Bicycling On A Pretty Day

This mural is downtown in the city of Harrisonburg Virginia. I like it for it's depiction of simple pleasures, childhood fun, and innocence.


Do you get the feeling that I was being watched?

What a delightful mural that is. I'm thinking how fun it would be to ride a bike through a puddle too. Looking closer at this I am wondering what that is under the giant dandelion. It looks like a fried egg.
It does look like someone is watching you through those blinds...lol

I would venture to say that the artist has run through a few puddles in their time, to think of adding this.

That is a lovely, happy looking mural--and a bit nostalgic too. Those were good days.
