Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I would but I don't live in the city. I live out in the middle of nowhere. The only graffiti I know of is on the bike trail in the tunnel and I'm not taking a picture of my bike amongst a bunch of spray painted penises.

We have a fair share of wall and fence art in the central FL area. Fence art along one trail is especially entertaining.

And that's a painting. The wall it is painted on is completely flat. Without that painting, it would look like any other ordinary boring flat white wall.

Chemainus is full of murals ... quite an interesting little town to visit. If you click the photos it will take you to my Flickr page where I have photos of quite a few of Chemainus's other murals etc.
