The fairy tale botanicals twist and climb atop the fence encircling the community garden and gathering spot, and made me imagine the kinds of objects The Tin Man from "The Wizard of Oz" might be inclined to make.
Who ever is responsible for this work of street art took great pains in cutting tin cans of all shapes and sizes, fashioning them into flowers, and embellishing them with wires and paint. Even old plastic detergent and vegetable oil bottles transform into funny faces and fantastic spokes on magical wheels, and container lids become colorful pendants, hung at interesting intervals through out this trash heap turned fence garden.
I was so taken with this sculptural fantasy that I'd like to share some of the photos I captured.
Doesn't this just make your imagination wander?
