Yes, another addition to my painted Electrical Substation series.
These city gray rectangular lumps have been transformed by artists employed by Gemeente Den Haag (The Hague City Council).
I’m delighted to keep finding new ones and to promote them a little further than the neighbourhoods they stand in.
After all, if they brighten up my day, then maybe they will brighten up yours too.
This one stands on the intersection of the Thomsonlaan and Valkenboskade (on the side closest to Goudenregenstraat).
The city council never removes ivy or plants already growing on the side of these, so this substation has one of the larger sides covered and part of one of the small sides too. Just like the artists, I will have to work around that.
My job was made harder by the fact that there is a parking area in the middle of the street and every time I’ve tried to photograph it, there have been cars parked up very close to the substation. I did my best.
