Mandala of ceramic shards, July 12, 2018
Just one small section of a sprawling work of public art called Potter’s Wall by Andrew Werby. Read all about it at this site here (created sometime in the 70s). The picture below is a closer look, which shows that the red circle is actually made of heart-shaped ceramic pieces and that the radiating orange bits are ceramic carrots. It also gives a closer view of the little ducky below the circle of red hearts.
Trapped sign, July 11, 2018
Another street sign overcome by greenery (for other examples see this post here, and this one here)! This sign here definitely has “no outlet.”
Multi-textured view, July 10, 2018
This scene caught my eye because of all of its wonderful shades of red brick along with the rough-textured tree trunk and its dark green leaves. On looking at it further it also has great examples of dappled light: the spots on the street and the bigger ones near the wall. Along with the dapples there are also shadows of the tree’s leaves on the wall. A lot going on!

Orange flower with streaks of red, July 7, 1018
I don’t know what kind of flower this is, but there were a hundred or so others like it where it was growing!
Jasmine climbing garage, July 6, 2018
A photo very similar to this one appeared in these pages a few weeks ago (see it here). That one featured a different kind of jasmine and a more recent paint job.
