Monday Mural: at the clinica

Usually a car parks along side this mural.  Recently, while driving down Fruitvale Avenue, the car was gone and I jumped out to take this picture.  The mural was done by Ernesto Olmos in 2005 with help from neighborhood youth.  It adorns a building used by the Clinica de la Raza and remains as bright as if it were done yesterday.

  1. This mural has a lot to say. I am also finding murals where parking seems to be popular.

  3. Great capture. Cars really are the bane of the city photographer.
