an unknown artist created this mixed media mural on a wall
outside a vacant office building I saw from the highway
driving through a small town on a recent road trip
surprise...screech...stop
snap...smile

Good on you for having your camera with you. I always drive past something and think - oh if only I had my camera - then feel miserable for the opportunity lost. What a talented artist - the mural is great.

Someone should create a bumper sticker for those of us who "screech ... stop ... and snap!" So glad you did. The colors are great.

I wonder how big it is and why I don't always have my camera with me. This is wonderful. As well as the new banner. Loving the soft grey.

Love this!!!!! So true for so many of us. Husbands don't always understand though. ;)

The bottom bits look like gumballs. I'm sure they're not, but wouldn't that have been funny?
