Hi JM,

WOW, this was interesting and different. I think it looks fantastic. Maybe I think they should have written this on a wall and not on the building though........

Have a great Sunday!

Best regards
Asta

Someone has gone to a lot of trouble to express themselves! All of the paint looks quite out of place on such and old building.

wow, this is creative graffiti that really stands out. good capture. I am glad you enjoyed the Rock photo on my site. I have condors, red sand dunes, and plant life coming up next. The area around page, Arizona and on Navajo lands is really quite spectacular. We also have new photos from Uruguay up today on our vivalavoyage.com site. Make sure you go to Uruguay at the right time of the year to see the beautiful plants and trees and flowers in bloom.

A mixture of two different eras.
Nice and interesting capture.

I don't like graffiti. This is fun I suppose.

Unlike many others you post previously, it's clear that THIS buidling has not undergone through restoration recently, although it was applied some interesting artwork... :)
God bless you!

Oh my, what a find! I love the old building with it's sagging roof. I wonder how long it sat there slowly being digested by nature before it was given the new paint job by the "Beach Boys".

Good to see the Beach Boys aren't just in California!

Vogon Poet said...

Not a fan of murals, but in this case the old building has nothing to lose and the art id funny and well done!

Lois said...

That is a great shot JM! Someone really put a lot of time and effort into that.

This would have been a good photo for Contrast! Great photo.

Jacob said...

I hope the building is not still in use. I would assume whoever did this is not the owner of the building. I therefore assume they are morons!

Leif Hagen said...

Seems like an abandoned building - guess it's ok to paint! Cool graffiti!

BlossomFlowerGirl said...

Wonderful photo - just love that art work. Very artistic and colourful.

The graffiti has put some spring in the step of this old building, breathed some new life into it, given it renewed street cred. What a terrific composition, JM.

Cristóbal said...

Great contrast. If the building is abandoned, it would be good if it was used as an art house.

Mirela said...

Very cool photo! The face on that guy is hilarious! Do you think it's a self-portrait? :)

Babzy said...

A house whitch needed seriously to be repainted ;)

Jim K said...

Look like the building could use a roof, mabye the beach boys will volunteer. I do like the graffiti.

Marie-Noyale said...

Didn't know that version!

AB said...

Great graffiti, great house. Could a roof be more dilapidated without falling down completely?

Andrea said...
