Pedestrians in Crosswalk

Sometimes it really is the small things that can brighten a person’s day, and this delightfully simple stencil on an everyday pedestrian sign is no exception.  Catch this dapper individual attempting to deliver a bouquet to someone on the other side of Main Street in East Haddam, CT!

This Guy

Spotted outside of the massage place on Main Street in Brattleboro, VT.  I like how they covered the relatively innocuous penis, but opted to keep the undercarriage shot with scrotum and anus perfectly visible.  Oh yea, and Visa/Mastercard are accepted.

Rusty Nails and Severed Limbs

Just driving around Old Saybrook, minding my own business, and BOOM!  What vortex have I just travelled through?  I could only think, “I don’t think I’m in Connecticut anymore.”  With a simple sign above a warehouse door that read, “Wrought Iron,” as well as semi-abandoned and fully complete works of fabulously morbid/whimsical/grotesque art, I was instantly smitten in the grittiest kind of way.  I will adventure further into this wrought iron vortex and report back what I find!  Until then, CHECK THIS OUT!

Speaking of Walls…

A photograph of photographs portraying the beautiful decay of the Berlin Wall, hanging on another wall in The Works Bakery/Cafe on Main Street in Brattleboro.  The exhibit is called “The Wall: Lessons from Berlin,” a seemingly poignant commentary on yet another (proposed) wall, with photography and text by artist William Dixon.  From the exhibit, “The Wall’s history illustrates, once again, the futility of this form of political problem solving.”

Work in Progress

The first signs of progress on the mural in the Harmony Parking Lot, seen today.  It’s been a long time in the making, and seeing the fresh paint on the walls makes my heART sing!  Keep your eyes open for more progress as the days wear on!

Views from Bellows Falls

Bellows Falls, VT is a short drive north of Brattleboro, and has much to offer the artistically-minded pedestrian who loves to find hidden treasures in a small town.  Keep your eyes open for some smile-worthy bits of creativity on your next visit!
