Monday Mural: Jules Verne was here

It's amazing what you can find when you leave your well traveled routes.  Found this Jules Verne octopus painted across the front of this apartment building.  One of the residents told me it's been there at least 3 years.  Couldn't find a name or date.  This is found off Telegraph Avenue and 38th Street facing the MacArthur freeway.

  4. I also like to explore of the beaten track. Walking behind factories is one of my favourites. I have never found anything as spectacular and beautiful as this octopus.

  10. Your city has an endless supply. Is this typical of the Bay Area or just Oakland? Captain Nemo would have at this one.
