A blog about city planning and urban culture
My favorite is with the kids and the old man blowing smoke. Im not sure why, but it just characterizes the feeling I get in some of Philly's tougher neighborhoods. It's like there is hope but yet still a lot of sorrow.
The one with the old man smoking is the one I like. I've appreciated it for a while. I think my sister is the one who exposed me to it first. It just captures me when I see it. Especially in person. With all of the surroundings. I think the settings for some of the mural really make some of them "pop." I recall reading an article on the mural arts program not to long ago which showed another mural which is amoung my favorites. It's off on 7th and chestnut basically. What's amazing about it, is that the mural is on a narrow parking lot. So to stand there and take it in is really engulfing. It's one of the cooler aspects about it.
