Reptile reflections..



Australian snakes are known to be among the most dangerous in the world, some biggies too! Not quite as humongous as the snake on Wellington Street reflected in the window of Jamaica Blue in King's Square, painted a few years ago by Belgian artist ROA during Form Public (have a look) Mexico has a ginormous reptile also! I was lucky enough to watch ROA at work and whatever you may think of street art a piece of this size and complexity is an incroyable endeavor. Hope you're having a better weekend than moi, have spent most of it in bed with change of season flu, c'est la vie! Happy Sunday, take care and stay safe...

  1. I didn't know Aussie snakes were big and venomous! Has the country ever been called "Reptilian"? So sorry you're not feeling well. Hope the bug leaves you soon and you can get out and about and continue your fabulous photography!

  2. What a brilliant reflection! We might be in different hemispheres but, I'm right there with you in bed this weekend. I caught a cold on Thursday and I've been trying to tackle it ever since. None of my usual remedies seemed to work this time. I hope you are better soon and me too!

  7. Okay that Acadia thing was scary enough..now snakes? Eeek!

    Get well dear, you are going to need your strength for that Christmas crowd. I would even come and help if I were closer!
    For the recipe for that cheese ball go here http://www.cookingchanneltv.com/recipes/garlic-herb-turkey-cheese-ball.html. I did not add dill...but did use a few onion flakes. I also toasted pecan chips to roll it in instead of almonds.

    Maybe you could even make it into a "fat" raindeer...by removing the tail and adding pretzel twists to the head.!

  18. I've heard a lot about Australian snakes. I recently shared a photo of one on my Facebook page--it was trying to crawl into someone's mailbox!
