here's shootin' back at you

Posted by
Harry (Apex, NC, United States) on 8 February 2020 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

this mural was painted on wall in an alley barely wider than a car. standing with my back against the other wall, with my zoom cranked wide, I still was unable to get the whole image including the frame-like painted border. So I cropped the edges a bit. While all the tones are white to black, the photo was not converted.

The mural was not signed nor was there any attribution to the artist.

SONY SLT-A77V 1/800 second F/7.1 ISO 400 27 mm (35mm equiv.)

Welcome to all. I began blogging Retained-Images in 2004 at It is gone now.
