Constructive dissemination of deconstruction?
Post modern or modern conceptualism of the past?
Ironic statement or iconoclasm of urban living?
Lengthen the vowels and shake the hands in the air,
for “Is it ART?”, discussion has begun.

Taken outside the Old Bell in Harrogate, on a street well known for it’s art and antique shops, just had to ask then to leave this picture frame where the delivery people had lent it while I grabbed the camera.

Converted into black and white and best viewed large.

Shot on an Olympus E30.

    Now I know you have been watching too many art programmes on BBC 4! Well observed and stunning capture!

  • Shush don’t tell the BBC, but got a commercial plug in there too… work van in the back ground lol.. almost as bad as the Andrew Marr show this morning, showing Cafe Rouge in almost every shot.. guess the director has his Sunday lunch in there and at their prices wants a few freebies ;)

  • Had me looking for the coffee mug with it’s name on it on his does this mean a reduction on the license fee you think?
