Now I would make a point of parking there every day just so I could stare at that mural! Very nice!

that's one thing I really love about the East side of the US, those marvelous murals

It would catch anyone's eye! Fantastic! The artist is particularly good at trompe l'oeil — the architectural elements look so real!

Where was this one? Do you know they have a tour of murals? Well, actually several that go to different areas. I need to find the link again, I would love to spend a day checking out this amazing artwork! You captured it well!

Hi Martha, I don't remember exactly where it is, just that it's walking distance from city hall near Ave of the Arts.
I've heard about the mural tours, that sounds pretty cool.
Thanks to all for the nice comments I really appreciate them.

I like the way you caught our attention, which pretty much forced us to continue on down to the other photos...excellent composing!

Now, this has to be one of the weirdest murals I've ever seen...at first I thought it religious, but I don't think so...it appears perhaps to be about justice?

Do you know what it all means?

I am not a fan of murals, but this is really spectacular. The artist, a real artist this time, has an incredible imagination and talent to realize his ideas. Excellent images, you photographed it very well.

Beautiful mural. We just don't realize that we see art at different unexpected places.
