Fun mural on Harbor Drive in Barrio Logan.

Barrio Logan, just south of downtown San Diego, is bursting with huge, colorful street murals.  Several great examples can be found around the intersection of Harbor Drive and Cesar Chavez Parkway.  The one shown in these pics is immediately north of the intersection.

This mural is fairly large, so I’ve broken it up into several photos, moving from left to right.  The first part depicts kids and playful, animated fruit.  This gives way to a scene of a train moving through what appears to be an estuary full of birds.  A narrow panel along the side of the train is made of a shiny, reflective material.

I believe this mural was painted by Salvador Roberto Torres, who was one of the founders of nearby Chicano Park.
