Dapper dawgs..

 

You might remember my post a few days ago from Mr Chapple in Fremantle. Apart from the convivial vibe of Mr C the other reason we popped by for lunch was to take shots of the fabulous mural here by Aussie artist ArtByDestroy. Anthropomorphism, paintings of animals acting like humans, has been around for a long time, possibly the most well known example Dogs Playing Poker by CM Coolridge way back in 1894. I think it's pretty cool, what about you? Hope you had a good weekend, happy Monday, take care and stay safe..
