Graffiti not always artistic or even funny

Some people consider all graffiti as vandalism. I have mixed views as sometimes it can brighten up a run-down area particularly when the buildings have been abandoned. And some of it is funny and inventive and often artistic.

These were designed by Claes Oldenberg as part of the city’s “Art in Public Places” initiative.

German Pigeons

The Germans have a reputation for well-engineered solutions and this pigeon is no exception.

It’s living in an abandoned building near the up-and-coming port/harbour district in Munster and presumably hoping property prices will rise.

If you look carefully you’ll see the access to further living space and a handy perch for guests.

P1010046I’ve posted before about pigeons and I think they’re a lot cleverer than we give them credit for.
