Peeking over the fence

I love to scrounge through flea markets and thrift shops, and I also am a bit of a Peeping Tom (Tomasina). You won't find me leering through your window at night or armed with binoculars from my terrace, but if something is nearly within view over a fence, for me it's fare game!

Such was the case for this serendipitous find on an old street downtown.

But where's the artist...?

Just like me. If I see something and have the camera with me expect me to take a few photos. Nice find here.

Ditto here—and the camera is always w/me. I'd like the basketball net and its backdrop for my daughters' friend Ivana, please. Actually, this is a very eclectic collection of stuff. Well captured, Bibi.

I think I'd like this artist. Maybe they should paint on the patchy walls.

Love thrift stores and fleamarkets. Nice to Know they are world wide.

Great capture.

Probably scavenging for more...
A collector's warehouse? I especially like the baskettball hoop with the painting underneath and would love to have a better look at the art piece on the second door...

Kcalpesh, not sure whose place this is, but the photo was taken in an artists' section of town, so it may be someone well-known here....or not!

I love it. It makes me think of "art brut" - raw vision.

How intriguing. Actually whilst there's a lot of 'stuff' it's all fairly tidily piled up. Like you, I can't resist peering thru windows and doorways and odd entrances. All part of the fun.

Wonderful picture. I like this creative mess. It makes me think of the thrift shops here in San Telmo.
