Peaceful solitude

a brotherhood of silence

fishing together.

Perfect day

A stroll all alone

talking to those departed;

no longer alone.

  • Roughly once a year I visit Bracklesham in West Sussex and spend a couple of hours finding peace, looking for fossil shark teeth and remembering departed loved ones. The perfect way to recharge my batteries. Ready for the long slog to Christmas now. 

899. Unity Street (6)

It has been a while since I posted anything by Thelochnessmonster, who in previous posts I had referred to as OHMS, because these were the letters he used in his pieces. Another feature of his pieces is mention of the ‘splab gang’ or ‘splab lads’. I don’t know if this is a crew who spray with him or whether he is simply referring to them.

Thelochnessmonster’s pieces are often very busy and unlike many of the Bristol (graphic) artists he specialises in wobbly lines and a distinct lack of clean finish.

In this piece, which looks to be a commentary on weapons and war, there are references to automatic rifles, to yin and yang, to peace and to love. definitely an interesting piece and also interesting selection of colours. Always unusual.

812. Albert Park (2)

One of the most famous graffiti landmarks in Bristol is in the heart of St Pauls, just off Ashley Road. It is now in its fourth incarnation (I think) and is of a camel, usually saying something in a speech bubble.

The piece is by Feek and 3Dom, and when the wall was recently rendered, I had my doubts that the camel would return, but return it did, and it is as fine as any of its predecessors.

I don’t quite know why there has been a succession of camels here, but as I said at the start, it has become something of a landmark. Increase the Peace.
