AC came on this morning before I got up. Had heavy wind [had to bring my flowers inside again] last night with lots of lightening and thunder and rain during the night. Very,very muggy again today. I went out pulled a couple of weeds and walked to trash can. Very "dewy" by time I got back inside. Might - might go to the market but for sure nothing else outside.
So glad I took lots of pictures Sunday.
Even more murals from downtown. Most just off Fremont and between 5th to 12th streets.
This one is amazing, couldn't find anything about it online. Full picture and then some close ups of parts of it.
Love the colors and geometric designs.
Should have walked over further to take this picture.
This is an old abandoned motel. The inside courtyard is amazing and I didn't take a picture of it. Will have to go back.
Bill asked me if I'd looked at the inside, I said yes. But I'd just taken this picture of the doorway leading in.
With the sun where it was it was hard to get a photo of this one without reflection. Lots and lots of work went into it.
Just caught this one in passing.
We drove around The Container Park but didn't stop. This big grasshopper shoots fire at night. It also was made for one of the Burning Man Festivals. Several years ago we stopped and visited the park. All the buildings in it are made from old shipping containers. If you are interested CLICK HERE to see that blog. Interesting place.
The backs of some of the containers. I wish people wouldn't park in front of them. And come on city, don't put your signs right in front of murals.
Back into the downtown area again. Saw this...“Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas” by Ruben Sanchez – Las Vegas Blvd. and Fremont St. Created for 2015’s Life is Beautiful, this cubist style painting uses colors associated with the desert to incredibly depict the offbeat, kooky main character in the 1998 film of the same name. At ground level and full of life and energy, some great shots can be taken here.
Didn't notice this one until I was looking at my pictures. So it is not very good. Both on the El Cortez Hotel “The Meaning” by Pixel Pancho –
This mural also created for 2015’s Life is Beautiful, depicts life by way of two robots. This piece is sweet and intimate but also thought-provoking. Meant to inspire people to think about their reliance on and obsession with money and the fact that “we (do) not own this planet, we are a part (of it).” Any couple could take away their own message from this mural and capture these feelings in incredible photos.
This is across the street from the Container Park. The whole one and then some close ups of portions of it.
