Travel theme: Paint

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.

About ailsapm

Hi there! I’m Ailsa Prideaux-Mooney. I’ve lived in many places, and travelled to many more. I had a lot of fun getting there and being there, wherever there happened to be at the time. I climbed a castle wall in Czesky Krumlov, abseiled down cliffs to go caving in the west of Ireland, slept on the beach in Paros, got chased by a swarm of bees in Vourvourou (ok that wasn’t fun, but it was exciting), learned flower arranging in Tokyo, found myself in the middle of a riot in Seoul, learned to snowboard in Salzburg, got lost in a labyrinth in Budapest and had my ice cream stolen by a gull in Cornwall. And I’m just getting started. If you’ve enjoyed what you’ve read so far, I’d love you to follow my travelogue - wheresmybackpack.com - and remember, anyone who tries to tell you it’s a small world hasn’t tried to see it all.
