365 Day Photo Challenge – Day 135

These brightly-colored garbage cans brought life to the otherwise dull, broken-down streets of Casco Viejo.

During my brief visit to Casco Viejo, this image really captured my eye and I knew it would be my ‘photo of the day’. Many of the garbage cans in Casco Viejo were painted with tasteful, colorful, artistic graffiti, and I LOVED it! The graffiti brought life to otherwise dull, broken down streets. I think they should do this everywhere, as it draws attention to where people should put their garbage. Sadly in Panama many people have not been educated enough on the fact that littering is destroying not only their country, but the environment. Just the other day I was driving behind a bus from which litter was being casually tossed out the windows. I was appalled!

The photo below was some graffiti that was on the interior walls of a broken down building, whose roof, doors and windows no longer existed, but where plants were being to grow within the walls. It was quite beautiful really!

Rob Brown (aka Roberto Chocolate), of Retirement Detectives, poses in the photo below, in front of some of the most tasteful graffiti I have seen to date. Love it!
