Since I talked about high art in one of the Paris posts, I thought I would share some of my snapshots of street art from our travels. This sparked a breakfast table conversation between Julia and I about what exactly should be considered street art. Is any doodle on the street a candidate for this label, or does it have to be an intricate graffiti mural? My pics are more of the former kind, so I use the term “street art” here loosely. What do you think constitutes street art?

Literal street art in Vernon, France (near Giverny)

Hello Kitty (or should I say Hola Kitty?) in Lagos, Portugal

Whether street art or no, these scribbles made me smile:-)
