  7. I love how it looks like a woven piece on the brick and it is kept so fresh looking.

  8. In our town I see many murals that have been painted on the sides of buildings. I need to get out there and photograph them, if not to share at least to document. Things can change so rapidly. Thanks for the reminder. Maybe I'll get out there today!

  9. I love old signs on brick buildings. This made me think that I should start photographing the ones I see when I travel and make a wall with all of them!

  12. I love advertising. I work in the industry but this old classic advertising in small towns are always favorites of mine. This paint job is FRESH looking though and not old like most.

  13. Love the painted brick! We've got old buildings around here with vintage advertising painted on them. They've faded through the years though and whoever said you need to take photos now is right because around here they're not being repainted. Pretty soon it will be hard to even read what they say.

  15. I like brick surfaces, and the colors of the sign matches perfectly.

  18. Probably a 'whole life' for those who work at this company. Makes one feel as if time felt good, maybe even better, in the old days.

    Please have a good Friday you all.
