Monday Mural #7:

2011_13_11 006
This is a mural in front of the Academy of Chinese Culture and Health Services in Oakland, CA. When I captured this image, I thought the place was a medical clinic, but I found out that it’s actually a school teaching ancient form of Asian medicine like accupuncture, etc.

Photo Hunt #174: Local Street/Texture

P1030579
When we went to Puerto Vallarta (2011) I noticed that the local street has rough texture, from the cobblestone. Most of the downtown area has cobblestone.

P1030634
Not too far away from downtown the local street is unpaved. A totally different texture from the cobblestone.

LOCAL STREET is the theme for GATTINA’S KEYHOLE PICTURES.

TEXTURE is the theme for SANDI’S WHISTLE STOP PHOTO HUNT.

For today the lett is O. Three Os describe Hearst Castle in San Simeon, California and these are: opulent, ornate and ostentatious. See for yourself.

Monday Mural #6:

Since the beginning of joining this meme until now and for the foreseeable weeks of Monday Mural, I’d be sharing with you photos that I took before I even knew of the existence of this meme.

Live Without Borders
This one for instance was shot 2/13/10 while running errands. We were driving along San Pablo Avenue in Berkeley when at a stop light I spotted the side wall of Mi Tierra Foods decorated with this mural. I took a shot because, well, it looked pretty from where I was sitting. I only glanced at it while on a stop light.

While preparing to share this I googled if there is some information available on this mural. Turns out there is. This mural is called LIVING WITHOUT BORDERS (Vivir Sin Fronteras). 18′ x 58′ acrylic mural on stucco.

Read more about the mural here.

I am really bad with flower names. So I’m just going to keep sharing them. If you know what they’re called, please feel free to educate me. Thanks.
