The worth visiting Thursday’s Special themes created by Paula
The inspiring theme this week “Urban Art

Urban art is a multifaceted concept.
Organized murals.
Unorganised murals.
Fountains or water effects.
Sculptures and statues.
Architectural additions.
Light fixtures and lighting effects.
– and so on.

So often we forget to see where we go.
– It could be urban art too.


Iron trees

J 66

The tram feel at home among the forest of ‘iron trees’.
It’s dependent on them – without them no energy for propulsion.

It isn’t ‘wild trees’, but rather a kind of ‘urban trees’.
Trams are excellent for traveling, but actually only in urban areas.

With the inspiration from Ailsa and her absolutly worth visting blog
this is my version of the travel theme “Trees“.

Heavy street metal


Urban logistics, with structure and comfort requirements
which corresponds to our expectations require some “heavy street metal” 
so even though many aren’t thrilled with the heavy traffic in the street scene
there is in many cases no alternative that matches our way of life.

From the streets of Liverpool UK.


All our garbage and waste don’t move by itself.


All the things we use to make ourselves comfortable often come from afar
container ships and trains can’t serve every corner of geography.


Public transport is a collective expectation or requirement – in urban settlements.


The fire department in the city of Liverpool on the road into action
expectations for response times in cities is razor sharp.

Weekly Photo Challenge (solitary)

Word Press Weekly Photo Challenge Theme

This issue must certainly be found further out in the countryside
or are there signs too, within the cities – that makes one think of solitary
some sits perhaps between 2 chairs or choose both solutions
community and solitary.

Many people are lonely in cities
some have been deselected of the so-called community
others have chosen no to the community or parts of it
but still want to enjoy some of the community’s benefits.

Signs indicating this are enclosed gardens behind the houses
where not the most determined paparazzi can sneak in sexy photos
additional walls as a barrier to urban life
motorbike is presumably also a loner characters
shutters in the windows precisely angled
as can be observed from inside to outside, but not from the outside in.

Signs indicating the desire to soften the enclosed unit is (maybe) mailboxes, doorbells, street lights, fire hydrant and in particular the large common aerial which circulates signals to television, radio, mobile phones and similar.

urban solitary or not


Weekly Photo Challenge (urban)

 Time heals all wounds.

Earlier this year, in the early may, a larger town tree was cropped very strongly – it looked at first sight so violently out there in the little main town and one might think that it would influence sphere in town long after – now it’s late august and as it’s said then all wounds healed by time – the tree shape the town sphere but in a different manner than expected.

Nature is, even into urban sphere, strong and full of life. 


The first picture taken today and the second took almost 4 months ago
the large tree has taken up the fight
the little tree has seen his gigant role model struggle
and very interesting – the house behind the tree
is not progressed further in the craftsman project. 

All the wounds cityscapes over time will get
will be blurring of “the future cobweb”
whether they are good or bad “wounds”

But wounds are wounds even if they are healed
they will always be there – underneath the enamel.

With people, it’s working the same way
their wounds are often hidden by the veil of the future
you can’t always guess their behavior
it need not be a threat
but can be a challenge too
reading others attitude and behavior
and by interest in others
so one do many things easier for oneself.
