Monochrome Monday

While in Silverton Oregon last fall, we walked the towns side streets and we came upon this wonderful art Mural upon a rather large brick building.
I will have to show it in it's color glory sometime~After 2 years it still looks great, probably because it is sheilded in an alley between buildings.
We have many Murals as well, in Oregon City, that I now will take another look at for B/W.



Please do visit others Monochrome shots from around the world! Thanks so much for the fun Aileni~Monochrome Maniac

  3. Jane well, I am off to ride rain or not! just got too..it has been days and the mare will be Woo Hoo!


    Aileni yes, it was different to see that ther, as most older towns around here have the founding people or scenes of the way things "used" to be and look!
    BUT~
    Not an unusual subject for me here!

  4. It looks pretty in black and white! It's weird - I can never imagine b&w in colour..

    Thanks for your comment earlier - I'm afraid the writing under the giraffes is disappointly vague:

    "Giraffes! - a People
    Who live between the earth and skies/Each in his own religious steeple/Keeping a lighthouse with his eyes"

    Not sure if I like all that much..

  7. What phenomenal detail in this mural! Good thing it's not in a large urban center... somebody would have tagged it by now. Or maybe not... maybe there are some things even taggers respect. Great shot of it anyway!

  9. Did you ride? It turned cold, rainy and the wind was really blowing! Gilly was running back and forth in the field and acting really nervous. Our electric was off and on numerous times today. Would definitely NOT been a good day to ride!

  14. Great shot! It will be lovely in colour too me thinks.

  15. Oh...that is lovely. I think it's really cool when towns have murals on their buildings...

  16. The mural is amazing. Davenport did indeed have an Arabian Quest. I looked at the mural and thought it would cool if it was a book telling about that quest.

  17. The mural is great in B&W! Amazing that it's still in good shape.

  18. That mural is beautiful I can't think it would look any better in color. The B & W just seems to fit.
