    Special. :thumb
    Cutting of the bottom part (just the part with the pavement) makes the illusion even stronger and adds to the effect of the monotone mural and the colored bike. A very nice picture.

    There is a 3rd man atmosphere, indeed. Strong movie.
    And a strong soundtrack. :strum

    Oh thank you, I'm pretty safe. Guess even more than safe - I'm a risk myself, a risk to public order. Particularly on Friday nights.

    Eastern Europe has always enjoyed great graphic artists. Partly because they never dropped academic standards. Super.

    The strategic nuclear MRBM division's canteen at the partly-disused Byelokorovichi missile operating base in N Ukraine, lavishly decorated in mural mosaїcs early nineteen-eighties' ( times of the USSR strategic missile corps full blossom and bottomless funding ) Soviet style:

    Some were not just funny but real time capsule-like, e. g. this СЛАВА КПСС! ( GLORY TO THE CPSU! - the Communist Party of the Soviet Union ) - very few of these once-omnipresent propaganda slogans have survived the past two decades:

    Some of the mosaїcs had never been completed before the troops vacated the base - only the charcoal scatches over the plaster remained, like ghosts of those departed:

    Now you can only imagine how lively it had been during the Soviet nuclear missile heyday of the nineteen-seventies and eighties.
