Walked into town today for the exercise but it was bitterly cold and we were not prepared for that, as the sun was shining when we left home.

Too cold to stand around taking photos so the little camera stayed in my pocket ……. until we passed this mural. I drive past it a lot and think “must stop and take a photo one day” so walking past was my chance to grab one quick snapshot.

It is painted on the side of a chemist shop which looked very bedraggled when the neighbouring buildings were taken down because of earthquake damage.

It always make me feel good to see how creative some people are, and how much they still want our city to look as good as possible during our recovery period.
