Now that's some real urban art.
Ginnie Hart: He's the leader of the pack, Hollie!

Loved it when Chris pointed it out to me...love it when you show it to me again, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: I have a feeling Lisl and Chris are very proud of this one, Ray! I sure would be.
Oh how I L-O-V_E this!!!
Ginnie Hart: It's fun, Robin, isn't it. He's the leader of the pack! smile
How good is that! Well captured, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Many kind thanks, Frank. I understand Bristol is where Banksy was born!
Love your presentation, Ginnie! I've seen this before (on the web) - and think it's just fab!
Ginnie Hart: When we came upon it at the end of our walk with Lisl and Chris, they very nonchalantly said something like "Oh, and that's a real Banksy." I think they were on pins and needles waiting for that moment to show us. smile

If you cannot take a joke.
A classic. Love it and love it with the lady passing by... it might give her an idea wink
Wonderful selective colouring.
Ginnie Hart: HA! It might give her an idea, indeed, or make her gulp out of fright. smile Bedankt, MLMA.

Oh, I saw this painting only from the bus - but I know it and I love it telling a whole story! Well captured with the passing lady!
Ginnie Hart: I was delighted to find out Banksy was born in Bristol, Philine, so seeing this totally made my day! I'm glad you got to see it, too.
Why doesn't he use both hands 😀?
Ginnie Hart: Good question, Reinhold. grin

The passing pedestrian makes this image perfect Ginnie. It is a wonderful comment on human life - as was, as is, as will forever be..
Ginnie Hart: I'll never forget how we just "came upon this" with you and Lisl that day, Chris. You both were so nonchalant about it. HA! I loved finding out later that Banksy was born in Bristol.

The blue and yellow patches were not intended by Banksy, but they are fitting.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Philine, I read about that. And I agree that they're fitting. smile

It's crazy, Ginnie! Great shot!!
Ginnie Hart: It makes you look...and think...twice, HF. smile
nice capture and i think it featured on SC previously too (or somewhere). i think this passerby adds to the image. if only there is an image somewhere of YOU taking a photo of the woman looking at this!
Ginnie Hart: HA! That would be a good one, Ayush...of multiple lookers looking!

Hahahah... love it. I like the passing lady looking.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Alan. She did seem to add to the plot. grin
I have seen this too Ginnie. The passer by looks as if she hasn't!
Ginnie Hart: I'm quite sure the regulars never look any more, Bill!

A classic Ginnie, thank you for showing it.
Ginnie Hart: You're welcome, Chad. You English can be very proud of your natives. smile
Reminds me of when I hung of a ledge. Oh wait, that was Peter Parker.
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA. Make sure you don't give yourself away, Michael. smile

The passer by makes all the difference - great Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: That makes me happy, Mike. Thanks.

It is a very funny graffiti. The passer-by had to smile as much as me by looking at this artistic scene full of humor
Ginnie Hart: If we can't laugh, Marie, we're miserable. smile

cela ressemble à un Banksy !
JP
Ginnie Hart: It is, indeed, JP. In fact, this is the city (Bristol) where Banksy was born.
Oh, the blur and yellow splashes are new!
The well-hung lover's wife tried to kill them all with a paintball gun.
Ginnie Hart: Graffiti added to the graffiti, LC...somewhat appropriately, I think? smile

Je n'avais pas lu ta remarque
JP
Ginnie Hart: Yup. But it is indeed a Banksy. smile
I love your take on it with the decoloured passerby.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Mary. It somehow seemed appropriate. smile

I've seen this it's amazing, Bristol is a wonderful place.
Ginnie Hart: It's a great city, Tracy, indeed. I'll never forget it.

I see someone took some shots at it, with a paint-ball gun. Must be some sour-puss that got caught.
Ginnie Hart: It kinda adds to the drama, Louis, doesn't it! smile
Brilliant with the passer-by, Ginnie! smile
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, Martin.
Quite a picture...
Ginnie Hart: It does make you stop and pay attention, Larry. smile
hahaha nice one Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Ronky. Gotta love that Banksy. smile
Wonder if he had his oats before he hung out.
Ginnie Hart: Only you would think of that, Mick. I have a feeling we'll never know. grin
At the right place at the right time! Great timing Ginnie. I love it.
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, Richard. I was a happy camper. smile
It is indeed a very well done and clever wall painting, and the girl looks to be quite interested in it as it seems you were also.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Brian. I was across the street when I took this, but later crossed the street and took the Banksy without anything to obstruct it in the foreground. I ended up liking this "obstructed" view better. smile
Excellent, Ginnie. You've made me laugh when I'm in a glum mood!
Ginnie Hart: Well, then. Good, Pauline. Thanks.
This guy is tops, I love to see his work.
Ginnie Hart: I know what you mean, Martin!
I've seen this street art before Ginnie... but i love what you did with the foreground... it's a pity that people shoot paint balls at a piece of art....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Yes, it's a shame, Peter, but it does seem to add some drama in this particular case, right? smile
That is funny.
Ginnie Hart: Banksy loves his sense of humor, for sure, Michael!
loved this one smile
Ginnie Hart: Me, too, Joshi. Thanks.
Great title Ginnie, image made me chuckle this morning smile smile brilliant.
Ginnie Hart: Gotta pay attention to these things, Scotia, right?! smile Thanks.
Wonderful!
Ginnie Hart: It really is, Tom. Thanks.
Fantastic image, fantastic ideasmile Greetings
Ginnie Hart: Many kind thanks, Zielona.

Gives art appreciation a whole new meaning.

...and hope you and Astrid are in good form.
Ginnie Hart: It's hard to beat Banksy, George, isn't it! smile

And yes, Astrid and I are doing great (even with a knee replacement coming up for me in January, after our annual trip to America in October).

oh my gosh hahahahaha, that made me laugh with your title!!! great shot, i would make a print and make it well hung in your living room lolol
Ginnie Hart: The "Well-Hung Lover" title is acually Banksy's title for this graffiti, Elaine, but I would have loved to have come up with it myself. HA! It was such a delight to see it with my own eyes.
