A couple of weeks ago I took a week off work and decided to go and visit my mother and her partner on the south coast for. I hadn’t seen them for over a year and it was so good to spend time with them face to face. Of course, while I was there my mother put me to good use getting me to do some odd jobs around the house that had been building up for a while.
One such job was to drive them into Chichester and help with taking watches to be mended and buy some kitchen things in Lakeland. Of course, the opportunity to photograph some lovely doors presented itself and I took leave of my duties for five minutes to photograph these beauties. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.
So that’s it for another week, I hope you have a good one.
If you have made it this far, you probably like doors, and you really ought to take a look at the No Facilities blog by Dan Anton who has taken over the hosting of Thursday Doors from Norm 2.0 blog. Links to more doorscursions can be found in the comments section of Dan Anton’s Thursday Doors post.
Having only recently posted about JPS in Weston-super-Mare, I was lucky enough to find this wonderful JPS cat while staying with my mother in West Wittering recently.
I knew the cat was somewhere in Chichester, but wasn’t sure where. I don’t know if you have ever been to Chichester, but its compass layout should be a simple enough plan to map out in your brain. I, however, and I know I am not alone in this, really struggle to know where on earth I am when in one of the four main streets. This cat I hope will help me to navigate better in future, along with the wonderful Stik not too far away.
This cat by JPS has been stencilled in other places too…another post maybe. It is quite beautiful. The stencil itself is exceptional and the colouring really makes it stand out. If you look carefully you will see the the letters J P S disguised in the cat’s fur. One of my favourite stencils.
My mother tipped me off about this one a couple of weeks ago when she saw it on a shopping trip in Chichester. I cannot express how pleased I was, firstly that my mum is quite cool and secondly that JPS has hit Chichester with one of my favourite stencils.
I wrote about this stencil (in Bristol) in my second street art blog, and it remains one of my favourite works of any street artist.
Chichester is one of those cities that has no culture of street art, but held a festival in 2013 (I think), so it is all a bit organised if you know what I mean. The JPS piece adds a little bit of spice as I’m not too sure it was a part of the festival.
