Covering up the Unsightly

Now, I feel this trio of photographs is the sort of thing that Owen publishes in his successful blog - The Magic Lantern Show - but as this is not too far from my home and a very long way from Paris, I'll let him off and publish it on my own blog! Imagine the scene, someone has the idea of placing an ISO container behind a Church Centre in Somerset. You know the sort of thing - a long, large metal box of the type used to carry goods by ship, truck and rail. A box that isn't easily hidden in the countryside. Enter the Old Bakery Artists group from Radstock, armed with paint, brushes and a good design and . . . this is the result. I think it is pretty fantastic. The mural [or as some of us say in England, 'Muriel'] really does blend in. What say you?


  1. Alors là, révérence ! Very good idea ! Comment rendre le laid beau ! Bien vu Laurie !.............. et... non rien !..
    Ciao ! A plus ! 8')

  2. I love the idea of artwork on the trash containers. Of course, in the U.S. all the containers are just covered in graffiti.

  3. Best use of camouflage I've ever seen.
