Thursday Doors – March 29, 2018

Valparaiso, Chile

This city has an amazing history of conflict, control, and earthquakes. Today, the city spreads high into the hills surrounding the natural bay. Here are a couple of shots to give you an idea of how it appears.

The snow covered mountain in the background is Mt. Aconcagua in Argentina. It is the tallest mountain in the world outside of Asia, at 22,837 feet.

Around the bay you will find many government and commercial buildings. In these lowland areas, most doors are covered with graffiti.

When you move up into the more residential hills, the graffiti is replaced with many artistic murals. The graffiti artists mostly respect these murals, leaving many building with beautiful artwork.

I want to close this post with a very bright building facade. This business is a liquor store.
