Elvis 1

I don't know who painted these, but there are two beautiful portraits of "The King" on a random cement wall just outside of College Place. Any time you drive from Milton-Freewater into WW/CP, you see these two paintings, and I've wanted to stop and get photos of them for months. Finally, I did. Up close they are even more phenomenal than just glancing at them from the highway. I'm not even sure why the artist chose this spot. Perhaps they live in the house at the top of the wall? Perhaps they got tired of seeing the ugly plain cement wall every time they drove between the towns? I don't know, but I wish I could tell the artist that they did an amazing job. Tomorrow I'll show you the second one, which is located just to the right of this one.

Must say that's a good image...but I can't imagine why people in Walla Walla care about the long dead Elvis...oh wait, he lives! ;-)
