  1. This is the "Os Gêmeos Mural", located on Houston Street in Manhattan. I visited the wall after reading about it in the NY Times

  2. Nice shots. Interesting how the first one makes it look rather small.
     
  3. An interesting piece of art, nicely captured.
     
  4. I guess it's the way the frames were stitched? The wall is 17' high by 51' long. Thanks :smile:

    Thank you Louis
     
  5. You call that a mural..:tongue::eek:  Geez.. Well looks good to me...
     
  6. Way cool. I am so glad you post such cool stuff for us to see of NYC.
    The colours and the Pano are really amazing.
    Thanks

  8. Yep, I do :tongue: Thanks!

    Your welcome and thanks for looking Barb :wink:

    Thanks Rui. Are you familiar with these guys? They are from Brazil and speak Portuguese & have done some work in Europe.
     
  9. I like the concept of the mural. I wish I could go there and see it in person. The combination of colors is fascinating. Thanks for sharing Dez.

    God Bless,
    David
