...something like "A beautiful mess"...
Chris: Indeed so Ray - it reminds me of the meals I used to produce for my hapless household in the days when I used to imbibe quantities of liquid refreshment..
it's like pealing off the wallpaper in a hundred year old house Chris... you never know what your going to find... fun shot !....petersmile
Chris: As seen in the street Peter
Art is always intended!
Chris: We will have to discuss this at a later date Elizabeth
Gotta love abit of fly posting here & there

It's all in your eye - or your face
Chris: You're quite right Lisl, real in-your-face stuff. But as it is completely unintended art I can't criticise this aspect
Very creative Tiffo. You have seen the picture which shows you to be a true photographer at heart
Chris: You are wonderful! I take back all the drivel I wrote about your own picture this morning..
Delicious, as an apple bite, Chris
Chris: Isn't she JC
Bold Brash and Bright
Chris: Couldn't resist it Martin

In any case it is not the 'silk-stocking-district' (a new word I learnt today from my newsletter).
Chris: I am confused Philine - "silk stocking district" is not a word but a phrase which I an unfamiliar with

What I like about this Tiff, above all else, as often is the case with your blog, is the title.
Chris: I could have called it BILL PHILLIPS SITS DOWN ALL DAY - but why state the obvious..
Oh, what you see when you're not looking for it.
Chris: Indeed so Mary: thank you

I want to know more about the silk stocking district ;o)

Decaying posters are always a good source of abstraction. Someone did make art out of them, I just can't remember who.
Chris: If you remember let me know Mike: I was thinking foolishly if I made a collection I would be the first to have done so but of course nothing's new

I want to know about that district too..
Well seen,Chris,another Turner prize entrant. smile
Chris: Hahaha - indeed Frank
lovely Chris.. bet shne will like this!
Chris: Hopefully so Ronke
At least as good as much that is intended!
Chris: Some of which is intended is a lesser thing than this is Tom
The adverts themselves may be slowing deteriorating, Chris, but the colours have remained as bright as new.
Chris: They have indeed Bev
It is quite amazing what is left behind when posters are only partially removed, you have been quite inventive with these ones.
Chris: Thank you Brian
Looks like a Halloween leftover
Chris: Hehehe - yes it does!
Works well. Are the evil pumpkins after Snow White?
Chris: That is certainly what it looks like John..

Yes, worthy of some long term display in Tate Modern or similar.
Chris: And worth £ millions..
A cryptic message: "Live on the"... what could it mean? Must investigate...
Chris: And which "live" is it Larry - live your life or live on stage?
