There are many grafittis on Belfast city walls, that one can be seen in North street on a store.
Some basic information : Zorro is a fictional character created in 1919 by Johnston McCulley. It has been featured in numerous books, films, tv series, and other medias.
Zorro (fox in Spanish) is the secret identity of Don Diego de la Vega, a Californian nobleman. The image of Zorro is a dashing black-clad masked outlaw who defends the people of the land against tyrannical officials, punishs cruel politicians and other villains. His horse's name is Tornado.
Bernardo is Diego's deaf horseman and confidant, the only person at first to know Diego's secret.
The sergeant Demetrio Lopez Garcia dreams of catching Zorro himself to collect the reward money, he is fat, superstitious and overfond of drink, but also kind-hearted, brave and loyal.
The story involves Diego romancing Lolita Pulido in the novel and Ana Maria Verduzco in the Tv series.

nice the graffiti of Zorro in a perfect presentation.
I like the light and the colour management as the clarity of the scene,with the work of the artist to be superb.

Interesting presentation of the character, a very well done grafittis captured with good colors and sharpness! I didn't know who had created him, I only read a story of Zorro by Isabel Allende, a Chilean writer.

everybody knows this person, and the letter Z (its signature) in bright red color adds a lot to the picture.

Some graffiti artists are quite clever and some even have sense of humour. Whoever made this managed to combine these qualities fairly well. It's a very catchy and amusing photo.

Another great capture of the street graffiti from Belfast featuring this iconic fictional character. Like he way you have resisted cropping off the scuff marks at the bottom as this adds more realism to the shot.

It is interesting that a skilled swordsman like Zoro is carrying a new modern weapon.
A very good capture of a well-drawn graffiti here. Great details and colour.
You have presented it with a nice and precise article.

i love street art when it's good, and this is a good one.
(it looks like he painted over at least part of someone else's art, tho...)
the 'visual waste' is a sharp & ironic commentary.
your note would have been more interesting if you'd told us about the street artist, rather than zorro, whom many of us are probably already familiar with.
or the street art scene in belfast.
ChrisJ (91290) 2013-09-11 10:11
I used to watch Zorro as a kid so nice to see this again. Excellent graphic street art with the red z adding to the composition. The spray can is a nice modern touch. This kind of art sure beats ugly tagging. The horizontal lines add interest. Tfs!
PiotrF (2380) 2013-09-11 14:00
That's a very usual scene of Street Art.Zorro is my hero 30 years ago;) Perfectly seen and done. Thanks for sharing.

Another impressive image with much impact at all.
Reflecting with your good sense and high inspiration as usual.

Well spotted the Zoro on the wall, Miguel.
Red and black were the right paint to use. good clear image.
eldancer1 (20824) 2013-09-12 7:45
This was my favorite movie when I was a little boy (and still is as an old man!). I like this kind of graffiti. Nicely captured with good details. Well done, tfs.

Many of these street art shots you have posted have made me smile, as does this one as well, a brilliant scene. The addition of the spray can in his hand, and the perfectly drawn figure show this is the. Work of a true artist.great capture, you brought a smile to my face today.
All the best

Walls and wallart (graffitis) are real treasure chests for photographers.
This one also quite unique !
TFS and best regards
nikkitta (8981) 2013-09-12 16:05
Zorro!! what a personage and what a funny and good capture of the graffiti in contrast with the red z letter, his signature
Like also the modern touch given by the Spray
photoray (6690) 2013-09-12 20:07
I am attracted to your large Zorro painting image, especially because my two favorite tv heroes growing up both wore masks, Zorro and the Lone Ranger. In my teen years, I graduated to James Bond, and even incorporated some of Ian Flemming's traits into my work as a Transportation agent/analyst.
Thanks for stimulating the memories, and a good art image,
Graal (92168) 2013-09-12 23:12
amazing work by any artist. Unusual graffiti. Good captured place and wall with this image. Photo I like. Zorro is a bit funny without the sword.
Have a nice day.

Hi Miguel !!
I was reading the note and thought......... you are writing about me .... Ja Ja
Well spotted ..... I like the information and a bit of humour.......
Have a fantastic week end.
ourania (18672) 2013-09-15 10:23
a well defined, dynamic and impressive graffitti, the tight framing has enhanced these qualities and your picture is very attractive. I love the brightness and the chromatic contrast of the red Z, you've placed it very well in the frame, rendering it eye-catching but not disturbing as the gaze beaming from the holes of the mask is important too. There's no sense of scale but the figure of Zoro looks very imposing. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely week,

I remember the cartoon version of Zorro from my childhood. Well seen and captured. I especially like the fact that this is predominantly B&W with a sprinkle of other colors.
PS. Yes, I did stop the car to shoot the sunset. It would be quite dangerous to try to shoot my rear view while driving!
marina7 (7162) 2013-09-16 12:17
that's a funny one.. Visual waste? I like that. At first I thought this Zorro was wielding some insecticide in the neighborhood, lol.
Have a great week!
jmdias (48359) 2013-10-05 6:43
very nice graphite with a touch of humor. I liked the framing here catching well the personage. the colors are very nice and I liked the quality of the image. TFS.
NorthernLight (1147) 2013-10-12 2:06
Zorro was one of the heroes of my childhood and youth days. Zorro, the man with a black mask and a whip.
Surprisingly that he is now being rediscovered by graffiti artists.
Captured beautifully, Miguel! Very interesting.
Have a great weekend
