2018 IN PICTURES – APRIL

April 2018 began for me with a trip to Smithfield, to snap a new mural commemorating Smithfield Market.

Two days later, on Easter Tuesday, it was a trip to Lurgan for me to see Linfield take on Glenavon.

It was a month dominated by football, as I went to Linfield’s matches against Ballymena, Crusaders, Coleraine and Cliftonville.

The month ended as it started, with me checking out some Street Art, well, mostly the now finished garden at CS Lewis Square which featured a tribute to famous East Belfast people and landmarks.

SMITHFIELD

A new mural to add to Belfast’s wallspace. It’s actually been up for a few weeks, but i’ve only got a chance to phorograph it now.

It is in Smithfield, near to Smithfield Market, but still a bit of a walk away from it. It depicts old life in Smithfield Market.

It is a collaboration between Kev Largey and Jonny McKerr, whose work has previously featured on this blog.

The reason why i only got round to photographing it now was because there were cars always parked in front of it when I went to get photos. A pain in the arse for anyone who likes to photograph Street Art.

There’s not a lot of people around on Sunday mornings, so I made the most of it.

If you’re looking for an exact address, it is on Gresham Street, beside a pub that was known as The Hudson but is now known as Peaky Blinders. Apparantly, it’s a popular TV show.

I’ll let you in on a secret, pubs in Belfast or popular TV shows aren’t a specialist subject of mine.

If that address sounds familiar, that’s because it was previously home to a mural of David Bowie, which was painted a few weeks after he died in January 2016.

That mural of Bowie is now gone.
