Things in Unusual Places #24: Cactus

Cactus sculpture in Bristol

Even on a dull, drizzly winter's day, this cactus brightens up this street scene in Bristol. It's made out of scaffolding covers and plastic tags and was constructed in November last year by artist Duncan McKellar.

It replaced a large pineapple on the site. I see a theme developing here...

... see that tiny shot of pink? Want a closer look?

    1. Whenever I look at this photo I imagine the cactus is just about to dance!
