We passed this top mural one day last month...I have had it scaled down since the day I took it, but have not gotten around to posting it. It was a drive-by shot...could have been better but not to bad from a moving vehicle.
These were taken years ago in a little town about 20 miles north of here. Icannot remember if I have ever published them...I know I had it planned for July 4th and think I forgot them. But I may have published them later.
I totally love both the top mural and this flag...just something about someone that can do something on this scale. Actually, that they can do them on any scale. I don't have a lick of talent when it comes to husband does and so do the girls. Not me.

I even find myself loving a lot of the graffiti on the sides of trains...I keep wanting to photograph some of it and post it but am afraid I would be posting gang symbols. So I restrain myself.

Fine shots of these interesting murals. I admire people who have the talent to draw and paint on such a large scale. Nice post.

These are neat! Love the flag. I like train graffiti, too and never thought about what most of it means or if I should post it...hmmm.

Oh you're right about the gang symbols - good thing you thought about that!
The murals are really cool!

I too wish I had this kind of freehand talent but I also know from experience it can be done using a projector.
I was once a PTA President and the art teacher at the school asked for help in getting volunteers to paint our cafeteria walls with 'paintings' of the greats - Monet, Picaso, etc. We did it using a projector. Kinda like painting by the numbers. The walls were wonderful. I hope they are still there. :)

These are great pictures of murals. I wonder if the flag mural has been there since 1976.
