Bogotá, as many a major city in the South can boast of remarkable Street art. Here are a few shots, taken last week. Above photo (c)ourtesy my niece, Diana Catalina.
“On your marks!”
Photography rule number 13: “Never take a picture from a car”. Much less while it is driving. Rule number 14: “Rules are made to be broken”. Can’t always stop the car, climb down, take the picture, and drive away. 🙂
Usaquén neighbourhood, Bogotá.
Café art. Carrera 19. (Wot? Not Street Art? I put the rules, Mate) 😉
Quetzalcoátl, or Kukulcan, the Feathered Serpent.
Beer Art. (A new category. Great potential). At a craft brewery in Pacho, outside Bogotá.
Romy Schneider (1938-1982). A German actress born in Austria (the year of Anschluss) she may be best known outside Europe for her role in Sissi Empress. But from the sixties on she became a major actress in French cinema, acting for most of the major directors. She had a tragic life, lost her son in a stupid accident in 1981. But then all accidents are stupid, aren’t they? And died in 1982, at the age of 43. The above photo (Café art again) must have been taken in 1959-1960. She was 21-22.
Crocodile Art. Outside a Lacoste shop. I wonder: do Frat boys still wear Lacoste shirts? And loafers without socks?
Mind the dog.
“Juegasiempre”. Playalways. Toxicomano appears to be a leading street artist in Bogotá.
“Do not forsake me oh my darling…” (For the French-inclined: “Si toi aussi tu m’abandonnes…”)
Smile. Remember, all is recorded. Everywhere. Every minute. Every second. And then you are sold to Cambridge Analytica…
“An enraged monster wipes out an entire city. GREED!” Reminded me of a comment by Paul, a Scot bar-tender in Covent garden, a few years back: “The main prroblem in the worrld today is grreed.” Sad but true.
Thank you for flying Equinoxio Airways. A pleasure to have you on board. Always.
To be continued.
