As I mentioned before, the walls adjoining empty blocks of land are often brightened up with murals that try to distract the eye from ugly "wounds" left by the earthquake or that try to lift the people's spirit as the city reconstructs and redefines itself.
YOU CAN'T KEEP A GOOD TOWN DOWN and that is a feeling that is strongly picked up as one walks along the streets of Christchurch.

This is an amusing and amazing piece of graffiti of a kind that could adorn many grey and ugly walls, earthquake or not. It was a good idea to include the car so we could get an idea of the location (well, yes, maybe the car was impossible to get rid of). I was surprised to find out that I could actually buy graffiti from that web site, but I'm not quite sure how they actually deliver it.

J'aime beaucoup les murales et celle-ci à table avec le chien est magnifique. La ville voisine de mon village est la capitale des murales, elles nous racontent l'histoire de la ville. L'été il y a un circuit touristique pour les visiter. Excellente qualité d'image, bons détails et superbes couleurs.
Toutes mes félicitations,

Well spotted! I couldn't think of a better quote to describe the spirit of that brave city.
I like the combination of real world and the mural. At first glance the car appears to be a part of the painting.

Vie izgleda kao stranica iz stripa nego kao fotigrafija iz grada. Odlično!

It's surely a good, colourful and even attractive solution, I like the painting also. You got a good composition with the car.

the presence of this car added a 3-D effect in the image, looking like it is more real or the car was a drawing. nice quality of the image and very beautiful graffiti. TFS.
