Of course, when checking out the finer sites of Oatman, one must always be cognizant of the fact that “crap happens”.
I finally have gone to the Miami, Arizona arts district and have photographed all the cat pictures I could find on the local walls. As mentioned in an earlier blog, an effort at beautifying Miami’s old business district and current arts district are worth bravos. In addition to the cats, I found waste bins that had been painted in glorious colors on different themes. I do not know who did these or if it was a collective effort, but they are good! The style is definitely different from the cat person. Some photos are included. If you see a rectangular background about 3 times as high as wide, that is the trash basket art work.
Miami, Arizona was hit hard in the 80’s when many of the copper mines shut down. Many Arizona copper mining towns were dealt a blow from which they have striven to overcome in the ensuing years. If you love cats and color, you will love these photos.
