No 1) Goldfish!
The other day in Shimizu Ku, Shizuoka City, just as I was about to cross the bridge over the Tomoe Riverjoining S-Pulse Street and Jirouchou Street I noticed a long low wall on my left covered with paintings apparently left there by illustrious unknown amateurs!
The paintings are the works of students from art departments of Shimizu Minami High School Shimizu Higashi High School, Shimizu Kokusai High School, Tokai Dai Ichi High School and Shizuoka Seibi High School.
All paintings were on the 24th of July 1998!
As they are starting to fade away as well as being interfered with by local fishermen I decided to take all of them for posterity!
As there are no less than 183 of them I will introduce them in a few installments!
