In Pueblo, Colorado there are levees which hold back the Arkansas river. There was a huge flood in 1921, so the levees serve an important purpose. However, there’s also an artistic side to the levees with the mural project, which has been around for decades.
When I saw that this week’s photo prompt is about endurance, I knew what photo I wanted to use. The art on the Pueblo levees has been an enduring art project and I grew up with some of the lovely murals. Of course, not all of the artwork along the river is officially sanctioned, as you can see.
I took this photo during a walk in the downtown area. If you’re in the mood for a bit of a walk, this bridge leads you from the bars, restaurants, and shops of downtown to the library. It was an area I walked often, and seeing LOVE written in giant letters under the bridge always made me smile. So far, as the years steadily pass, LOVE has continued to endure.
