A Parrot plus Five Smokestacks =

I am no longer surprised at the amount of time and creative effort that artists put into designing and painting outdoor murals. I like the hunt and finding them hidden away in public and private places all around Tampa. This mural is painted on the side of a 24-hour coin laundry situated on a busy commercial street. Do click on it and look at it closely. Simply amazing. And, to add tho the overall effect, in some odd way, I think that the five brightly painted and capped vent stacks on the roof complete the scene. (I know, I know, it's not the Louvre.)


  1. It may not be the Louvre, but I louve it! I mean, love it.

    You keep amazing me...I wonder if other cities have all this art work on walls and we just never see it ...

    Super photo, Mr. Frank. Or, to parrot someone at the Louvre, bon foto!

  2. It is much better than the Louvre. It only has four stacks.

  3. What a nice, colorful artistic and fun wall!
    I like it a lot!
    Thanks for sharing.

  4. Graffiti and wall painting are always great subjects. This is one which is definitely best in colour.

  5. That green really screams! I want to know what a parrot in what seems to be a radioactive swamp has to do with a laundry! ;)

    Fun! I wish all our bare walls had murals like the ones you find there!
