      1. Resa, you’re tempting me to send you some of Puerto Rico’s murals that i see around here, the problem is that P.R. is crowded, and cars get in the way at times. There’s two or three I would love you to see; if I can get decent shot’s I’ll email them sometime, if you’re interested.

        1. I would LOVE graf or murals from Puerto Rico…cars or not!
          OMG! I would love to see the street art. I was there for 2 weeks about 15 years ago, and it is my most favorite place I have ever been.
          PLEASE SEND!!!
          I’ll give you full credits, of course. ❤
          Again,don't worry about cars. Of course…DO NOT GET HIT BY A CAR!
          Love to you!

          1. Thanks Resa, I think you might like them; they are so symbolic and full of cultural meaning. However, it’s hard to shoot them without cars in the middle, yet I’ll do it anyway.

Speak your art mind!
