Midweek Blues: Train Mural

Hubs and I recently took a Saturday drive and crossed the Ohio River into nearby Marietta, Ohio. We had hoped to see some speedboat races but apparently we arrived too late. Driving around the city I spotted this train mural. I thought the train appearing as if it were coming out of the blue was perfect for Midweek Blues.
For more Midweek Blues please join Rebecca here.

Thanks for sharing.

Carletta, that is sooo neat! The out-of-the-blue surprise, the train mural... (if you like murals, I posted a beauty not too long ago, too.)

What a happy capture - it certainly does appear to be coming out of the blue.

Neat mural. Great shot.

That's a compelling perspective. I like the simplicity of it, that it is just a train coming out of the blue, with barely anything at its sides.

It really looks like coming out.

I am impressed with your header. I hope there's a place like that back home where I could run :)

I had to look again to make sure it wasn't real... loved your description of it as coming out of the blue - that's it exactly!

That is the best mural I've ever seen on a building. It looks like the train is coming right out of the wall.
My sister just moved to Marietta Ohio to live with her daughter. My niece's husband is a pastor there.

I have a mural of a train to post sometime soon, but it doesn't hold a candle to this one! Someone did an amazing job!

I must say that is a talented artist you painted that, love the colours also. You truly do feel as though it is coming towards you.
