Walls of my World

For this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge, we are tasked with photographing Walls: Share an image of a wall that reveals something about a place, people, or you.

Here are some walls that I’ve discovered recently…

 

This hardware store seems to be using all available wall space for advertising. Some kind of desperation?

Coverage.

This wall is under a freeway, it’s actually holding up the freeway. Perhaps the weight of a few posters might affect the stability – lol.

Wall of Oppression.

This wall is behind the cafe in the hotel that I stay at in Melbourne. It is a large size reproduction of one of David Larwill’s works. I also like the sign posted on the cafe bench.

Finally, here is a print that I made from one of my photos of a birthday cake. I’ve had this printed on metal and it is on a wall in the patio of my back garden. It sums up my thoughts on life quite nicely.

I hope you have a fabulous week!

    What a beautiful collection of walls! The hardware shop especially is oddly picturesque. I need to copycat your patio sign and hang it somewhere visible 😉

    I’m sold on your last poster, so vibrant and cheerful. Wonderful that you printed it on a metal frame in your patio. It would be the first thing my eye would catch if I visited 🙂

      Thank you Loretta! Yes, it really works on the metal, it’s easily cleaned and the colours have come out perfectly.

    Your mantra is mine. I want it as my computer screen!

      I did a double take when I saw the hardware store so I had to get the phone out! We do get some crazy storms here with pounding rain and it has survived so far, I think it is coated with something. Xx
