An Odd Mural
During my walk today, I came across this odd looking mural. Faded and peeling from the brick, and on close inspection, this mural has some interesting characters… Continue reading An Odd Mural
One of the things I love about Reno…
…is the community’s support for the Arts and discovering new murals while walking around downtown. This fish mural on a wall along the Truckee River is a perfect example of that love. Colorful and tells a story. Not sure it makes up for the paltry looking river, but it certainly helps Continue reading One of the things I love about Reno…

Day of the Dead Themed Mural
Because of the Bus Driver Strike, I had to walk to the grocery store today. A nearly 4 mile roundtrip walk. I took advantage of the trip not only to get a few days worth of groceries, but to get a close up view of this mural. A mural that I pass in the bus whenever I go to the store. A mural I’ve been wanting to capture for some time now. And I got my milk and eggs as well… Continue reading Day of the Dead Themed Mural
A mural nearing completion?
When I reported this mural back on July 13 I thought maybe it was nearing completion. You could tell it represented the area with the Sierra Nevada Mountains and the Truckee River flowing through it. It had, what appeared to be an artistic flair, with children’s scribble mixed in. Guess I was wrong. Today the scribble was covered up with more beautiful pastel colors. Either way, it represents the area well… Continue reading A mural nearing completion?

Rainbow flag a day later
If I hadn’t gotten the images of the freshly painted crosswalk art yesterday, you would never know it was redone. Today it was once again showing wear and tear from the traffic. Whether malicious damage or just regular traffic wear. But there was one young lady who was excited to be a part of the Pride rainbow mural… Continue reading Rainbow flag a day later
This was the second attempt…
…at painting the rainbow flag under the Reno Arch to show the city’s support for Pride Month and the LGBTQ community. The street mural was originally painted last month, but was vandalized within hours of it’s unveiling. Continue reading This was the second attempt…

Murals big and small
A crew of painters were busy creating a giant mural on the downtown ReTRAC plaza. The 18,000 sq ft gray slab, covering the railroad track trench below, will be covered by a mural envisioned by artist Brad Carney, a Philadelphia based muralist. In the mean time, a few blocks south, a smaller mural was being painted on a utility box Continue reading Murals big and small
The previous theme allowed me to apply a different header photo every time the page was loaded. This theme doesn’t provide that option. An option I loved, as it allowed me to use my own photographs by cropping them to the proper dimensions, highlighting the important part of an image sans the watermarking… Continue reading Header Images
I wanted to get a shot of this mural before the afternoon sun cast it’s shadows upon it. Shown here optically changed to appear like it was shot with a fisheye lens Continue reading Mural
