52 Weeks Of Donna's Life

Donna's Photo Challenge

50. Urban Scenery

2 Comments

While walking through the Rosemary District in Sarasota, Florida, I spied this mural of abstract art. It fascinated me so I attempted to capture it with my camera. The mural was divided into three parts by two jutting cement block pillars and the artist had cleverly incorporated these raised areas into his artwork. But, try as I may, Photoshop would / could not merge the pictures into a panorama. After trying every “which-way”, I have resorted to presenting this mural as three different parts from left to right. Note that the artist used color in the middle picture only — while depicting the left and right sides in black and white.

Beginning on the left side. . .

Shown is the middle section where the artist used some color.

More of the black and white on the right side.

While the Rosemary artist’s name is not visible, perhaps this can be construed as graffiti. In another part of town, I photographed what looked like a gecko or lizard — and it was in great detail showing many shades of blue. It was signed and so I would guess it was done as contracted (in some way) by the shop’s owner. The artist, in this case, was truly patient. Look at the detail.

Wonder how long this took the artist?  Look at the detail!

An enthusiastic amateur photographer, I enjoy picturing the events, people, animals and things in my life. And so joining in the "52 Week Challenge" of interpreting life through a lens sounds as if it will be a lot of fun -- presenting my view through the lens and seeing how others in our photography group interpret their views concerning a given subject.

  1. I would guess it took the artist a long time to finish his/her work. Hopefully, it was not done in the hot summer months.

  2. I’Ve seen the gecko mural before and am amazed at the detail. Nice shot.
