I’m having a difficult time with the editor.
I hope this walk around a power box…
Turns out good.
I adore it!

Today, an Australian treat from Carolyn Page of ABC of Sprit Talk
“Look at the little crustacean. He has dollar notes in his shell..!!”
“and the little fish has dollar signs painted on it… I only discovered these when I zoomed in…. Don’t know the connection there; but think it’s worth a mention.”
This shark seems quite dapper in his elegant bow tie.
His shark pal sports a fancy jacket!
⭐ Thank you, Carolyn ⭐

“Just a little background on Newcastle:”
“Newcastle is a harbour city in the Australian state of New South Wales. Its plentiful beaches are linked by the Bathers Way, a coastal walk stretching between Nobbys Beach and Merewether Beach. The walk provides access to Bogey Hole, a convict-built ocean bath from the colonial period. Also on the path is the 1880s Fort Scratchley, a historic site and a viewpoint for spotting migrating whales.”
Although there are no whales on these boxes, Carolyn says:
“I’ve seen the migrating whales a couples of times. They are absolutely majestic! I especially love it when a mother and babe glide effortlessly, and seemingly slowly through the water. A brilliant sight.”
A little power box art, while I finish sorting out the new alley art.
I’ve been back 3 times, and there were 18 pieces painted over a weekend.
I am now certain, all of it was painted by women.
Next post will be from that alley, and by this artist. It’s just that I wanted to post this Pussy Cat first.
The traffic was endless,
…so I did what I could to capture the road side of the box.

Nature seems to rule on Vancouver Island.

On July 9, 2017, Argentina has 201 years to its independence history.
I felt Argentina when I saw this mini-mural, so I sent a pic off to Aquileana from La Audacia de Aquiles, after all, she lives in Argentina.
She replied, “YES that graffiti certainly seems to depict Argentina…. Tango… Perhaps milongas ( a tango style).”
It’s like I can hear and feel the music all the way up here in Canada!

⭐ BONUS ⭐ Aquileana sent us some street art from The Boca Juniors Stadium!
“I added several murals surrounding the stadium …
And two pics from the streets nearby it”
“Boca Juniors is one of the two most popular football clubs in Argentina…. Alongside River Plate…. they hate each other… I am a Boca Juniors´fan :D”
“The iconography of these murals is very ARGENTINE.”
⭐ EXTRA BONUS ⭐
Aquileana sent pics from Caminito!
“In (some of) Caminito´s murals you can see a typical family and a technique to write words called FILETEADO.”
“You can Google: Caminito, Buenos Aires, Argentina to see the location, etc…”
I certainly did, and it looks very interesting, not just the location, but the shops and the views!

Argentina’s flower – Ceibo
Argentina’s National Animal – Cougar or Puma- I thought this looked like one, although the smile is a bit sweet. It is from my collection.
Argentina’s National bird: Rufous Hornero
Your contributions are fabulous! I have learned more about Argentina in doing this one post, than in my entire life. (except for about Eva Peron)
