Monday Murals

Good Health

On the side of a health food store....this mural expands the length of it. Can't get the whole thing in the camera frame and those pesky cars from the bank keep parking in front of it....in the designated parking spots. Can you imagine?



Linking with Oakland Daily Photo for Mural Monday.  All are welcome.  If you enjoy murals, graffiti, street art, etc. you might decide to join in as well.

Amazingly colorful! And I'm with you - those pesky cars - what right do they have to ruin a perfectly good shot? Geez!

I kinda like the car nosing into your first shot -- it gives a perspective on size and a nice contrast. Fun murals!

Anita Johnson said...

I like the cars too, it does put the size into perspective. Such beautiful color!

I love murals and your shots here are fantastic! Whoever invented parking spots in front of murals definitely doesn't take pictures himself... ;-) But I must say the car doesn't disturb me in the first photo!

Great shots! I had the same problem last week when we went to shoot the murals in Florida. People parked their cars there, just like it didn't matter! I truly think they have become so accustomed to the murals that they don't even notice them any longer. But, it was annoying to try to get the shots without them. And in one of them, I had to shoot around a guy on the phone who wouldn't move, and on another, a guy painting a no parking sign on the pavement. Oh well, we do the best we can. You did a great job!

I have to say, I walk past that every day on my way to work and it looks better in your photos than it does in person. Those strange birds always make me laugh. Have you seen the one by the same artist on the wall by the brewpub? Maybe a subject for a future post!

This sort of artwork always amazes me.
So nice!

If only you could have the car towed! ;-)

These are so bright and vibrant! Maybe give the cars a photographers ticket, just as a scare!

Oops, my comment ended up on your Flickr page. My bad. I'm so glad you persisted through all those Blogger issues to post your mural finds on Monday Mural. The hunt for murals is addictive.
