Street Art from Florida (Manatees and Ray)

Hello everyone

some public art to start the week off with –

Here is some fun street art from the Florida Keys

I was actually looking for the yoga class info when we took these shots – but they were not having them that weekend

Closing with some humor

  1. Yvette, I love the wrap-around building art, vibrant and so cute. Great quote as well and so true … often we want clarity straightaway in our lives and realise later it just doesn’t work like that!

  2. I enjoyed my visits to the keys. I meandered around the town and found some interesting placed.
    I didn’t see these. Thanks for posting. The Hemingway house was an intereting tour and one I craved to see.
    Hope you had the opportunity to visit it, Yvette. Have a good week …. Isadora 😎

    1. Hi Isadora – I think that those photos were taken near the upper keys (and perhaps Islamorada) but might have been middle keys – I just know it was nowhere near key west (one of lower keys) and I hope everyone gets to visit the Hemingway house – well for those who appreciate hemingway’s work – and glad you were able to ….

  4. What fun murals. I love Charlie Brown! He’s always in a pickle. The ocean art is magnificent. Thanks for sharing, Yvette. I will be doing this week’s PPAC as well.

  5. Lovely street art and captures. With street art painted on the wall like that, the artists would probably need to get permission from somewhere. Here in Melbourne, we’ve got some street art high up on walls that are stunning. Must be quite the effort to make art up so high.

    That large shot is pretty candid. Poor Charlie Brown stuck there at the back of the truck. At least he has a good view of the road. Thoughtful quote too. Sometimes we don’t know how to interpret uncertainty until much later on. It isn’t until we have lived and we learned that we look back and see it was a time much needed. Hope you are well heading into the holiday season, Y.

    1. Hi Mabel / so nice to read your comment
      I was just thinking about you because Frank did a beach walk on shadows and ended with a song from Lyndsey Sterling – and she always reminds me of you.

      And the art in these photos are part of the dive shop advertising and I think they had to get approval
      And paid for it and then the artists used scaffolding and all that to get up high –
      And it really is effective because when you drive by it is hard to kiss and has that color and sea life that calls to ya!

      1. That is so lovely to hear about Frank and Lindsey Stirling. I have been thinking of you as I’ve been writing my book.

        That’s creative advertising through street murals. It’s definitely eye catching not to mention meaningful work with soul.

        1. well I am always here to offer some input on your manuscript – even though I am sure
          you know that you need to monitor getting feedback while maintaining flow.
          This is a little different – but my husband produced a few albums and early on he had a team
          to provide insight, feedback, etc. – But it actually was not as helpful as he thought it would be because
          there was too much input and it did pull from what he wanted in his gut.
          And so sometimes authors might encounter the same – if they get too much feedback it could cramp

          what they have flowing or could just distract. But either way – let me know when/if you want some fresh eyes to skim it.

          and Lindsey had a concert in our area (a little while ago) but we found out about it too late – or I would have went and gotten a photo just fro Mabel πŸ™‚

        2. It sounds like your husband is very dedicated to his craft, and knows when to draw the line when it comes to taking feedback too personally. That’s one of the challenges you face when you ask for feedback.

          Thank you so much for your time, Y. I remember we had such an insightful time with Lady. I’ve actually been keeping you in mind as an editor for my book… Time is not right as yet. But the time will come 😊

          That is so kind of you to have wanted to see Lindsey. She tours a fair bit, so many she will come your way again ❀

    1. Thanks for the comment Ju -Lyn
      And I think it is such a good idea for places to use murals to bring attention to the their business while also giving us art!
