06 Jul Art or Rubbish?

Source: Maclean Photographic


While out on the Woodland Exploration Workshop last Saturday we came across a couple of random objects that had been placed near to the beach at the River Tyne estuary here in East Lothian.

The first object was an old Singer sewing machine that had been painted pink with the word ‘LIFE’ on the side and placed on the top of one of the World War II anti tank concrete blocks that line the woodland area just off the beach.



The second item was an old draw front that had been had been painted bright blue with black metalwork and the words ‘black’ and ‘submarine’ had been written in black on each end. The draw end had been placed on one of the fallen tree trunks on the beach.


I don’t know the story behind why these objects were painted these bright colours and placed in this location, or to the meaning of the words written on the, but I have to be honest to say that I quite like this type of ‘Guerilla Art’.  It certainly makes for a slightly different subject to shoot with my Fujifilm X-T2 and 35mm f1.4 or 50-140mm f2.8 lenses.

Whether other people feel the same as I do or just views this stuff as rubbish I know not.  One mans piece of art is anothers piece of garbage I suppose.
