I was glad to see that Marsha put her post up despite the holidays and that she included my last week’s PPAC post among the featured ones. We are not done with Piran yet. Today: street art in four locations.
The first two photos I took in 2017 at the Piran primary school’s playground. Quite wicked, considering.
The next three were taken this summer on the way up to the church. You will notice the prominent marine theme with some Alien help.
Next we descend to the port where a shark is hiding, and you know that at the very end of the shallow Adriatic sea there is no real danger of these beasts, or such interventions wouldn’t be met with approval.
The final location is the Punta behind the tip of the peninsula on which Piran is laid out. The first time I noticed art there was in 2018 and this summer I took more photos to see what was new and compare.
At the end of the wall a funny thing happened once when I was alone:
I wished to take a photo of the last beastie on the wall but my view was blocked by a young woman with her back turned towards me, wearing the kind of bikini that makes you… well, notice. I waited for her to move but she was unaware of me or my intention. So I approached and murmured something like “excuse me, just one photo”.
She looked at me in a peculiar way – and struck a pose.
I was too taken aback to simply click and instead exclaimed: “No, no, I meant to ask you to move away!” Talking about the nose to the ground. What a poor photographer I’d make! I laughed all the way home.
You will see who waited for me in her place the next time I passed a month or so later.
