  1. It is beautiful, but is it a mural? It looks to be sheeting of some kind, stretched along the wall. Technicality, really. I do like the way you’ve “mounted” it, with the cracked curb in the foreground. Nice.

    • I’m glad you like it Shannon…and great eye! 🙂

      I didn’t realize until I brought it into Photoshop that it is really not a mural painted on the side of the building. It is actually painted on outdoor media (most likely Dupont Tyvek), then hung on the wall. Tyvek is used for outdoor signage such as banner advertisements. It is exactly 15’x50′.


  2. Nature’s Child. I made this capture after spending the night at the Biltmore Hotel. When I left the hotel from the Olive Street entrance the next morning, this mural was directly across the street. There was no way I could miss it, and it was early enough where there weren’t many pedestrians. I quickly set up my camera and tripod, made the capture, and walked the two blocks to my loft at the Mandel where I immediately processed it.


  3. sukiyama02. When capturing someone else’s art there are two directions you could go in. You could make it a record shot faithfully capturing the reality of the object or person as subject in a certain place at a certain time. The other way would be to make it your own by exploring the unreality, something that is not already there. It is not easy, especially in downtown Los Angeles where you must make an artistic decision in minutes or even seconds, but if you can pull it off…it is now your art.
