My Photo Buddies and I were a little bit early for the “Bring The Paint” display in the town last time we met up. So a couple of weeks ago we decided to see what progress had been made, and it gave us a chance catch up and have coffee and cake at one of our favourite coffee shops.
From our first visit. The guys painting the artwork were suspended in the cradle at the top of the building, made me dizzy just looking at them.
The painting now looks complete, it depicts some of what the city is known for, at the very top a Fox representing the local football team Leicester City (The Foxes), an Astronaut for the National Space Centre in the city, not sure what the third artwork is, but the last one is a Tiger representing the Leicester Tigers Rugby football club.
Got to admire the guys who painted this artwork dangling from the side of the building in a small cradle.
Not been out and about taking photographs very much lately, friends testing positive for the virus, and the heatwave here in the UK have put a temporary dampener on things. Though I did manage to meet up with the Photo Buddies a couple of weeks ago and find a few doors I hadn’t seen before.
If you would like to see images of some great doors from around the world check out Dan Antion’s excellent blog.
A few more doors from my walks into town. Check out Dan Antions excellent “Thursday Doors” blog to see a selection of doors from around the world. I no need to get out and about to add a few more doors to the archive.
It’s the “Bring The Paint” event in my home town this month. Met up with my Photo Buddies last week and we had a walk around some of the areas that have been painted. We were so lucky with the weather, as it’s been really cold and dull for June.
There was still a lot of painting going on, will probably meet up again with the Photo Buddies next week to see how it’s progressing.
I used my old Sigma DP1 to take these images, but really struggled to see the screen at times. If we go back next week (weather permitting) I’ll take one of my old Olympus cameras with a viewfinder.
Met my Photo Buddies in town today, it was great to meet up and have a few coffees and a catch up. Managed to capture a few down at heel doors for this weeks “Thursday Doors” post. To see some doors from around the world check out Dan Antions excellent blog.
A few more doors from my walks, mainly to the music pub or to meet friends at a pub in town. I’ve been trying to get my fitness levels up after testing positive for Covid at the beginning of March, I self isolated for 14 days and that took it’s toll as I spent most of the time in the house. Managed to walk 6 miles on Tuesday and it was OK, so getting there.

Spotted this Trellis on my way to the music pub on Friday afternoon. I was travelling light and only had my old Sigma DP1 with me. The band was really good and so was the fish finger sandwich served with fries and a side salad washed down with a couple of pints of Adnams Ghost Ship Bitter.
