Award Shortlist   

No Banksy for sure.

By HarrietH
I am back with this very weak contribution. When Big Sister was removed someone had the bright idea of painting the site white. I couldn't help but think it was an open invitation for graffiti artists but I never thought that something quite as bad as this would appear.
My eye is healing well the doctor says, but I am posting this using one eye and my old glasses.
I am looking forward to getting back to my camera with full eyesight. I took this from my window this morning so I am on the way to "start shooting". Thanks to all for their get well wishes.

A rather gruesome piece of graffiti, Maureen Sad Glad to hear the op is over and done with, but don't rush things, allow everything to heal as it should before you start getting too adventurous Smile Carol

We'll watch the space with interest. Meanwhile we can admire the passers by!
Your last image had a girl in shorts, now it's warmer wear - is winter on it's way in Portugal too?
So glad to hear you are on the mend. Wishing you a speedy recovery. Cathy
