While waking in the back parking lot of the laundry & breakfast place I saw a reflection of color in a window down the block. I started walking towards it then I saw it was a reflection of a mural. I turn around and BAM a big mural (seen above).

So I was kinda memorized by this wall of ink and I totally forgot to look what the stores were in the front.

  1. LOL! The stores in front of that last mural are a soccer supply store, an electrical company, and what used to be Twin Cities Vacuum, but is now an empty storefront. It makes me kind of sad -- TC Vacuum was there FOREVER, like, seriously, since the dinosaurs roamed the earth, and I imagine (in my head) that the guy who ran it must have died. It had to have been a family business.

    If you're on that block, you MUST have photographed Intermedia Arts at least a couple times, right? :)
