Lens-Artists Photo Challenge# 170 Street Art

This week Lens Artist, Patti Moed has hopped onto one of Cee’s and my favorite topics., Street Art. I’m super late, but I couldn’t help to add to the fun.

My friend Jean visited me from CA, and last Sunday we drove down Senator’s Highway in Prescott that leads to Goldwater Lake. The houses along the way are Historic Street Art on their own, but many owners have created somet1hing more. It’s a harvest/Halloween Celebration. It was this photographer’s wonderland for Street Art.

Just Married Better Late than Never!

Is this marriage going to work out in the long run? Fortunately, they don’t have far to go. But as for a long life together….

These are not your general run-of-the-mill store-bought kind of Halloween decorations. Someone worked hard and long to created these spooky characters.

An army of parts

They probably collected spare body parts all year. Someone clearly would take your head off to create some mischief. I would not go by here at night.

A bony light in the dark.

If you did go down this street in the dark – which I don’t recommend, by the way – a string of these cute little guys attached to one gate will help light your way.

So that’s all of them until Monday when I join Cee’s week to host the PPAC (Photographing Public Art Challenge) post. I just couldn’t resist Patti’s topic. Thanks for the cute ideas, Patty, and feel free to post a link on Cee’s PPAC’s Friday post.

Hope all is well with everyone. Stay safe on dead end streets!

    • October is much better than September, for sure. The colors here are beautiful. I am healthier – not perfect, but so much better, and life is wonderful. Hope you’re having a great month as well, Yvette. πŸ™‚

      • Hi – the month is going way too fast and pretty good month overall – had a great visit with our son who lives in Texas – and met with two former students this last week – love when I have time for that! And then while meeting with one of them – we meandered over the art museum – just by chance we were seven minutes walk away – and saw a great floral display – I plan on posting about it – the flowers were so cool –

          • Oh that sounds like fun also!
            And I am also working on putting some of my flash fiction into a book – and Marsha / guess what? I might be able to finish it this week!
            Not sure if I mentioned the work in progress in the summer – but I hustled to get it to 85% done and then had the 24 stitches and so many other things come up – and just had to let it go! Which is life – right? Anyhow – I was a little discouraged because I have so many book projects that seem to between 50 and 80% done and so in early summer hustled to get one of them knocked out and chose that one – and then was not able to do it –
            And what is he quote? Man plans his ways but god directs our steps – and so we take it as we can – which your awesome perseverance post from Wednesday’s quotes really highlighted

  1. I just love it when small towns foster events like this one Marsha – what fun! I loved the bride and groom and laughed at your comment that they don’t have long to worry!! Someone posted a wonderful set of images of another town of pumpkin heads on scarecrow bodies, and another of scarecrows in unique positions. People are SO clever!! Thanks for the tip about Cee and also for joining us this week!

    • Yes, it was wonderful. She was checking on me to see how close to death I was. I think she was pleasantly surprised, and also a little worried still. My lungs are worse off than my legs right now. The dr. thinks I have pneumonia again, so I’m back on antibiotics. My legs are almost back to normal size, and I’m walking great. I went swimming with another old neighbor who visited Mesa and I went down to see her and spend a day in between doctor’s appointments. Last week was super busy! Thanks for visiting here. It always means a lot. I’ll do a camping trip on your sight during my next sit. πŸ™‚
