Wow! That's gorgeous! Good choice for Wordless Wednesday. I need to share that image with a friend so I'm emailing the link.

Joy!

Sandy Carlson said...

I sure do love that! Graffiti in all its permutations is exciting. Happy WW.

Hi Sandy,

The interesting thing is that it's part of a wide (probably four metres) horizontal image on a wall that faces the street.

But to me, the most striking image was this segment, which I had to shoot vertically instead.

Cheers

Thank you, Sandee,

It was an interesting one to shoot in that light - I should have taken one from the other side as well.

On the to-do list for my next trip!

Cheers

This is absolutely beautiful. I bet it is breathtaking in person!

A rainbow painted like a mosaic. Hmmm... It's like a rainbow within a rainbow. Neat idea, and it turned out well. Was the rest of the mural as beautiful?

I knew sandy would like it. It is possibly the strangest rainbow I have ever seen and that makes it a excellent photographic subject.

Have a good one.

Cool. Purdy. I always love to see urban areas with cool murals, but I also love too see trains go by with cooll graffiti on the sides. Some of those folks are real artists.
