This was one of the shots I had taken for the March DP Theme Day post. I forgot about it. I've been busy these past few days and haven't taken many shots for posting. So, I wandered into my KLDP reserve library and came across it. I found this stencil art on a wall of an abandoned colonial house. It's not on private property so I wasn't being an outlaw. It's a row of houses standing a couple of feet from a main road in KL. I walked into one and saw this. I was surprised to see it. Why? Last year, I posted a shot of graffiti on this very same wall. Someone obviously painted over it and put this stencil on. Another great recycling idea. I wonder if I'll find another piece of art on it next year.

This reminds me, theme day is getting near again lol.

you mean taking photos of private properties there could cause you something? I heard that in the Philippines too but I am not aware if that is implemented in Vienna...hope I don't get arrested for doing so. lol.

I'm glad you went exploring back there. This stencil is so different from most wall art. It's an unusual subject. The figure is dynamic, walking and turning, which works well with the trumpet.
