Yes, it is not Monday but I am away.
Joining with Sami and others for Monday Mural.
As wonderful as they are, and take a look here at Hels post of some of the murals to be found on grain silos in country Victoria, you don't have to go to the country to see massive mural like those. We have one right here in inner Melbourne on the side of of a public housing block in Collingwood.
Collingwood is a very old part of Melbourne and an interesting area. It is very diverse, ethnically and in many other ways. Honestly though, I feel out of place there. It is so different to my side of town.
They are all pictures of residents of the block. One anecdote I heard was that one of subjects when asked if she would like to be painted, she thought it would be a small picture on a bus shelter or similar and was surprised to see herself appear larger than life on the side of the block.
The downside I suppose is that some residents have paint on their windows, a small price to pay. It is on the southern wall and is protected from the worst of the sun, and so should last quite well.
