A couple of years back I traveled to Tasmania our southernmost state. 'Tassie' most Aussies call it it steeped in history having been a convict colony. This small island is quite eerie and one can almost hear the anguish of the prisoners who had been banished to this place for what nowadays is not considered a crime - the history of one woman showed she had been sentenced to 14 years for being an 'incorrigible rogue'. Anyway, enough of the miseries of a history lesson.
I stumbled upon this painting whilst down there and really though that its being so unusual should be put up here for everyone to look at. There were a couple of other buildings in the same car park I took photos of that were also quite clever but seem to have filed them in a 'safe' place - will look for them at a later date and put them up in another blog so you can see.
I thought it was an absolutely brilliant concept and that we as photographers can learn by. How to take something quite bland and through sheer imagination 'see' the beauty of how it could look if we tinker with it. To me it was not only a novel way of brightening up an inner city car park, but an appreciation of someone else's mind at work. The skyline shot is the actual outline of the building, the rest has simply been painted on to give the appearance of something else quite different (not the bin or doorway though).

Thank you Bob. There are several other shots of similar but different buildings in this same carpark that were well done with totally different silhouettes but I seem to have misplaced them (darn computers!!) if I dig them up I'll put them up.

"Nice monochrome Graham. I like the tonality. I think it's the best of the series. I haven't seen one of these in ages. "
