramatic and powerful in its own way and there's probably some meaning buried in the art work. Your entire photo is an enigma...those stairs, for example. Where did they come from? Great post!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Absolutely! I see so many thoughts and visions in this lovely piece! What a magpie one could string from just this image!

  25. No need to find a title - I thought of Pocahontas...

    ReplyDelete
  26. They are both super! Hot weather sounds wonderful, Grace! Cold, rainy here.

  27. I think the artist is Tomahawk. I think the color version shows heightened tension in the woman's face. The sepia version underscores the heat and dryness. Both compelling. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.

  28. I wonder why she facing a little to the left of the photo but looking to the right. Hmmm.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Other than fantastic, I don't know what to call it!
    Great find Grace...

  30. There is a little sneer and a sense of smugness in this dramatic expression on the woman's face. Stunning piece of street art.
