Layers of past and present

This bulletin board hangs on a wall on a street downtown. I love the collage that was unintentionally created here. There are advertisements, some old, some new, for a ballet school for little girls, jazz ballet, schoolbooks, and a vocational school to become a waiter/waitress, locksmith, carpenter, and other trades.

Very interesting photo...evidently no one is in charge of keeping this up to date...but it sure is colorful!

This is great. As if life, fate, circumstances, whatever you call it, was the artist.

I love seeing the cyrillic script in your posts...I can still read it & that makes me happy. I haven't heard the word 'udjbenici' in a very long time. This is really excellent find.

'udjbenici' - Now I'm curious! What does that mean? :)

I featured a community board on my blog, which is unpdated, but this has more artistic value. It's the glimpses of the past. You want to peel back those layers to reveal.

oh great... these are common things which we used to see in everyday life.. but when someone mentions it specially, that becomes something great.. a change in the perception rather than being a clutter of billboards

What a great looking bulletin board. The mix of colours and texture makes it so interesting. I just noticed that your banner picture looks like float cabins. Can you tell me more about it? - Margy
