[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Belfast, the capital city of Northern Ireland, has been home to some of the worst violence Ireland has endured. The Troubles, between the late 1960′s and 1998, divided the nation, mainly between Nationalist Catholics and Unionist Protestants. The Agreement on Good Friday (April 10th, 1998) brought an end to 30 years of suffering and bitter feuding between these communities. Throughout The Troubles both sides painted large murals on buildings, particularly in residential areas on houses.
This is my contribution to the theme.

This is a good contribution Francis, I like the historical aspect. Although I see why you composed/framed the shot the way you did, I wonder if it might have been good to move to the right to avoid the traffic signal? Just my rambling thoughts ;)

I don't care much for graffiti but this is well done with great art value. Nicely captured with wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

You have certainly captured all the details of this wall mural Francis Xavier,it portrays its story well.Well taken.



Hi Francis
interesting mural/graffiti to commemorated troubled times. clear details and sharp colors.

Bonjour Francis Xavier
An excellent illustration for the theme and a good painting
The cool door has something surprising among these illustrations of civil war
IMO it was not so much a war between Catholics and Protestants as it is always said than between native Irish and English conquerors...The recurrent provocation of the unionists every july 12th can certainly not been analysed as a contribution to peace.
Well done
best regards

Many end terrace houses have there own colours, this is a perfect example.
I like how you loose the door and wqindows with ease as you admire the image.

Hello Francis, there is so much history behind the murals around the towns and cities of Northern Ireland, and this is just one fine example.
Difficult to appreciate that this is actually someone's house.
Not cutting out the traffic lights shows the house in its location.
Tfs, regards Jean.
