I’ve been doing a little bit of decorating this week and am currently paint-splattered and taking a break, so here are a few paint-themed photos from past travels. First up, a glamorous mural adorns the derelict interior of an abandoned casino on the Asbury Park boardwalk in New Jersey.
Some more murals; this one is part of the Mural Mile in Philadelphia…
…and these fabulous murals of Bogie and Bergman create the perfect frame for an outdoor movie screen in Seattle’s Fremont neighbourhood.
Then there was the faded paint-peeling glory of Coney Island …
..and last, but certainly not least, the adorable Donkey from Shrek, carved with a chainsaw and painted to perfection, on the way to California’s Lost Coast.
