Are they attractive because they have two eyes and a sort of brow? There is something to the design that is charming, and I suspect it isn't just the rounded corners, the glossy shine, or the fact that the bell on the front is controlled with a little string that goes in near the side window.
I wanted to see if Claude Lane's businesses survived the pandemic (the short answer is no), but while I was there, I had a chance to admire this new mural by 1AM Projects (1amprojects.com) (I love the video on their splash page!).
This isn't their first mural in this spot, AND this is the same team that put up the Ingleside Pride (on Ocean), Ocean Avenue panoramic mural at Geneva and Ocean, and a meadow at a local power substation mural as well!
It's lovely work, and I'm happy to see it.
I have friend in floaty places! Also: I am a vehicle geek. It's not just that I like boats, but when I look back on my childhood career fantasies (astronaut, firefighter, flight attendant), I see that they all had cool vehicles, and believe that was part of each role's allure. (The flight attendants were so NICE to me, that I wanted to be them more than the pilots.)
