    Across Northern Ireland, various 'hard' elements/supports of their cause have murals painted on the side of homes as a warning that you may be in the wrong area and depending on your nationality or religion, your life could be in danger! Although Northern Ireland is a safer place today, it wasn't the case back in the 70's where you had days like 'Black Friday' when 22 car bombs exploded across Belfast in a single day....

    That's cool, Renair. Not only a good photo, but a good slice of history.

    Oh my, there's no mistaking the message! A very stark image (I like it).

    There are paintings on buildings like this all across Northern Ireland. Here is one my friend took in Derry.

    If any of you ever get to Ireland and want to go to Belfast to photograph these, let me know, I will gladly show you around......

    Great work, and quite sad when you realize that one day someone will just paint over that amazing piece.
