I also like that the windows on the second floor are evenly spaced and even the a/c units do not detract from the symmetry.
*this past weekend was Port Elgin's Pumpkinfest if you were wondering why there would be pumpkins at the beach.
Whimsical Windows, Delirious Doors

An intersting looking new build and the mural is fabulous- the real life lorry works well in the context too- you turned a negative to a positive.
I understand your frustration - but that truck does fit rather well...that is a very nice mural!
I know the feeling when parked vehicles are blocking the view of the mural. In your case it was the perfect choice to included the parked truck in your photo. It's a good comparison between old and new.
The truck fits very well in the mural, I agree.
It must have been awfully frustrating to try to wait for there to be nothing there. You would have had to camp out on the parking lot. Maybe I don't have an eye for murals because I never see any. I must be blind to them. You certainly have enough of them over there. Well, it does keep you busy hunting them down. I should have a hobby like that. Can you suggest one?
That is really a unique scene. I agree, the truck really adds to the shot...it provides an updated version of the antique truck!
I like the truck parked there and it isn't like you could wait around there for ever!
and, at least both trucks are facing the same way!
How cool the Fords of a different era sit next to each other. The building seems to harken back to the days of the Model A. Wether or not it is that old, it feels so...the mural is a work of art. The suburban shopping plazas have non of the aura of this. Wish it was nearby me...
Past and present linked. Good call. And I do believe you about the pumpkins. What I can't believe is that it's that time of year again! Thank you for contributing to Monday Mural.
That is a gorgeous building even without the mural! I'm also impressed with the symmetry, and I really like the roofline! I'd be happy to see the pumpkins a different time, but the dance of the two trucks does make for a lovely composition :)
Have a great week!
Oh yes, I know what you mean. I have several upcoming mural photos with the annoying vehicle or two, or three in the way. A few NO PARKING signs would be welcomed by us photographers.
ah, but as you can see, there is also one of those no parking signs (and a stop sign) in the way, too!
Sometimes cars and such can be annoying. But I do like the two trucks in this shot. Looks almost like you planned it that way!
How frustrating. Unfortunately, I know the feeling!
