Murals of Downtown Hayward


I had to go to Downtown Hayward to do something and it was eerie. Nobody around, no cars, no nothing. Anyway, I walked around and took some pics of the murals that the city has done to brighten up downtown. It was nice to see them without anyone around and of course I had all my protection on:





















Hope you enjoyed this little tour on how my city over time has tried to make Downtown a more beautiful place.

  1. That picture of Dolly Parton doesn't look anything like her, but I like the area.

  2. The murals are really nice. I especially like the ones of people walking by the shops and the antique store. I miss going through the antique and vintage shops! Have a wonderful day.

  7. So many murals! It must be an American thing because we have nothing like that here in Australia. Very country and western themed and some very artistic efforts amongst them (and no tourists getting in the way of the camera!)
    Thanks for linking up with us at MLSTL and I've shared on my SM 😊

  8. Hi Patrick what fantastic murals. I have seen some near where I live but nothing as big as some of yours. It is probably good that there weren't too many people around so you could take your photos and take time to appreciate the art. Thanks for linking up at #MLSTL and have a great week.

  14. Lots of nice wall murals. I like the way artists are starting to make utility boxes along sidewalks into works of art. - Margy
