Monday Mural

I've shown you this mural before but it was a long time ago, with a lesser camera. However I did stitch the last one together to make it one panel. This time it is just in sections. Left to right, the first two are on one side of an alley and the the last three panels are on the other side. The second mural is much larger. Because it is a narrow walking alley, it is rather hard to photograph. Rather nice, aren't they, with good detail. Click the photos to make them larger.

Northside.




Southside.

  1. They are nice. And look to be graffiti free - which is another bonus.

  2. EC, while the lane is quite sheltered from the weather, I am more than surprised how fresh they look, and as you say, no graffiti. I wonder if they have been redone.

  3. Murals can be much more satisfying than a series of separate paintings or posters. The continuity over time or space makes perfect sense.

    1. Hels, yes, and I quite like very large paintings too.

  4. Very clever...let's hope they remain untouched by destructive hands of the pointless and ignorant.

    1. Lee, I would have seen the mural about five times over as many years and I cannot remember it ever being touched.

  5. Murals are a great way to portray a town/area's history. Bowen, the place where we often spend time in the winter has quite a few. I must get out and about this year and 'snap' some.
    Are you going to tell us where these ones are?

  8. Crikey Andrew ... those murals are great. Mum really likes them. Me .... I’d probably pee on ‘em. You did a really good job of photographing them.

    1. Yes Charlie, you probably would do exactly that.

  9. Those murals are great. I wonder if they have been done with weatherproof/ weather resistant paint. that would account for how fresh they look.

    1. River, I don't know about the weather resistant paint, but you may well be correct. It would be very hard to repaint them.

  10. Very nice Andrew, looks like there is a lot of local content here. Those big murals are tricky, this is when you need a wide angle lens.. I'm really missing mine!

    1. Grace, yes, it is probably more meaningful to local people than casual observers. Maybe I will buy a DSLR as a retirement present for myself.

    1. Jayne, it seems odd to me that no one takes any notice of the mural. I think it is worth a trip to see.
