New Neighbors

Who's under there? This is going it a bit in my neighborhood, one which is designated "mixed" for its combination of single family homes and undistinguished box apartments thrown up in the 60s, like the one I live in.

I'm going for lions. Epic. Hey, it works in Trafalgar Square.

Titus, especially for the pigeons.

Clowncar, Heh.

I love such lions! There was one in the street around the corner when I was a kid, and every day I passed it, I adressed it: "Good morning, happy lion!" This referred to a childrens' book I owned, "The Happy Lion". Later I learnt that such lions were put on the graves of noblemen in ancient China. May they bring good luck to your neigborhood!

Makes me think a little bit of GHostbusters. :)

I'm with Titus - gotta be epic stone lions. But dragons would be appropriate...

Emma J said...

Or giant frogs. Nobel, amphibious frogs -- which would be more fitting for mixed housing?

ArtSparker said...

Eva, I have good memories of sitting on a stone lion while my best friend did the same when we were young.

Emma, I like it - I little bit of H.P. Lovecraft in that, perhaps.
