Here’s how it works:
1. Each week, we’ll provide a theme for creative inspiration. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Friday when the next photo theme will be announced.
2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “Weekly Photo Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ tag.
3. Subscribe to The Daily Post so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements. Sign up via the email subscription link in the sidebar or RSS.
Weekly Photo Challenge: Illumination
Here in New Zealand we have many “Street” artists or
people who love to scribble and write on any open walls or fences,
we call this art
T o prevent these people to mark their spaces
the council decided to do their own art work .
On this wall – colorful art.
The electricity boxes are also painted in lovely colors and art work.
I love the idea of painting these boxes like this.
I hope the other artists will leave them alone now.
Ja ek hou ook hiervan. Hoop die ander vat hulle maar verby.
Dis maar altyd aan die einde van die vakansie n hengse gekrappery op alles hier. Maak moeilik skoon ook. Bushokkies is nou maar gaas waarop niks geskryf kan word nie
I love the electricity boxes – took some photos too! Yours are better I think – great!
These painted walls and boxes are real tourist attractions
They are really beautiful. Makes the city brighter and more colourful.
They are really bright and beautiful. I think they are going to become a tourist attraction!
The power boxes are painted here in Australia too. They are all done by different artists who submit their designs to council for approval, great idea, so colourful
That is a real good thing. Here they also let different artist do the painting.
It would be a good project to take photos of some of the best ones… 🙂
Yes a good idea! There are some nice ones in and around Wellington.
Same here on the Gold coast. Wonder if other countries have the same idea?
I haven’t seen it in South Africa!
We don’t have these great painted features in our city, perhaps I should send the council some of your photos and suggest they look into it. They do look really lovely.
It is a big improvement – much better than all the tagging! They also paint the bus stop small places where you can sit and wait for the bus(forgotten how you call it)
i love this sort of decorative work, makes our outdoor spaces much more attractive!
They are very colorful and they catch the eye!
I love graffiti–it brightens up a neighborhood. What I hate is taggers who destroy things just to destroy. These are lovely.
I agree with you, I really hope that the taggers as you say don’t scribble over these beautiful paintings
