Along the Tracks (Con’t.)

One of the questions that comes to mind, when viewing and shooting street art is: what does this say about our society/culture? Some people view it as vandalism while others view it as a form of contemporary art. Because the palette is in or near a public space does that change the dynamics? Or. like the images I have been presenting, are mostly out of the view of the public, but on a BNSF railway right of way does that change things? To get this space both the artist and I have to trespass across those railroad tracks. The palette in these works is just a retaining wall, so maybe the work enhances the large, drab concrete space?

I guess it begs the age old question: What is art? 

We all have to answer that for ourselves, I guess.

Being a mouse in a human world has its challenges. Charley has overcome the coffee cup challenge, but the water glass is another matter.

Lincoln Park

Some of the squirrels in the park are very people-friendly. If there is the slimmest chance of soliciting food from you, they will allow you to get  really close. The oddest squirrel experience: A squirrel near Sabin School in Portland ran down the side of a maple tree and up to my grandson, who was walking next to me, and jumped on his leg, then ran off in haste. I have no idea what that squirrel was thinking, but it was really odd, this random squirrel attack on a toddler!DSC_2987-001 DSC_2988-001 DSC_2990-001
