A mural in Raleigh's warehouse district. Sadly, I think the building is going to be torn down. So much for progress...

That's a pity Larry but I do like the lorry load of toilets
Larry Bliss: They add a certain something to the scene...

Very colourful. The building would probably cost even more to restore it to a useful state.
Larry Bliss: Probably so...
I like the fact that the whole of the building is involved in the paint, not just a part of the building.
Larry Bliss: I like that, too... more color to come...

This is well done and it looks great. Too bad that soon it will be gone, I hope there is space for another mural....
Larry Bliss: That would be nice...

It looks so vibrant, what a shame if it all comes down
Larry Bliss: I am just glad I was directed to this site when I was...
What a shame Larry it's a lovely building.
Larry Bliss: Yes, it is... it will doubtless be replaced by something less lovely...
In that case, Larry, you have preserved it for posterity. Thank you.
Larry Bliss: gosh, that's a grand thought...

That's a shame. The mural has a given the wall a 3D effect; very clever.
Larry Bliss: Yes... it's quite a good piece of artwork...
An interesting bit of street art!
Larry Bliss: Yes, indeed...
It is a shame when you suspect that what will replace this will be something anonymous
Larry Bliss: Yes, it is a shame... this is happening all over Raleigh, as fine old buildings are torn down...
it is too bad that the building will be torn down Larry... i love this mural... and the way that you framed it....petersmile
Larry Bliss: Thank you, Peter... I tried to do it justice.
