Cool Graffiti


I’ve been spending Saturdays in Pontypridd in the Welsh Valleys for the last few weeks, because DS2 is attending a Maths Masterclass at the University of Glamorgan in Trefforest.  Walking along the river Taff from Trefforest to Pontypridd today (fortified by cups of tea at every cafe I reached!) I found some colourful graffiti on the dual carriageway bridge supports.

I also saw a heron sitting on a rock but it was too far away for the photo to come out properly.  It was sitting on the same rock a few weeks ago and if it hadn’t moved its head, I would have suspected that it was a statue….

Here is Pontypridd across the park, with the low lying clouds over the hills behind.

Thank you to Joan at Sixsisters, who has featured my Etsy shop in her blog and said some very flattering things about me!

  1. Liz, I often wish that some of these very talented graffiti artist had some guidance to develop their talent and steer it in another direction. I see some amazing stuff on the trains in our area.

  2. Love the graffiti pics Liz. I finally got your blog listed on mine as a fav. I take so long to figure things out. Thanks for the mention.

    The National Portrait Gallery is showcasing some graffitti art. I was amused when they said the museum people were hesitant to let the artists paint directly on the gallery walls, so had the works executed off-site on four panels. These artists are very talented and it’s nice to see them getting some recognition.

  4. Liz – these graffiti pix are divine! Such energy!
    I take grafitti pictures wherever I go, too – but these are super. Thanks for sharing them.

  5. old painting spot of mine and a few others no longer usuable because of the new cycle path 🙁
