finally more creations of mine after I moved into my new apartment with its nice big basement room – this time it's a completed section of a snotted street and the wall between it and the lakeshore:
...wih my well-known houses in the back.
Note that "officially", the walls would be solid without the big openings. But I need them so I can reach the trains that will be parked on the hidden tracks behind the wall.
Close-up with tram tracks:
"Officially", the tram line is to be imagined to enter from the right, turn right into the narrow street, take a loop around the block and re-enter from the left, then exit to the right. However, since I'll try to make a motorized tram, I want it to drive just the loop around the buildings – hence this curve.
I forgot to print the bike sign on the road and the parking ticket machine for the other photos, so here they are only on this one:
I actually tried to make a mosaic with bricks (tiles, cheese slopes) for the bike sign, but didn't manage to build one at that size that also looks good, so here's a printed sticker only...
Close-ups of wall and shore – I'm wondering if I made it a bit too old-looking...
There are some statues: Freddie Mercury, an exotic queen and a mirror-like droid:
Also a piper whose music isn't loved by everyone, and a strange procession:
Now what are these guys doing there? That's what the reporter's asking, too, so let's listen in:
"So who are you guys?"
"We're the local FOOLOO cult – that's Followers Of One Long Orange Object."
"I see. And why are you worshipping this... thing?"
"Well, erm, it's long, it's orange..." – worshippers murmur "ooooraaaaange" – "...and it comes from the God of Separation. We worship him this way in order to ask him to separate what we want to be separated, and to keep together what we want to remain together. Do you want to join?"
"Erm, no, thanks..."
And a look at the entire room:
On Flickr, there are more photos, including the backside of the wall, the underside of the road, and from setting up the tables.
Comments, suggestions, ...? :)
