Theme Day: Graffiti or Street Murals

 
This is an abandoned business but I have always liked the murals or wall art!
There are over 144 blogs participating. It should be an interesting visit around the world. Enjoy Theme day!

  2. Nice works - would they have been stencilled on as they are advertisements, aren't they?

    Sexy new camera, Neva!

  4. Looks like the sort of thing that could easily disappear.
    I hope you photographed each one individually.

  5. Looks great. Much more interesting than most posts today, mine included!

  6. Love the old poster style murals. Very nice.

    (The Perugina stencil must p-off every single Italian that sees it. They've misspelled the word cioccolatieri!) :D

    Have a nice Theme Day, Neva.

  7. Very nice, draws the eye to what is a blank side of a wall.

  8. Each mural could be a post in it's self ... I notice the leaves have quickly come to Illinois this year (smile).

  18. I couldn't register for the Theme day - it was closed 2 days before!! Not to worry my graphic card died so my photos aren't retrievable anyhow - am using stuff from my work computer.

    I like these as they are art - not into graffiti much!!!!

  25. Thanks for your visiting, Neva!
    The 2# photo is a good graffiti photo indeed. It was taken by my husband. But I don't participate on Daily Photo.

    I just changed the legend of my 1# photo, really it's better "Beware" than "Warning". Thanks for that! Have a nice Sunday!

  26. Abandoned or no, it's lovely art that can give pleasure to everyone--even those of us in different time zones! Lovely indeed!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I do like the outdated charm of these advertisements! Well done, Neva!
    (and I must say you are much too kind with me in your comments!)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Nice to see some real street art instead of the senseless graffiti most of us have to endure.

    Very nice.

    ReplyDelete
  29. They are also ads right? What better way to showcase them! VEry lovely!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Nice way to brighten a dull wall.

  31. Thats great, proper street art. I think Street Art adds to an area, Graffiti takes something away.

    ReplyDelete
  32. It's very nice. I would like to see when the sun is go down and those spot list is showing the each mural as like art gallery.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Those are great reproductions of old ads -- they add a lot of character to the building.
