It's been very busy around here lately and I haven't had much time for writing posts or comments
but I have been visiting you all and keeping up with your comings and goings.
I'll try to visit and leave a comment soon
We all lead busy lives don't we?
One of the things we've been doing is traveling down to the Gold Coast to Sally's place where we are trying to finish off her renovation.
It's about 70k mainly along a very good, 5 lane highway.
The speed limit along most of the way is 110kph
When the highway passes through an area with houses, high walls have been built along the edge of the road to minimize the noise problem.
Sometimes they are made of wood and steel........
and sometimes of concrete- plain
or marked with decorative patterns........
and occasionally these panels have been made into murals.
You can see the whole decorating process
starting off with the background ....
then the detail is added.
We came upon this huge one of tree dwelling Australian Native animals.
See how clever this bit is? The real trees growing behind the wall complete the picture.
and native flora too.
Further along there's a jungle scene
with palm trees growing behind it.
Another scene depicted sugarcane growing.
( car speeding past pretty fast here !! )
I really like them.
They're clever and interesting and, for me, change what could be an eyesore
into a work of art.
So, which do you prefer ?
or this ?
