Hideout Patio

I was hunting for murals when I spotted this one by UB5000 but I must say that the building really attracts a lot of attention from me. It has lovely proportions and seems to have been well-restored as this is a very old part of town and the buildings require so much upkeep.  No yellow birds on this side - he kept them all on the back wall which I showed you yesterday. I'm not sure what the significance of the octopus is - I may have to do a reconnaissance trip to this bar to find out!

Yes, I would say continued investigation is indicated.

Interesting mural.

Very nice! That octopus could be a serious threat to those ships.

We are all expecting a full report. A couple of visits to this bar might be required.

It looks like UB5000's art is taking over the neighbourhood. Thanks to you RedPat he getting lots of exposure.

That's a very unusual one, the octopus appears to be climbing up the building!

I'm intrigued too, especially after noticing that it's a giant octopus reaching out for two ships!

Wow, that is one interesting octopus, I would venture to guess with the addition of the two sailing ships there is a great story somewhere in there. You are so right, it is a gorgeous building. The window treatments are really lovely.

I like the building also Pat, the detail on the windows looks so good.
