Okay , so a lot of people asked me questions about this so I am going to write an article about it and answer all of them in one post :
In suffering from the earthquake in Japan, here was a very interesting tradition called Okurie. This tradition, to be more precise, is an art project. It concerns those houses that are being demolished, people decorate them with graffiti and murals that at least for a short time will give them a nice festive look.And one of these actions was organized by the artist Yosuke Tan. He invited to participate in this action everyone who could come , so that all could participate in the process of painting the college building, where he once studied himself.
It took 27 liters of paint, people painted the old building with their hands, which eventually developed into an amazing picture . The building is transformed, becomes festive, and has an elegant appearance, but at the same time, it’s a bit sad, because the flowers are brought not just for the holidays, but also for the funeral …
And that is how several hundred cherry blossoms appeared on the windows, doors and walls of the building.
There is a tiny bit in Brazil at night and also the odd one in Singapore or Hong Kong I think but I’ve never posted any of these. That’s all I’ve ever seen. There are a lot of places where the sun has started to set, which is always beautiful to find because most of street view is just done in the day. The light always seems looks prettiest when the sun is rising or setting so it’s nice to stumble across.
