Life in Newburgh on Ythan

By Talpa

A tale of cycles and street-art.

A few days ago our daughter fell over our son's pushbike and dislocated her shoulder. So, another trip to Aberdeen this afternoon to give her a lift to her GP for a check-up. All is going well. The great cycle God in the sky must have taken against the House of Talpa as yesterday her own daughter, who is meanwhile studying in Holland, was knocked clean over by a cyclist! She too, is Ok, except that her spectacles were lost.
Anyway, the trip to the metropolis gave me a chance to photograph another of the street-art installations that appeared earlier this year. This one is by Alice Pasquini who, according to Prof. Google is a multimedia artist from Rome whose affectionate street art explores the brighter side of human relationships. Her art is said to revolve around the topics of femininity, encompassing murals, paintings, and illustrations which tell stories about various acts of kindness and love. It certainly cheers up the Shiprow. which is a particularly dark, dismal and mean thoroughfare.
