What is it about Murals?/http://www.creativefreedomphoto.com/

Being an artist in paint and a photographer, I love to combine both by using murals as a backdrop for my clients. I have spotted some amazing murals in Fl,New Orleans, North Carolina.Everywhere I travel am looking for them,sometimes,they find me !! I am driving around a new place and just get lucky and of course have to stop the car and admire this amazing huge canvas. Wish I knew who the artist were,thank you mural artists for making this world a bit more interesting and colorful!

Some of my favorites…enjoy!

I  love photographing the many street musicians.If I get a chance to hang around and talk to them I try to get some contact info so I can send them the photos.

One of my favorites, I met him on a chilly December early evening near the river.
