  1. ...wow, what a collection. I one with all the bottles reminds me of the song 'Ten Thousand Bottles of Beer on the Wall.' Thanks Sami for hosting.

  2. Those are very edgy works of art! Really entertaining. In the unlikely event that I wanted a tattoo, I don't think I would get it from a place called "Dead Cat," not even in French.

    1. I agree Mae, Dead Cat can't have that many customers, it would certainly put me off too.

  7. GAG was my favorite, but I was sad that several had been tagged with graffiti. These are all SO interesting.

    I would have been by earlier, but completely forgot to link. DUH!!

  8. Murals help reduce graffiti although there is still some tagging I see, and I remember.

  9. Great murals!
    Is that guy having a glass of wine in the "store?!
    The Bookineur is my favorite.
    And isn´t it great our hubbies are always willing to join the fun :-)

    Hm. Would I want to take a seat there with that lady saying, "stay off" with her hands?

    Great series.
