Drug Store mural

We love a good graffiti mural.  In fact, the Teens and I seek them out everywhere we travel- and as a special perk, I can pretty much always get them to pose for me in front of their favorites.

The whole Cat mural which extended across two buildings and a door.

Even in obscure places could be found the most intriguing images – like this one that was just a small square of about 12″x 12″ etched into the wall of an abandoned building.
