Murals- a town tells its story..

I love photographing street art and graffiti and have been blown away by the number and quality of such art in cities such as Philadelphia. For this week's challenge though I take you to the small town of Katikati, bay of plenty, north island, New Zealand where they have depicted their history ALL OVER the town in murals. As you can see in the mural above, they have put names to many of the characters depicted- those who played a part in the towns development.
These are just a tiny selection and I hope you agree they are a super way to tell that story.
Have a great day and if you want to others' take on this week's challenge follow the link below.

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla If you have come as a baker my blog is i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)
