Aside from the fact that I thought it was a great photo, it reminded me that when I was in Portland I saw a series of horses attached to poles too
I thought I was back in Montana for a second
But I kept stumbling upon these horses
Tied to bike poles in several places
It cracked me up
whenever I saw them
It was fun to keep seeking them out all over Portland whilst there.
Poor little things, I just had to stand them up
I recall Susanna Gordon, an amazing photographer, made these gorgeous wings and placed them and sent them to people to put in random places.
She explains it here
There was a man called the eternity man in Sydney many a year ago who wrote the word “Eternity” in chalk on the streets of Sydney.
The word and its font have become an iconic part of Sydney’s history and the eclectic mix of people who live within it.
Arthur Stace was a reformed metho-drinker (methylated spirits) and a petty criminal who haunted Sydney’s bars and brothels. One night Arthur, in a soup kitchen chapel, had a revelation that sent him on a 37 year odyssey.
Every night, in perfect copperplate script, he chalked his timeless message on Sydney's streets. His unchanging graffiti was the word Eternity.
He wrote it approximately half a million times on Sydney pavements during the 1950s and '60s.
A movie and an opera called “The Eternity Man” was made recently – it tells of the history behind the man.
A few years ago the harbour bridge was lit up on New Years Eve with the Arthur Stace icon Eternity – the word stays lit every night for a month whilst the festival of Sydney is on.
