Today's photo is from the bottom of a telephone pole in my neighborhood. There are others, all at ground level, sometimes accompanied by a smaller block of painted wood with a mushroom or other troll-esque accoutrements. (Like what? Well, I dunno. Shovels, picks, whatever trolls use in their folklore doings on a daily basis.)
The artist is unknown and there's never a sign or initial or anything to indicate who is adding these little squares of wonder to our otherwise urban landscape. I like them. A neighbor described them as "slightly evil" but I tend to disagree. I mean, someone is going to the trouble to sort of, well, vandalize the neighborhood in a unique and artsty way. I can appreciate that kind of civil disobedience.
Thank you, mysterious stranger.
