Another Richmond Mural


This mural was done in the Vincenty of the Mural I presented a week or two ago under the challenge heading of ‘hands‘. The message was worthy of passing along as was the art work, even though a bit primitive.

A close up view of a well advised message.

The big picture of how this wall ties in with the building on which it is painted.

These murals are located on the South side of Richmond, in an older, more run down part of town.  As with all cities, some areas are better than others.

  1. Im my country this kind of work is usually related with violence but I don’t agree with that. Good message. Great post.

    • Thank you. A lot of our street artists use their talents in a positive manner. Thank you for the kudos, and the visit. :) Have a great upcoming week.

    • I love the murals, too. I really need to go to Richmond on a few occasions and scout out some more street art. I went up there today, with that intent in mind, and couldn’t get past the fine architecture until my camera began misbehaving. I’m sure it would help if I knew what I was doing. LOL. I don’t claim to be a photographer, by any means. ;)

  2. Oh, I love murals like that, especially if they have strong and positive messages like that in them. Great art work and great shot. :)
    PS: I’ve gone back to my blogspot sweetie. I just don’t know what to blog about anymore and it’s of no use in having two blogs and just post the same thing on both of them. I am more the creative kind and I don’t believe in blogging just because I feel I have to and I just don’t feel like it, but I will come and visit regularly. I am still subscribed. :)
    *hugs*

    • I am following you, Sonel, although I am missing some of your/everybody’s posts here and there. I think right now, I am about 850 unanswered e-mails behind. :( However, I am always thinking positive thoughts, when I think of you. Hopefully, one day, I’ll get caught up with all of my friends in cyberspace, myself. I know what it is like to be busy. Give yourself a big hug for me, Sonel. Olivia and Oscar send their love, too. :)

    • Thank you, Erin. I took a couple more today, painted on the side of a Latino Market I ran across, so will probably post those soon. I got some fabulous architectural detail shots, today, too. I hope to post a few of those photos shortly. Thank you so much for your visits. I hope to get out and about and visit everyone else soon. There’s so much to see and learn on the blog scene. It is sometime overwhelming, though. I don’t know how you keep up. :)

    • I’ve probably passed that mural a time, or two, and never really paid attention to it, since it is on a side street. I saw it when I stopped to photograph the mural for the ‘hands’ challenge a couple of weeks ago. I turned around and this mural was right there staring at me. I have to wonder what else I’m missing, while I watch the road when I’m driving. Obviously, I need a chauffeur. ;) Thanks for stopping by for a visit, Rommel. It’s always a pleasure to see you. :)

    • To be honest, Martin, the ways things are going these days, police officers and violence seem to go hand in hand. Although, our illegal President is talking about using armed drones, even here on American soil. I suspect before all is done, we will all be wondering who our real enemies are, and who are the peacemakers? I think drugs will be the least of our worries. So sad.

      • I can’t speak for the US situation but I feel that our police are often ‘piggy-in-the-middle’ and stuck with having to do what the government wants. At the moment they’re very upset with the government and are having to police anti government protests that they agree with as they are suffering the same government cuts as the protesters! To quote Gilbert & Sullivan… “A Policeman’s lot is not a happy one… happy one”.

    • Thank you for the visit, Madhu. Now, if only people heed the message. You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make them drink, so I’ve heard. :)

  3. Empty neat monochrome nicely painted walls on streets are so yesterday – a mural, a message, art of the streets is so much better, and I love this shot – effective way of getting a message out there.

    • Thank you, Ella. I almost missed this one, since it is on a side street in a part of town, I don’t often travel. But alas, I saw it, so now you get to, too. :) Thanks for taking the time to check it out. :)

  5. Good message in that mural. It goes to show that Virginia is a long way from Washington and Colorado states wher the “recreational use” of marijuana has just been decriminalized.
