Swim team


I found this mural inside Central Technical School where I take a German class every week. I find this one particularly attractive for the bright blue bathing costumes and the diversity of the swim team. The window is also a nice touch, although I could do without the paper sign pointing to the cafeteria! There are quite a few murals lining the halls of this school in fact, and I'll show you a couple more of them in the weeks to come.

In the meantime, you can enjoy more murals at Mural Mondays.

Blogger ate my comment again! I like this mural because it's so colorful and bright and cheerful. As to the sign, well, people gotta eat and so they need to get to the cafeteria...right? :-)

How's your German class going? I'd guess you know quite a bit of German already...

RedPat said...

it's really well done. I haven't been in that school in years!

VioletSky said...

weren't you just a little tempted to reach up and rip off that sign? accidentally.

I do not see many inside murals and this one is quite good...

I'm with Violet, I'd have sneakily "dislodged" the cafeteria sign! Neat mural, too.

Great colors in this mural. I am going to explore more to find indoor murals.

This mural has a sweetness about it. Maybe because it celebrates a school team within the school building. Kind of old fashioned looking too. Violetsky (such a rebel) had me imagining a strategic trip, a grab of the wall to steady yourself, and oops, a sign is in your hand. How'd that get there? Haha. Thanks for participating in this week's Monday Mural.

Now that's fun.

Bob Crowe said...

That's a hoot. It looks like two of the women are holding up the sign with their fingertips. Was it put there deliberately?

Like this swim team. I like the poses of the seated girls.

Jack said...

Do you think this is an imagined group of swimmers or perhaps the school's real swimmers at the time the mural was painted. I hate mysteries that I can't solve!

@Lowell - the German class is ok. It seems that the teacher is letting in students with lower and lower levels each semester though, so it gets a little boring for me sometimes. I really like the teacher though. :)

@RedPat - I don't know how it was before, but the inside is pretty run down. :S

@VioletSky & Oakland DP- I'd never do something like that! And there was someone passing through the halls while I was taking this shot. People already think you're a weirdo when you take pictures of walls. I didn't want to make them more suspicious by ripping down the sign. ;)

@Jack- I think it probably was a representation of the swim team at that time.

@Bob- I've never been to the cafeteria at this school. But next time I can explore and let you know if the sign has a purpose!

So cool!

For content and colour this is probably one of the nicest murals I've seen Halcyon, excellent find!

Seems like they are getting ready for a synchronized swimming! Lovely mural.

I hate the new word verification. Since I have trouble reading those "words", I am assuming others do too.
