Theme day - graffiti in your town

5th Avenue South

The Naples (commercial) gangs strike again!

Since the definition of graffiti is lettering scratched, scrawled, painted or marked in any manner on property, I think this fits today's theme, don't you?


Almost 150 City Daily Photo blogs participate in today's theme day. Please pay them a visit below:

Say hi to my Green Boy

Ann (MobayDP) said...

oooh I've been in that store! It was that entrance that drew me in actually :-D
Isn't it pretty?!

Ming the Merciless said...

Oooohh....how pretty and whimsical!

Nikon said...

Very nice store - clever art work.
In my neighborhood they'd have to chain the frog to a cinder block :-)

Kate said...

nikon made me laugh and also notice the frog. I guess we are supposed to notice the graffiti, murals, stencils. Can't make up my mind--just exactly what genre is it? Yes, it is charming--sweet, too.

Isadora said...

Perhaps in the strict sense (description) but this is NOT what most of us think when we hear the word graffiti. This is lovely and artistic.

Jilly said...

Just the name would make me make a beeline for this shop. Love it. My Menton choice is perhaps slightly outside the category but no murals, as such, in Menton!

I like your choice v much.

Neva said...

I LOVE this....my favorite...relatively speaking since there are soooo many today.....so far.

Southern Heart said...

That is very lovely!

~tanty~ said...

My favorite too.
You always come up with something special and different from others.

pope benoit III said...

I absolutely looooovvvee your choice of artwork for today, you little Hottie!

Sonia said...

Very nice, Isabella!

Love the frog at the door!

George Townboy said...

Beautiful! Are there a lot of these type murals around town?

Nathalie said...

Fits the bill beautifully, and what a rest for the eyes after the horrors we've seen elsewhere!

Felicia said...

Very appealing to the shopper in me! :)

Frank said...

Very nice! Just the place to hop into...Froggly speaking, of course.

Ben said...

This is pretty! Thanks for making me smile.

Keropok Man said...

oh that's so nice!

that's certainly not graffiti! hehe..


Happy Theme Day!

alice said...

All is so nice in your choice: style of the painting, characters, colors, name of the shop...everything fits me!

Helen said...

I like this alot. I would go in there just because of the entrance!

GMG said...

Well it seems that murals around the world were pretty busy yesterday. These tiles (?) look quite interesting, even for someone living in the tile capital of the world... (The guys from Delft learned it from here)! ;))
I've also some pictures on walls at Blogtrotter. Stunning, I think...
Have a great week!

Jana said...

How cute!!!! I loved the Wind the in the Willows as a kid.

Olivier said...

j'aime beaucoup cette peinture murale, elle est superbe. elle me rappelle un clip d'une chanson.
I like this wall painting very much, she is superb. she reminds me of a pop video of a song.

Lessie said...

I love this type of painting -- even inside a house.

raf said...

I like it ,even if I can't figure out what they sell

JAM said...

But thayut thar graffiti is CLASSY! That's graffiti for snooty people. I always stop and look at such things. I can barely draw a decent stick person, much less something that intricate.
