Found Art Friday 68

Dear folk of the Department of Homeland Inspiration,
Today's Found Art begins with an observer in the bay area who sent "little bits of wonder" #1
It's great to have your backpacking trip without even leaving the parking garage. 
And speaking of garages. An artist in Melbourne, Australia is creating 3D paint garage enhancement.

Then, low and behold (where did that expression come from?) These two images appeared on the same day
in order to have an unplanned dialog

(also from friend in the bay area: "little bits of wonder"#2)

Different types of scarecrows anonymously working
snapped out the window by request of the Art Ranger while driving around the mud puddle loving teenage wannabe driver

From Sonya Devine watching an Art installation:

And what is it that makes a photograph be designated as "Art"?  Consider seeking out some photographs displayed as such to determine what you think. Titles can be great doorways.

If you are interested in contributing your own "bits of wonder" to The Department of Homeland Inspiration, we recommend multiple shots/angles/or types of light - of anything that interests you and choosing the best one. Of course many things already vanish too fast, and that is often just the moment we are looking for.  The next bird on a line, curious fungus, poignant discard, or surprising cloud formation?  Enjoy your week and send images to
