L ♡ V E
I don't post as many silly snaps of street art here as I used to because pedantic me really likes seeing them in their new home, as a collective group of "things", on my Tumbl(r)ing Wall Of Walls.
However, the other day, as I was filing a new batch of pictures away, I thought these two, shot on different days, one in our 'hood and the other across the waters on Cockatoo Island, had to be shared. With those of you who are here for "pwetty things" but have absolutely no interest in my Wall of Walls. Well, not interested enough to wander over for a gander (walls are "pwetty" too, you know?) from time to time.
Anyway, about the pictures...I think they so belong together, don't you? Besides the obvious L♡VE connection, the similarity in colour and the texture of the surfaces, I like how the chalk scrawIs make such an apt caption for the stencilled image. Like the voice-over to a visual in a film. The front and back cover of a record (if I ever get a modern-day Pop Yeah Yeah band going!). A speech bubble in a frame of a comic. A little bit like one of those couples who are so in love and in tune with each other that they often finish each other's sentences. A pairing that's meant to be. No? OK, maybe it's just me who's in a koochy-woochy lovey-dovey kind of mood. Haha.
