Literary Heritage

This week the photo challenge from the Daily Post is Heritage.

There has been an increase in the popularity of street art in recent years. Not the art of pavement artists, whose work in chalk is washed away by heavy rain, but more permanent art on the walls of buildings.

I have made a few attempts at snapping a scene from Gulliver’s Travels. Shadows cast by neighbouring buildings usually prevent the painting from being seen at its best. However my photo taken in March this year is more evenly lit. The connection between the book and the site of this illustration is that the author, Jonathan Swift, lived in Whitehaven as a young child.
