3772. Upfest 2021 75×75 (7)

Our household self-isolation is about half done now and it is getting a bit boring. When you can’t leave the front door for anything, the fear of missing out (FOMO) starts to build, and for me, this is manifested in how many new pieces of art I might never get to see, such is the high turnover. I confess, it really gets to me, but on the other side of this, it exposes my obsession, which probably needs moderating. A time for introspection.

Meanwhile, I have got a vast reserve of unpublished photographs that could keep me posting for a couple of years at least. Upfest pieces will always get prominence on Natural Adventures, and this astonishing piece from Peter Sheridan is really absolutely stunning.

This one seemed to creep under everyone’s radar, and I don’t think I have seen any work in progress shots on social media. The finished piece was suddenly there, appearing as if by magic. The character piece creates an extraordinary atmosphere and sensation of being locked up, one I can utterly relate to at the moment, and one that probably reflects the past 18 months or so.

It is so good, I’ll just pause and leave you to enjoy it.

  1. Indeed a brilliant piece that did just appear out of nowhere
    I only have very washed out photographs as the sun was in the wrong place at the time I spotted it.
    Will be trying for better ones today.

    You might consider your first place to go once lockdown has ended to be Purdown as The PWA have taken out half of all the concrete walls in one of those circles and it looks great . . .

      1. Whilst I’m sure we all love the sunshine for many very obvious reasons it makes photography that much more difficult if not impossible as far as getting any decent shots are concerned.
        Yesterday I had a very different problem whilst videoing a wall down at the Deaner during a monumental downpour lol . . . 😂

  2. Did Bristol again today and finally got some good shots of this and some of the other failures of a few weeks ago. A few new ones going up along North Street today also Andy Council doing those narrow alleyways / tunnels near Conor Harrington’s piece. Generally good day as partially cloudy.
