Kid on a bike

23 Sep

When we thought that the walk around Armenian street was over, we were excited when we discovered one more piece of art around the corner! This kid on the bike was not literally on a wall but on a door so I was wondering if this is called the door painting? For this, an old bike was secured firmly against the wall as part of yet another work by Ernest Zacharevic. Another thing that attracted me is that the wall painting was done not on a clean wall but an dirty wall with paint peeling off. I sort of like the feel of the whole picture that I am sharing below as the whole image did not give me a clean feeling as it looks like it has a long way back.

In my opinion, the red old door did give my picture a very nice touch and color contrast. It did not take us long to stroll around the lanes in Armenian street to visit the wall paintings, in fact, it only took us less than half a day to do that. The picture shown below was taken with 16-35mm f2.8L USM on 5D II.

    You could certainly see your enthusiasm in the work you write. The world hopes for even more passionate writers like you who aren’t afraid to say how they believe. Always follow your heart.

    Noticed someone drew a ‘vicious dog’ chasing the kid on the bike…

    You take beautiful photos. =] I love how colorful they are, and they just really give you a taste of where you have traveled. Unfortunately my adventures have not taken me anywhere out of America, but I hope to be able to travel one day and see some of the awesome places you have captured. Keep taking these amazing photos. =]

    Went to Penang last November for the marathon and accidentally stumbled upon this piece of art. Was trying to look for it earlier but to no avail, until on my last day in Penang, ate capati at a nearby stall, and saw this. Missing Penang so much!
