Deep sea creatures..

 

Sometimes not deep enough! Going down the stairwell on a visit to Watertown last week I came unexpectedly face to face with one of the most feared of all ocean creatures. A clue might have been the beautifully executed mural on the lift shaft at the top of the stairs. Now that my hamstring is back in shape I never take lifts when there are stairs available, if I had I would have missed the incredibly lifelike shark mural, both painted by WA muralist and portrait artist Susan Respinger whose work you have seen here before. I missed the much friendlier whale shark HERE (did that link work?) at the Wellington Street entrance to WT. Hope you had/are still having a good weekend, happy Monday, take care and stay safe..

Visit Sami to see more Monday Murals from around the world..

  1. My, my...that shark is astounding. What a talent to be able to create something that looks so real. My first thought looking at that photo, I thought you visited an aquarium.

  2. The shark is amazing, it looks so real. The octopus looks like it will grab anyone who wants to ride the elevator. Great looking murals, Grace.

  4. So that's funny, you had the same idea with Sami. It's certainly the most beautiful lift I've ever seen.

  9. It seems Watertown is very popular. I may be a little reluctant to use that lift.

  15. Those are wonderful murals. The shark is so lifelike. While I would not want to see one while swimming, it looks fine in the mural. I've always been impressed by Octopus. Did you know that each of their eight arms has an independent brain?
