Do you have any interesting murals in your area? I am trying to find a few in my area to take a few photos. Rode to Deland, Fl today and got a great picture of the Deland Wings Mural. Nice ride and area for anyone who lives in Central Florida

Love what Deland has done with the downtown wall art. It really put the brakes on the unsightly graffiti in the area. My favorite is the WW II aviation theme.

Ori: Hi, and great pic! My sister lived in Deland for a while, now in New Port Richey.

Asbury Park has been fairly rich in street art for some years - there's been a lot to discover since moving here a little over three years ago from NYC.


Not under the Boardwalk, but right next to it.

A few from Germany.


This one is in Lutherstadt-Wittenberg, Germany. I really wished I had 3-D glasses.
It is from a very famous photo of an East German soldier's quick decision to scale the Wall in the first days of construction.
Notice the guy's right hand. That is cool.


This one is deep in Berlin's tourist area. Catching it with no people milling about and favorable sunlight is almost impossible.

From Medford, Oregon
Took two photos today, in the neighboring southern Oregon city of Medford, where a beautiful nature-themed mural was painted some years ago on a freeway underpass. The first in color, the second in black-and-white, for a different look.


The photo doesn't quite do justice to the scope of this mural, or rather, series of linked murals beneath a freeway overpass.


At the moment I took this, a family of geese came waddling by. And if you look closely you'll see that they are walking beneath the section of mural which features a flock of geese flying by!

More Wings
Great pictures everyone, keep posting for everyone to see and enjoy. I found another wing mural, a glass house art structure, and colorful block wall. Wonder if I can find another local wing mural next weekend.

Lovely photos, OrlTee - especially the ones with Wings! I've never seen 'wings murals' in Oregon - does Florida have a monopoly on them?

Two more, different shots of the same small mural which was painted, some years ago, in the small southern Oregon town that is my adopted home.


The color version.


And a view in monochrome/black-and-white, just for fun.

Since it's Sturgis Week
With no disrespect to my Harley friends...I've never been to either, but would guess the difference between Amerivespa and the Sturgis Rally to be about 20 IQ points.
