Fountainpark Mural

Recently I spotted a group of pretty talented young local schoolkids from the Gorgie-Dalry-Fountainbridge area working on a long mural by the steps leading down to the Telfer Subway next to the Fountainpark centre. I’d have liked to take pics as they were working on them but sadly these days taking any pic with youngsters in them seems to get you red-lighted as someone more evil than Hitler so I thought I’d avoid any problem and just wait till they finished (shame, would have been nice to document it when it was a work in progress too, but not worth the potential hassle these days). So been waiting for a decent day off when the sun was in the right position as I was passing so I could grab some pics – well done the kids and their art teacher, it’s a lovely, colourful visual treat for the area:

Love the snail!

And there’s something almost Alasdair Gray about this one
