decadencia y fin (1)

So far (almost end of July 2019 already!!), I have showed you only hints of the 2018 campaign: the three posts between December and February about my brief visit to Dublin.

¡Más vale tarde que nunca!:

In the 2018 trip I crudely faced the seemingly inevitable fate of street art: decadence, decay, disappearance into oblivion…

In this blog I already showed you my favourite group of Reykjavík’s murals (see also this newer, more complete photo collection from my Smugmug Craft Humanitas’ archives). And I have also my openly declared single preferred one. But I never mentioned there was another individual piece that was my secretly single most preferred one, the one I felt secretly affectionate about. I saw it only once, back in 2016, and took a single photo of it, with my old iPhone 6s:

I took this one and only photo of the glorious ‘ape with trident’ mural on the 30th of September of 2016

Then, in 2017, for some reason, I missed my little love of ‘ape with trident’, so I was particularly focused on really find it again in my 2018 trip. I carefully determined its position on the map beforehand and, upon my arrival in the city, I could nor wait to get out in search of it!!

But…

This is what I found instead:
