monday mural

A guy who was passing through the area when we were photographing this mural  shared the history depicted in the mural.  He said that in the past, before they built the stairs and stuff along the river, guys would go out with their nets four times a day to catch salmon. It would then be brought out at a hut at the edge of the river. The mural depicts such a scene.

  16. Excellent mural as you feel as if you could walk into this scene. Murals are often hard to photograph as there are too many things in front of them.

  26. How nice to find a local who explained the mural to you. That I'm sure was a bonus. It's beautiful, but the bird sort of overpowers everything else. Still, it's a great find and a good back story.
