My laptop is fried. “·$&/(()=??=¿¿(&·”!!ª!·%$%&/! Darn. Tamales. Godverd… Zut alors! Had it coming but it is aggravating: either I have to change the motherboard or I need to retrieve the data from the hard-drive. Time-consuming. Worse is: to-day’s post was stored in the bloody nuisance. 😦 Soooo. Plan B. Got other photographs from another backup. (Always have a Plan B!) Switch to Mac. Street art again. Expanded. The above octopus was taken in Mexico city. An ad for a black Rhum brand. Alvaro Obregón avenue.
XIVth century street art: The devil and the Virgin Mary. Bologna. (Strange vicinity)
Mural. Mexico city.
Another example of XIVth-XVth century street art. Firenze.
A back alley in Paris, 15e arrondissement. A modern-day Cosette?
A delicate lace curtain painted on a steel door. Bologna
El pasado puede ser un regalo para nuestro futuro. The past can be a gift for our future. Mexico city. “El universal” is one of the oldest newspapers in Mexico.
Construction site. Mexico city. Noticed the barred window in the background to the right. The end of Revolution?
Forbidden acces to non-“addicted” to work. (A play-on-word on “addetti”. The word takes other meanings in other languages).
Paris. 15e arrondissement.
Nathalie Wood (Isn’t she lovely?) and James Dean. A poster under the arcades in Bologna.
Window shop. Paris. 6e arrondissement
Mexico city. The statues were put on the street by a new financial institution. Top yield guaranteed!
Detail of the same.
Wrought-iron detail of a door in Bologna.
“Crisis? What crisis?” (Paris, Krankreich)
Outside the restaurant Lapérouse. Quais de la Seine. Left bank.
(Strictly) forbidden to introduce bicycles. Bologna. Even when it comes to placing official notices, Italians can’t escape art!
(Performing) street art. Milan. Easy? Look closely where and how the two performers are sitting. Without skipping a breath.
