A mural, sort of hidden on a side street

vending_machine_mural

Sometimes at lunch, I go outside for a walk. That's how I found this neat mural at Smitty's Vending, Inc., on the corner of SE 7th Avenue and Main. Those who drive west on Main or walk south on 7th have the best chance to notice the mural. Oh, I guess those who drive east on Main might notice it, if they look sharply to the right after they've safely crossed 7th. I think even if you don't read English very well, you'd know what sort of business goes on in this flat-roofed building. Do any of the businesses near your work or home have murals on their walls?

This mural is very tricky :-))

We have murals in Montpellier but they show people, they are not "related" to business.

Neat! I don't know of any around here but I will keep my eyes open. I wonder why all the bars on the windows and door?

I just noticed that the middle vending machine doesn't have any legs. It's sort of just floating above the painted ground.

That is an apt advertisement for the business.

That's clever! A blue ribbon to the artiste...

There are a few murals on buildings in downtown and mid-city Baton Rouge. I hope to post some photos of them in the next week or so.
