Parked by the Sea

Sechelt, BC, 2010

When I saw PARK was the challenge for the meme Theme Thursday, I at once thought of this photo I took earlier this year of a turquoise car so perfectly parked by this wonderful sea mural painted by talented local artist Dean Schutz on the Sunshine Coast, north of Vancouver.  

Clicking the photo will show you a larger image and clicking the link will get you to more links to fun interpretations of the theme.

Oh, I love that mural. And what are the chances of a car the same shade of blue being parked there. This was a rare photo opportunity and you did a great job. Good take on the theme this week. :)

I like it! Of course aqua is my favorite color. That's a great shot, you have an artistic eye!

The car is such a striking color; it looks amazing. The mural is also strikingly turquoise. I'm sure your cropping went a long way toward making an interesting pic a really pleasing one.

Re: Pavement. I think I first started taking pix of the SPQR manhole covers in Rome because I knew what the letters meant. And of the fan-shaped cobbles in Paris because I love them. Then I noticed things painted on streets. But when I get into my old slides, I may find that it began before that.

Someone has quite the talent. It's very pretty. A real eye catcher.

Thanks for directing me to you murals, It's too bad that there is a shortage of them in your area. Most of the ones I've seen in Canada depict the history of the location. You are right. I was inspired by Oakland Daily Photo - Monday Mural.
