A destructive recipe of freezing temps, road salt, and traffic…the early stage of a pothole, the asphalt crackles and crumbles. All too common sight in Minnesota in the Spring

    Great composition of such an ordinary object. It makes a creative Urban Abstract with it’s shapes and textures. Congratulations, it has been featured in the Abstract Macro Urban Art Group

  • Thank you, unfortunately this is an all too common Spring time sight in Minneapolis, I saw it a statement on more than one level, glad you did too! It’s an honor to be featured!

    Ooooo, I’ve seen a lot of that!! 15 years in Bloomington… now 22 in Boston where we have our own Yankee version of these!! LOL! Love it, shutterbug1020! Susana

  • Thanks Susana, I’ve driven the streets of Boston once years ago, still remember the experience well! As you know, the Minnesota has moved into the season after Winter, you know, Road Constuction! LOL! How’s the streets of Boston these days?

    Streets in Boston? Some great, some a total wreck!! The early spring this year has given the road crews a break and they seem to be ahead of the game for once! But, I drove past Fenway a couple days ago and… total chaos!! with construction across the street, cranes everywhere and in the middle a pothole crew moseyin’ along drinkin’ coffee, high-five’n fans trying to find parking! Typical! You know you have a great hidden image in this piece? A face with a red eye… kind of a surly guy… the grouchy soul of potholes everywhere… getting ready to blow up! Think about putting into Accidental Images group. Just what we’re looking for! (sorry, I see faces in everything… it’s an addiction! ;-)

    LOVE the fact that something as crazy simple and common as a “pothole” can be turned into art here on RedBubble! This is great!!!! Someone once told me, there are 2 seasons in Minnesota…Winter and road repair!! I don’t miss those bumps!

  • Thanks Sarah, The whole two seasons theory is true, only now they’ve extended the road repair season to carry over into Winter driving, double the fun!!!
