I could. Probably will when it starts getting warmer at night, like during the summer.

I went out to see the lunar eclipse..... It was completely overcast.

I went out to see the Lyrid meteor shower...  It was mostly overcast,
and combined with light pollution from the city, it made viewing pointless.

Dang that sucks. I couldn't see the meteor shower, too many lights.

A decade or so ago, back in my city, the bus stops used to be like this:




Then, a project with support from the city's pro culture (arts in general) office invited artists  from the city to paint those bus stops. They would either paint their own art or their interpretation from someone's else. I always thought about walking around the city to photo shoot those, but I never did. I think I always took it for granted. Now, we went from this (thse are from an specific artist who used to post his work on FB):




to this








Fucking new mayor.









EDIT: when I mean interpretation, I mean this:









Juiz de Fora, my city, is a dull, sad and dead city, with few things that gives life to it. It is sad what they have done.



EDIT 2:

These are one of the few arts. Thee may more, but those I know by heart where they were located:
