This week Amy is taking us on a walk – a photo walk. What a brilliant idea!
In order to distract myself and lift my spirits, we decided to go to Borås last Friday – a lovely little town we hadn’t visited for years.
The whole day I had been on the lookout for the Swan and the Fox, but it seemed nowhere to be found. I had found it on the Internet plan and was eager to see it with my own eyes too. In fact, after two hours I had given up on it by the time we were approaching the end of the walk. But, on turning right into the last street before the car park, I caught a glimpse of it in the corner of my left eye – there it was! Sitting on our left hand side, it obviously was impossible to find on our way out. So, now you too can see it, in the header. It was my favorite on this Friday walk.
As always, thank you all for your creative responses to last week’s Symmetry challenge. We enjoyed your interesting and thoughtful images for the concept. I am sorry to be a bit absent from commenting – I lost my mother in September and my mind is focused on everything connected to that. But I will be back. I am sure Patti, Tina and Amy will support you even more.
Now we look forward to seeing your results from this week’s Photo Walk. Please remember to link them to Amy’s original post here, and to Tag them Lens-Artists to be included in our reader section. Last but not least, we hope you’ll join us next week when our special guest host, Biasini, Anne Leueen’s clever horse, hosts our next challenge on her always-interesting blog Horse Addict.
Until then, stay safe and creative.

What fantastic murals, Ann-Christine! Artwork on a spectacular scale. On a more serious note, I was so sorry to read of the sad loss of your mother. My most sincere condolences to you and your family.
Thank you so much, Sue. I just had to get away from all the sorrow for a day. ♥
Wonderful street art, AC. I’m glad you had a chance to go there and have a nice break. Thinking of you and sending hugs❤️
♥ Thank you, Patti. The funeral went very well, and hopefully we can heal slowly now.
Yes, AC. It does take time. Take care of yourself, too.
Sorry to hear about your mother Ann-Christine. The murals are amazing.
What a marvelous walk! In my city every year they hold a mural painting festival and go through different neighborhoods.
I think that is a great idea. I live in too small a village to have a festival in – but here it was lovely. How great you have festival every year!
I enjoyed seeing such great murals, Ann-Christine, especially the swan and the fox. What a lovely town; wonderful to know it provided a little bit of enjoyment for you.
Thank you, Sylvia. Yes, I needed to get away from everything for a day.
Leya, this “mural walk” was very cool.
Thank you – glad you liked it!
What a unique collection of photo walk images. So colorful too. Yes, walks can provide a needed – and comforting – distraction. I am glad you found some solace during this one. Take care.
Thank you so muh for thinking of me – take care you too.
You’re most welcome 🙂
hi a.c., interesting street art pictures I like the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 6th and 8th particularly well.
many greetings robert
So glad you enjoyed them, Robert! Thank you.
The artwork is beautiful!
Thank you, Nora
I would have loved to see those! I especially liked the first one.
Mmm, my favorite too.
Are the graffitti on the mural permanent or just for the festival? Such great art. Thank you for sharing your great day at Borås, Ann-Christine!
They will stay there permanently, yes. There are incredibly many in this town – a festival every year.
They’re very artistic. It must be a popular festival.
Yes, the whole town is filled with murals from many years’ of festivals.
A nice place to visit.
I’m so sorry for the loss of your mother. May her memory be a blessing. I love building murals and these are beautiful and wonderfully captured. We have the Wide Open Walls yearly festival in Sacramento. It just amazes me how artists can paint such beautiful scenes in such a large format. Take care!
Thank you, Anne. And I have the same thoughts – how is it possible to get the scale right in a format you cannot see when you paint? Back off half a kilometer to see it properly…
What a delightful walk – wonderful photos!
Thank you – so glad you liked it!
All these murals are so beautiful!
Thank you – I enjoyed them very much.
I love street art, and you’ve shown us some beautiful work here. Thank you
Thank you, Su. It was a relaxing day out.
The Swan & Fox does deserve to me in the header image, although the rest do give it a run for the money.
Thank you for a lively comment!
A very different post from you today, but every bit a interesting as usual I particularly love that last image.
Thank you, Margaret. The colours are slowly arriving here now.
Slowly at first …. but beginning to gallop.
Yup. Autumn really showed its face this week.
Hard to find something to lift the spirits at a time like this, Ann Christine. You always give such good support to everyone else, and your presence here today is much appreciated. 🙂 🙂 The swan and fox is a fabulous image and I love the one on the school too. Sometimes the blog is a welcome distraction. Sometimes it’s not. You choose! Sending hugs 🙂
Hugs back to you, Jo! ♥
Oh that header street art image was detailed and brilliant – I can see why it was a fav

Beautiful murals! Love the leaves too.
Thank you, John. The colours are coming here now.
Oh I did so love these Ann-Christine. A perfect idea for a much needed bright spot for you. The swan and fox is amazing but they are really all wonderful. I also loved your final image as fall kissed your windshield – what a love end to the day.
Thank you, Tina – it was a great day indeed.
What fabulous street art Ann-Christine 🙂 thanks for sharing
Glad you enjoyed them, Brian
These graffitti and murals are colorful, uplifting, and inspiring. All are so beautifully captured.
