Marsha Ingrao of Always Write and Cee Neuner have teamed up to co-host a new challenge which is about photographing public art. This sounded like fun to me so I am kicking off with a bunch of photos from my archives which I hope is OK.
This first one was something I spotted from the car when some friends and I were on a trip to northeast Tasmania. I thought it was really clever.
The remaining three were all taken around Geeveston where I used to live. “The Eye” was painted by a Hobart street artist I believe and sat in the yard of a local business that dealt in scrap metals. It was done several years ago and is no longer there but when it was new it was amazing.
I’m not sure of the backstory of the ute on top of the roadhouse but it’s sat there for quite a few years and I consider it to be art. The two logs that are placed on the road just before you get to Geeveston have been there for a long time. The artwork, which I think is painted on canvas or similar material was added to brighten up the entrance to the town. It was not far from my old house so I saw it often.
