Photographer's Note

Just as the title 'Geisha with a Local Touch'.
Back to the Blind Walls Gallery in Breda. There are everwhere in the city.

Since easing of lockdown restrictions, life has become a bit 'normal'.
Yeah, what's normal ?
Well, at least the streets come back to life :-)

OK , the main picture.
This Geisha mural named 'Kokesh' on the wall is painted by Fin Dac, in 2015.
I never knew that these colours red and white are referring to our city of Breda.
A beautiful small square b/g , outdoor terrace to enjoy the liveliness of the square itself.

As the WS1.
Is called 'Brave as a Lion' by Zenk One, in 2016.
In-short, this mural is a tribute to Godevaert Montens, mayor of Breda during the Dutch War of Independence.
The mayor is known for his supposed heroic actions in 1581.
I've read an article about the owner of this house's wall. He said that he is so proud of it.

Lastly, the WS2.
In the picture f/g, 'The Nightlife of Breda' by Anti-Held, in 2015.
As you can see, there are three more murals further in this narrow alley.
All of them, are supposed to reflect on the nightlife and the water of the harbour b/g.

Sometimes I wonder ... are they 'Art' or 'Graffiti' ? Maybe, both :-)

Thanks for your time.
