Views 177 Unique 83 Award Shortlist   

Somebody's watching you!

By Glostopcat  
Banksy's latest street art that has appeared on the side of a house in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire in the early hours of Sunday morning. These images were all taken early yesterday morning apart from V5 which is a large view of the artwork from a local website. The shadows that were cast yesterday morning were very strong which is perhaps appropriate given that these are shady characters pictured!

Heard about this on the radio yesterday, great to see it, you were very quick off the mark. I like V1 best but all good.

I was watching coverage of this last night - thanks for uploading. V5 is the best for me, it gives enough context to be more rather than less disturbing. The satellite dish works perfectly with the story.

This was done in the early hours of Sunday morning Ann, he'd staked out the place and had been staying in a house fairly close by for a week beforehand

Many thanks for all your comments folks they are greatly appreciated, I may revisit sometime and try and get some candid shots with people in interacting with it and some views of it from further away. I'm glad you like all these, v5 is a press shot, I didn't see the satellite dish until I'd already crossed the road so it was too late to go back that day, Ed
