Portfolio 5 – Strange Adventures

17 07 2013

Halifax has its share of creative public art and approved graffiti, many of which have been approved by the municipality or various businesses. These works make for interesting and often inspiring strolls through downtown Halifax and the various urban settings of Halifax Regional Municipality and I enjoy collecting examples of spontaneous and supported art using photography.

The photograph below is of a sidewalk art panel next to the Strange Adventures store in Halifax taken on one late summer afternoon few weeks ago. Each sidewalk segment in front of the store is a panel depicting comic book characters and is painted in various colours.  This one caught my attention due to the colours and the two characters facing each other, still vivid despite the slow wear of passing-by feet.  The dark green weeds growing through the cracks in the shade has become a strong white in infrared. The worn blue paint has resulted in a lovely false-colour blue in the infrared image.


Here is what the original looked like when freshly painted!
