Paintsmiths visit Heron Road

The Scaffolding recently came down on a new mural from Paintsmiths which, for this work, was Felix and Jack Tiernay for Bristol City Council and the Warm Up Bristol Campaign show home over at 56 Heron Road, Easton, BS5.

The mural itself is a stunning piece of work showing off the house itself and lots of examples of the old types of energy and the new sustainable energies that are now available.

The Life Sciences Building

I have taken some photos of the new University of Bristol Life Sciences building on Tyndall Avenue. I am really liking the architectural abstract parts of the building a lot, there are some great lines and curves. It’s nice to see a new building that isn’t a straight and boring box, like so many of the new buildings in Bristol.

Pinstriping

By chance I bumped into Paul Dorrington from Tootall pinstriping at this years Volksfest at Washingpool Farm in Easter Compton just outside of Bristol.

I only had a short time to spend with him but managed to take a few photos of him working on a car great painting  skills.

I found it very calming to watch him work and could have stayed a lot longer a real shame  I just didn’t have the time ……

Girl with a Pearl Earring by Banksy

While out on one of my walks I came across this today and it would seem  to be a new Banksy piece of work of “The girl with the pearl earring”, by the Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer, down by the docks near Hanover Place.

At the time I thought it was just a great piece of art and I just took my photos as normal only to find out a bit later on that it was by Banksy when I posted it on my Facebook page.

Banksy title for the piece is “Girl with a Pierced Eardrum”

The Secret Hideaway of a Tourist Boat

 

While exploring Tokyo I came across this little area that had loads of boats used for tourist and fishing moored up in I think Shiba, Minato City. I had a very pleasant half hour exploring around the boats and how the old and new worked well together with motorway and trains all around it and above, as well as factories and peoples houses and even though the area was very busy it felt very calm and peaceful!
