The Blue Butterfly

(Edited)

I saw this Graffiti while I was traveling by bus from Porto to Bragança, in the spring of 2018.

This wall is located in a city called Vila Real, in the North region of Portugal.

The name of the city translates to Royal Town. It has such an odd name because it was founded in 1289 by King Dinis of Portugal. The name was never changed, not even when it was upgraded to the status of city in 1925, a few years after the fall of the Monarchy in Portugal, which happened in 1910.

It's an interesting and large piece, depicting a butterfly. The red colour of the background matches the blue colour of the butterfly very well. I always enjoy seeing these two colours together, you can't go wrong with such a combination.

Unfortunately, I couldn't leave the bus, as it was only making a very brief stop to let some passengers get off and others get in.

So, all I could do was grab my phone and take a couple of shots from inside the bus, when it was already in motion in direction to my final destination, Bragança...

Still, I hope you appreciate these shots, despite the low quality of the photos.

Oh wow, I really wouldn't have noticed that your shots were taken from within a bus if you hadn't told me so - I also love the color palette that was used here and I love butterflies - It does feel a little weird being in that neighborhood - but is is very pretty indeed :)

Really? I think they are a bit faded... I'm glad you liked it.

Here's a little bit of !BEER for you. Is the !DERANGED bot alive?

I am not a staunch fan of graffiti, but I must honestly say that sometimes the contrast they manage to make in rural areas is totally impressive, without a doubt an art that not everyone is able to appreciate, excellent post

Thanks a lot, I'm glad you liked it. I think Graffiti, when well done, it's a work of art! When it's poorly done, it's visual garbage! 🤣

Here's a little bit of !DERANGED !BEER for you!
