    A powerful mural. This one reaches out and grabs you - even from a block away. The backdrop and feel of the city feed into it.

    GG; I had no idea there is so much spectacular art in Detroit. I still have visions of crude graffiti all over the place. The murals are a great improvement.

    The mural scene is definately gaining huge momentum. Besides the local artists, world renowned artists are adding their work as well.

    This year was the third annual "Murals In The Market" and it appears to be another success; lots of the murals I've been posting lately are fresh new pieces from that venue. Hopefully this venue continues on indefinately.

    The only thing that bothers me is when they cover over a remarkably brilliant mural with a new one. Some of these murals are so nice that it just seems like a sin for it to disappear forever. Guess it is that much more imperative that I capture all of the best ones - and freeze them in time before it's too late.

    An example is from my favorite muralist: Fel3000ft. While all of these muralist's have incredible talent, in my eyes, Fel3000ft's work just stands out a notch. Another level. Maybe it is the vividness of colors that he portrays, that appeals so much to me. His colors pop and his work often has a distinct clarity; a freshness. This is a new one he just did, and it is amazing ...

    ... but, he covered up one of my favorites in the process. Should have left this, and found a new wall to mural up with new work. Glad I still have a photo of the angel sewing up the heart, which I believe is representative of Detroit.

    While I was illegally parked in front of this new mural, snapping off pictures, during the hustle and bustle of the suburbanite shoppers on market day, a man quickly broke ranks from his family and darted over to inspect the versatile GSA.

    He started circling it. Admiring all of the brackets, guards, lights, farkles, and it's uniqueness in general, while firing off questions and mentioning to his son that they needed to look into some of these bikes. When he saw the Bun Burner Gold license plate frame he called his son over and pointed it out to him in amazement.

    There really isn't another motorcycle quite like the GSA, especially when you walk up on a farkled out example, and are not already conditioned to them. It is an imposing beast.

    The Historic District of Marietta, Ohio is peaceful this morning.

    Managed to get lost a few times today in Wayne National Forest. Love when that happens; means your really wandering. Lost for a reason.

    Seems like the story of my life ... the Twilight Zone. Feel like I'm a ghost wandering the earth. But ... occasionally I'll see my own reflection and know I'm really here.

    Yesterday on the way home, while passing through Bucyrus, Ohio, this unbelievable three-dimensional mural presented itself.
