Still Working

So I drove by the next day and the guys were back at it again finishing their work. The wall to the left of this photo is the one I mentioned for you to watch today! Yesterday it was just black and white. Still it's not done but check out the bottom left corner of this photo and then have a look at the next photo.My daughter and her husband were with me on the second visit. She noticed all of the spray cans and the different nibs that produce different spray strokes. This is a detailed operation here!
I don't get this one. I like more the figurative ones but they've got a story to tell. I was just born a little too late to understand it, that's all.
Watch this one emerge.From the Goonies.
Thanks guys....don't know your names except for Reo! Nice job...looking forward to the snow scene.

Makin' Art in the Neighborhood

It was a nice day in New Haven and while I was on my way to a museum I passed by a small building on Water Street. It has always been graffiti'd up in an artful way but today the artists were out and working, making art. The largest mural paid tribute to Thanksgiving, green beans and all.I struck up a conversation with the artists who are all friends and living in the New Haven area. They work and do this art because it's what they love and want to do. The City of New Haven won't give them a wall so the owner of the building lets them use his building to make their art....so in case you're wondering...it's legal! They want to show that graffiti doesn't have to show demon related stuff.
This sunflower was beautiful to see on a summer's late fall day in November.
Make sure you check this out....and then watch for tomorrow's entry!
They're serious about their work and their professionalism shows as well as their regard for the art form.
I think these lovelies are from the movie, The Wild, an animated movie about animals who live in a zoo and decide to go live in the wild. What they realize is that they don't know how to live in the wild outside of the confines of the zoo. Sounds rather Shawshank Redemption-eske to me.
Check back tomorrow for more transformations.

Wrought with Wrought, I am

OK, it's time to wrap it up with the wrought. Believe it or not there were still more wrought iron fences that I didn't photograph but, like with anything else, enough is enough and I walked home that day satisfied with what I had. I do think this last set has some of the more beautiful styles.

I know, you're asking...

Just how many different types of wrought iron fences are here in Wooster Square? Alot. Tomorrow should wrap it it. But for now, these get interesting.

Back to Wrought Iron Fences

Betch'a didn't think one little square could have so many different types of wrought iron fences. But there are. More to come in the days ahead.

Enough with the fences....

This is St. Michaels Roman Catholic Church which has been in Wooster Square for many years.

Don't Fence Me In, or Out

Over the next few days I will post photos of wrought iron fences that I've seen on Wooster Square. Quite amazing that there are so many, who'da thunk?
