Park Street V

Public Planting & Banksy 16072009 066

And here is the real Banksy next to yesterday’s picture. Coincidentally the building originally housed a family planning advice centre when this was done. The council were going to erase it, but the Bristol public voted for it to stay. The blue paint was ‘added’ the first week the Banksy exhibition opened at the City Museum in June. As you can see not all of it could be removed without ruining the original painting.

Park Street IV

Banksy & Bristol 094

At the bottom of Park Street in Bristol is a proper ‘street’ Banksy. I spotted these next to it the first time we went to see the Banksy exhibition at the City Museum.

The second time I went to the exhibition a couple of weeks later, these had been removed.

Running London

London 006

There’d been a 10K run in London last Sunday. We’d seen loads of people on and near various Tube stations in running gear, numbered and with medals round their necks. Quite a lot of the usual route of our tourist bus the first time round was diverted because the streets were closed. Elsewhere, traffic chaos reigned.

You can also see some of the art for sale at Green Park – it’s all along the railings bordering the park. I think it’s there just at weekends, or even just Sundays.
