It really is quite amazing how the mural fools the eye. With the comic book style treatment, now even the cars seem to be part of the mural. Wonderful choice for the theme.

Fenix: Thank you!

BTW, I need help with the cdpb - I don't think my feed is registered and I couldn't find the 'tools' - LOL - help!!

I like the 3-D effect and the colours. Similar to mine, in a way--and thanks for your visit.

Jilly said...

this is a lovely mural. Must have been difficult too on that bumpy blockwork. Very nice.

Hyde DP said...

what a lovely mural

you probably still need to register your blog with CDPB [just joining the forum is only a first step] and once approved you'll be able to access the tools &c

I do an independent guide and will add you to that shortly [probably tomorrow]

Great cartoon effect on the mural. I use GIMP on my laptop and it has a "cartoon" effect that is interesting, when used appropriately.

It is certainly a fun effect.

But with or without the effect, from your description of this place, I anticipate you will find some oddly interesting things to photograph.

Southern Heart said...

I love this one....great effect!

I don't think that you were on my "list" today. Thank you for leaving a comment so that I could find you! :)

Joy said...

That is a fantastic mural! How many people did it?

If there's a will there's a way :) I like the colour they chose to spray paint the wall.

Thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and for leaving your comments. Do visit again!

Happy Theme Day!

Fénix: Thank your again for you encouragement!

Kate: I agree, they were very similar. Thanks for your visit as well.

Jilly: That's for sure! Thanks for coming by.

Hyde & Clueless All I can say is, "I'm challenged, in more way than one, lol." Thank you for any help you can offer, and thanks for stopping by!

Oswegan: Thank you. This is an interesting area, to say the least.

Southern Heart: Thank you. I wasn't on the list, I just joined CDPB yesterday. Thanks for stopping by!

Joy: I have no idea how many people created it ... it seemed to have a 'company' name under the title, and the gentleman I spoke with at Makinson's couldn't really tell me much. This is my favorite mural in the area.

Jim said...

Your pictures are great, I love the comic book style.

George Townboy said...

Jim: Thank you, I appreciate that! Thanks for stopping by.

Place your cursor over "members" (just below the City Daily Photo banner) and click "my blogs." Remember to log in first.

Looking good, eh? :)

George Townboy said...

Fénix: Looking great! Thanks to you.

As for the CDPB, I've done that a number of times, and just tried again. This is what I get: My blog link working; rss going to "server not found"; last updated "never"; status "accepted"; that's it.

My feed was not syndicated when I signed up, but I thought the page said I would be able to update at a later date. I can't find a way to do that. Also, I can't find a link for tools. All I want is the drop down box for the sidebar. The link I have on the sidebar now I got from the forum.

Oddly enough, I did find a link for tools the other day, but I hadn't been accepted yet, and it said I didn't have permission to access the page. I haven't been able to revisit that since, lol.

I know I'm challenged when it comes to these things, so be patient with me and I'll get through it just fine I'm sure. (lol, lol, lol)

I appreciate everything you've done for me.

This is absolutely one of my favorites in Theme day...Love your blog...I will be back

Helen said...

Very nice! Great choice for theme day!

Fénix - Bostonscapes said...

OK, unfortunately, i can't help with that, but I know you are not the only one with that problem. At least two other bloggers have been talking about this on the forum.

Try this. Go to the forum, log in, and post a question with something like "Igor or Demosthenes: I can't access the tools" as a tittle in the "Technical Issues" forum.

They usually answer within the day.
