Holyrood Part 5

Guess what.
I found some more mosaics on the Holyrood Estate.
Part 4 can be seen here and Part 3 can be seen here if you missed some of the others.
Three of the lastest finds are all wildlife to be found in the area.
 Daisies and daffodils, beans and blackberries and a huge sunflower are just a few things they have depicted.




The fourth features a family sat in an air raid shelter. The photos to the right of this work show parts of our bomb damaged City. I plan to do a post sometime in the future showing each photo and how that area looks now and hopefully I will be able to find some photos online of how it looked before the bombs fell.

I like these wildlife mosaics but I think they're all wonderful depicting various aspects of the local area. I shall look forward to your future post.

Lisa, I really enjoy the mosaics, and the bomb shelter one is very interesting. I can remember a time when friends wanted to build one back in the 70s. I mailed our Christmas exchange yesterday, so be on the lookout.
