Murals In The Capital

Today I have some murals for you, from two different locations in the city, taken on two days in late March. I was in the Byward Market one day and noticed some cubes of wood boards set up, with murals painted on them, on a traffic island. I walked over and photographed several of the murals. Some were more realistic, the last of these more fantasy.

On another day I was out in the Westboro area and noticed a large mural on a single building. I photographed from left to right.


  1. I love these! I hope you don't mind if I share them on FB. I've missed your posts.

  2. Fabulous murals William, great variety :)

  3. Hello, wonderful series of mural. The last eagle mural is awesome. Have a great day!

  4. Super use of flat urban spaces. That large one is pretty amazing with subjects not always coherently related to each other...but it works!

  5. Very nice! I love those boxes.

  6. You've found a new theme. I like murals and the ones you've found are certainly worth taking a good look at.

  7. Murals like this beautify our cities.

  8. Love that large one. I had to look twice at the climber.
