Tagging snails ...

... the fancy way. Inner City Snail is a slow-moving street art project by Slinkachu. Check out some of his other work at Little People, where he left little hand-painted people to fend for themselves in the streets of London.

I found myself quite concerned for the welfare of the little people. Has it given you some ideas for photos?

Yes, the "left to fend for themselves" bit sounds a little mean. But as with a lot of artwork, the temporary nature of it and the questions it promotes are part of what makes them art.

As for photos, he does a pretty good job, I would love one or two of tham as posters.
