Here in Otavalo, on only a couple of streets, they have really surpassed using lampposts as an art form. I photographed these two years ago and never forgot them. This time, I photographed them again, hopefully ‘in a better light’. Only two designs have been added over the last two years; they are the mask and a large red flame with gold cross on top.
Strangely, these two designs are on one street, a different street from the rest. I did not photograph the flame, because I did not appreciate its simplistic design.Regrettably, all of the mask lampposts were in areas obstructed by telephone wires, making it difficult to get a clear shot.
Regardless, the artist(s) should be celebrated if only here.
