A mural with a difference this week I hope you like it.
A few weeks ago while in Wallingford I noticed a scooter drive past & park up in the square along with a few others. Well I can't pass them with out taking a photo as I used to won one. This one took my eye, it was a tribute to Amy Winehouse.

Nice scooter. Amy Winehouse, such a tragic life she lead, so much talent gone to waste.ReplyDelete
Granted she could sing and she wasted her life but she was never a favorite of mine may be it was how she lived put me off.Delete
I can imagine it cought your attention. This is a very special tribute to Amy.ReplyDelete
I thought so tooDelete
Great ! My lucky number in gold on a car.ReplyDelete
Best regards, Synnöve
Not a car Synnöve but nice to see your lucky number somewhere.Delete
I am wondering what kind of owner has such a scooter. Nice but also a bit morbide.ReplyDelete
A fan no doubt with his own personal tibuteDelete
A rather tasteful tribute.ReplyDelete
I thought it was goodDelete
I am very happy with my camera, Bill!
Thank you, these were done with my Phone, did not have my camera with meDelete
It's totally fabulous Bill.. What an amazing paint job! She was a tragic soul but I actually really loved her voice ..ReplyDelete
I thought the same as you but I'm told by the scooter rider I had been talking to that it was a wrap, but hay I'm not complaining I thought it was brilliant.Delete
A nice tribute. She had such a wonderful talent.ReplyDelete
I thought it was greatDelete
wow, what an awesome find! she was very talented...such a sad story...ReplyDelete
Very sad she wasted her life awayDelete
How interesting. Someone was obviously a big fan.ReplyDelete
Yes they were, I loved itDelete
That is an expensive paint job! Awesome find!ReplyDelete
No it's a photo wrap IE vinylDelete
Such a tragic life...ReplyDelete
Yes it was Birgitta very tragicDelete
That is quite an image. I never listened to Amy Winehouse and would have not have recognized her from the bike "mural." An interesting tribute to a life of sadness.ReplyDelete
I think it all depends on what music you listen to, I tend to like listening to the latest music in the charts and she was always in the news over here. She was a good singer not taking it away from her. A bit like a modern day Janice JoplinDelete
Fine to all the above...meanwhile, great takes!! Edinburgh cold and grey, but I'm here at last!! YAM xx
Good glad you got there safeDelete
I like it !
It is that, first I have seen like itDelete
Definitely different! The art work is great. I just read something about how so many different rock stars have died at age 27. That's kinda' weird and definitely sad, such a waste.ReplyDelete
Very true, too many die young and wastedDelete
Good one, Bill! It was a great loss when she died.ReplyDelete
Thank you PatDelete
Amazing photos of such a unique piece of mobile art....ReplyDelete
Thank you Susie, I took them on the phoneDelete
Dying of alcohol poisoning does not sound like a happy person. Addiction comes with so many attendant problems that suffering seems to trump the day. I wished she could have gotten a hold on her demons and lived to develop her incredible voice.ReplyDelete
Drink is a hard habit to kick when it gets hold, I found it hard but managed now I prefer to have a cup of tea or coffee. Much as I was not a fan of hers it was a great waste of life & talentDelete
Oops, forgot to say that I liked the image and am pleased you decided to link with this week's Monday Mural.ReplyDelete
No problem it is a favorite of mineDelete
Such a tragedy. I think that's a wonderful tribute.ReplyDelete
I thought it was very cool of themDelete
Hi Bill, just spotted this great photo of my scooter taken by you in Wallingford .ReplyDelete
I thought I should maybe explain my thoughts behind the design. The theme is my humble tribute to a women who I consider to one of the greatest female vocalists of my time and also to her massive contribution to music.
When asked in an interview by Harpers Bazaar - "do you have any unfulfilled ambitions?"
Amy replied "Nope!" ... "If I died tomorrow, I would be a happy girl."
She will always be forever 27 in my heart.
Your welcome Micky. I had a GT200 back in 1971 and loved it till I nearly got killed on it one morning going to work. Girlfriend was not impressed so the scooter went. I got rid of the wrong thing. Snice then I still have a love of Lambrettas and the designs on them. Yours was one that stood out even though I was never keen on her antics she could sing. Your bike is also on Flickr as well. Hope to see it around again some time.Delete
