I am neurotic about this. I am not artistic and I think my collage is rubbish. I think the photo is quite good, but it smacks a bit of vandalism, which is definitely not environmentally friendly.
However, I have come up with something else. Admittedly it is not artistic as I only had to press a button on my camera to get it. More of a craftsman, then. It is called 'Courtesy of Hull City Council - People need Green Spaces'. This was taken in an extremely rough part of my home town, Hull. This is the sort of place where I have been walking into town and has spent time conversing with fellow dog walkers about their dogs while they swigged out of lager cans in the day, like they spent much of their time walking about with a lager can in their hands. Also it is near a Salvation Army Hostel and if I have my kids with me I tell them not to look certain people in the eye if we are walking along.
This is what Hull City Council have done. They can do my artwork for me as I certainly pay my taxes. They have made a pleasant flower bed (admittedly low maintenance, look at all the bark chippings, probably left over from building playgrounds) in an urban environment and have also built a big wall protecting housing areas from any general louch behaviour which may go on at night. But not only have they built a big wall somebody has decided to decorate it with blue and white bricks. It is a wall that somebody has cared about making and it is pleasing to the eye. A decorated wall. So the people round there get a flower bed and they get some aesthetically pleasing functional architecture as well.
Hull City Council is an old socialist Council and sometimes it is a bit incompetent, but I think it's heart is in the right place.
