Alien Gardens, East London

blue sign for Allen Gardens that has been altered to say Alien Gardens, city of London , TOwer Hamlets,

When I first saw the above sign, I thought that the park’s name really was Alien Gardens.

idle tagging, Dublin

On John Street there is a large maroon coloured building.  A couple of murals have been painted on it.

At one end of the street is this mural by Marcamix, Evolve Urban Arts.

Beside it, is this longer mural.  Unfortunately I’m not who the artist is (or artists are).
