Saturday Snaps

I took this snap a while back when we had been for a walk around some of the greener parts of south London. After our walk we were heading catch a bus which stops on the road I live on. As we were walking I saw some street art.

The mural is called “It’s Oh So Quiet” and it shows a male and a female house sparrow.

At first I only noticed the birds, but then I noticed that as well as perching on barbed wire, the bird on the left has a plastic straw in it’s mouth. So I wondered if the artist – Louis Masai – was highlighting the plight of nature around us in the city?

So I found a blogger who had a post all about this particular mural, and if you are interested in reading more about it’s creation and the artist behind it, check out their post below:
