We saw these beautiful chairs sitting outside a hotel in Gorlitz, Germany. If there was a waiter around I certainly would have stopped for a relaxing G&T.
While most of the Berlin wall has long-since been removed, there are a few places where sections have been preserved, in particular the East Side Gallery is a 1.3km section of the wall that has been turned into an outdoors art gallery. We only walked a small section of it, but they gallery goes on forever. There are a total of 102 paintings, and these are just the few that we saw. The gallery is something that you must visit in Berlin; the art is though-provoking and interesting.
I might have to write a series on the street art in Muizenberg, because I am finding more and more walls with really interesting art painted on them. I drove past this wall the other day, and it was covered in Escherish sharks. I think it is remarkable. The artist’s phone number is in the corner if you want you own wall painted.
One think I love about running (yes I know I have said this many times) is seeing the world around me. I run back-roads that I don’t usually travel in my car, and I have so much more time to see that world around me.
Today I am going to share you a collection of photos I have built up of some of the walls in Muizenberg. Every photo was taken on a run going through the Muizenberg community. Walls can be so boring, so if you have to have high walls, the community in Muizenberg have found ways to make them more interesting.
This bird is literally flying out of the spray can. And I love the way the artist was using graffiti to paint graffiti and end up with a beautiful piece of art.
Here is a somewhat glued-together origami bird.
And just around the corner of the origami bird is…another origami bird.
Funky music happening here.
Praying mantis on a Protea (the Protea is the national flower of South Africa).
This last wall reminds me of MC Escher’s etchings, and you can see that painter has left his phone number if you want to give him a shout.
I saw this graffiti on the pavement on a recent run. I like this kind of impromptu transient urban art, and of course the uplifting messages.
You are beautiful!
You are loved!
