My apartment has a good view of downtown, and in the middle of the view is this building that has a huge advertising mural covering the entire side. The building is on Wilshire Ave., and is actually a bit west of downtown. The "before" photo above is the best one I have, if I'd realized they were about to repaint it I'd have taken a better one.
Around Halloween, they started painting over the old mural one-quarter of the building at a time, and after about four days the side of the building was completely white. It then occurred to me to document the painting of the new mural with my rarely-used zoom lens:
It's an ad for the new videogame, Grand Theft Auto 5. There's at least one other mural like this downtown, although on a smaller building. It took about 2 weeks to paint this one.
