Who’s the real monster?

Monsters cannot be announced. One cannot say: “Here are our monsters,” without immediately turning the monsters into pets.

    Great collection! I call monsters on the last mural. When they’re that big, they’re monsters!

    1. Hehe. Okay, Joey. This reminds me of my favourite fish canteen on Slovenian coast and their menu in Italian which claims they offer ‘piovra’ instead of ‘polpo’ for octopus, and amore cracks up every time and says piovra is something out of the Jules Verne book.

    1. Thanks, Awa. Eyes should have reflectors. 😀 I was there as it was getting dark, but I don’t think it there was any special effects showing.

    I wish all our monsters were just painted on walls ….

    1. Thanks, Lex. The sea dwellers are a recent addition, I believe, the rest I already saw on my previous visits. There is a very cool street art free tour of Ljubljana and I took it. 🙂

    Amazing! I love it when graffiti is thoughtful/insightful, it makes such a change from the usual scribbles 🙂

    1. Thank you, Fay Faraway. 🙂 (I’m gonna call you this now.) If you’re ever in Ljubljana, take the free 2-hour Graffiti Tour. You see and learn plenty.

    A fantastic selection in more ways than one. I’m drawn to the sea-themed house too – especially the octopus. I’ve heard that they are very intelligent creatures.

    These murals take street art to a whole new level!! I like the last one best, but I’d rather not encounter any of these on my next swim!!
    However it’s the 4th photo with the statue that gave me the most amusement because of the red butt in the bottom right. We’ve just been mooned!
