We thought Graffiti might be difficult to find. How wrong we were! Our members found some amazing examples of excellent and interesting art work. These are on the first two pages.
Frances chose this portion of a mural in Leith, honouring one of the area's most well-known characters. The picture was taken by Anne. Frances admired the texture of the beard and the strong impression given of the man's expression from just part of the face. Anne also chose this picture.
Ruth also photographed the Arthur Williams picture, giving us some of its story. Arthur Williams was often seen at the foot of Leith Walk, where he lived as a homeless man for almost 30 years before being moved into a care home at the age of 81 in 2018. Shona Hardie is the local artist who painted this beautiful piece.
Both Ingrid and Neil chose this image from Ingrid. Neil found it very striking. He suggested cropping the left hand side to draw more attention to the dragon.
Marjorie chose Sandra's picture of Colinton Tunnel. She liked the curve of the tunnel and the people at the end.
Ruth found a lot of Graffiti and Street Art in Leith. She herself chose this picture of a postbox decorated with a knitted hat, dedicated to the postmen / women.
Joe chose this shot of the Fairy Boy of Leith with the proud artist, saying it combined the two topics of Graffiti and Street Photography in one picture.
Fiona liked the lines of her picture and the way that the colours of the graffiti complemented those of the sheds.
Phil chose this from Fiona's pictures because of its crazy content.
Ingrid chose this picture of the underside of a bridge taken by Gillian.
Gillian liked her own picture taken in Roseburn Park. She was pleased with the angle.
