Abandoned now Art 2

Abandoned now Art featured an old house in Umbilo.

This follow on post features two street-art photos from North Coast Road and then a few buildings needing some art or other “love” in the Point Redevelopment area.

Abandoned now Art

I updated my “About” post this morning with one more photo and also added links to some of my other posts.

Go check it out and let me know what you think.

The photos below are of an abandoned house in Umbilo Road, Durban.

If I had stumbled upon PYMCACity Lifer or Fatcap before taking the photos, I would have concentrated more on the art.

Another visit to this house and some similar locations now seems inevitable. This art seems to “talk” to my camera.

Perhaps some knowledgeable artists can tell us a bit about the art on the walls below.

These chaps can really snap 2 (and paint)

Some fellow bloggers really enjoyed These chaps can really snap. This got me thinking:

“Hmm… let me showcase some more hot-shot photographers (and one painter) in These chaps can really snap 2!”

As with the previous blog, I have attached links to the artists’ profiles (below their photos) so you can see more of their cool work and talent.

I obviously take no credit for their work and am happily advertising what is freely available for all to view (gloat over) on the net.

The next two photos are from Ben Myburgh who previously featured in this blog as “The local telephone man”

 

And now I must read up about HDR and what it might do for my pics!

Also click on the artist’s links as some of them offer online tutorials.

Instead of ending off right here; let me be cheeky and add one of my own favourite photos. Ben Myburgh helped me edit it.
